The romantic-sounding name had been a fancy of poor Elizas- and there was no caprice of hers, however trifling, that had not always been sacred with her adoring husband, and that was not doubly sacred now. The actual intensity of the widowers grief was known to no creature in this lower world.

His nephews and his nephews wives paid him pertinacious visits of condolence- nay, one of these nieces by marriage, a good motherly creature, devoted to her husband, insisted on seeing and comforting the stricken man. Heaven knows whether her tenderness did convey any comfort to that shipwrecked soul! She found him like a man who had suffered from a stroke of paralysis, torpid, almost imbecile.

Perhaps she took the wisest course that could possibly have been taken. She said little to him upon the subject of his affliction- but visited him frequently, patiently sitting opposite to him for hours at a time, he and she talking of all manner of easy conventional topics,—the state of the country, the weather, a change in the ministry, and such subjects as were so far remote from the grief of his life, that a less careful hand than Mrs.

Alexander Floyds could have scarcely touched upon the broken chords of that ruined instrument, the widowers heart.
