Description

Excerpt from The Home World: Friendly Counsels for Home-Keeping Hearts The home is a ruin, like the deserted house Irving describes: The house was now silent and deserted. I saw the windows of the study which looked out upon the soft scenery I have mentioned. The windows were closed - the library was gone. Two or three ill-favored beings were loitering about the place, whom my fancy pictured into retainers of the law. It was like visiting some classic fountain that had once welled its pure waters in a sacred shade, but finding it dry and dusty, with the lizard and the toad brooding over the shattered marbles.
