Abstract

Gill has not heard from Clark for six weeks and is worried that he has some flaw in his moral nature that makes him unworthy in Clark's eyes. He attended the marriage of McKenzie to a lady of fortune, a grand affair, and they appear to be very suited. He has again been in poor health. He has cleared up his entanglement by discovering that the lady in question is about to be engaged to someone else. However he has a great attraction for Miss Burke but her parents have another suitor in mind for her. Great elaborations on how to secure a realtionship with her and certainly marriage, in spite of the parents, and needing Clark's advice. C4/C124
