with his grip and his polished shoes, and he asked
what's what, and I just up and told him, for it was
only five minutes of train time, and there wasn't
anyone else in the station. Abner bit his lip, and
he says to me, " You foolish child, go home again
quick and don't say a word to anyone," and then he
goes up to Mr. Johnson, and they had some pretty
hot words, and I thought they would come to blows
sure, and they would if Mr. Johnson hadn't con-
trolled himself, for Abner could have just picked
him up and thrown him out in a minute. Then
Abner brought him over to me and asked him what
he meant by taking away a young girl like me
without the consent of her parents, and I spoke up
and said I didn't have to have their consent, for he
knew very well I was an orphan, and not father
Barker's own child. And Abner said that only
made the matter worse, a great deal worse, and
he would stop it right there. At that, Mr. John-
son changed entirely, and said that he was willing
in that case to call the matter off, and though I
had deceived him, he said he'd trust to Abner's
instincts, as a gentleman, not to occasion any
publicity on my account. He would go on to town,
as he had important business, and leave me forever.
Abner said that his instincts as a gentleman
prompted him to knock Mr. Johnson down, and to
wipe up the floor with him, and things like that,
but he said he would see him off, as the train was
coming, and he wasn't so much as to speak to me.
Then he said, "Get," and Mr. Johnson got on the
train, and to tell the truth, I was mighty glad to
see him go. Tlien Abner spoke just like a brother,
and told me to run home at once, and nobody
should ever be the wiser.

Sept. 30th. I was ashamed to send this letter
as it was, and I'm ghid now I didn't. I have
read it over, and though I was going to burn it up,
I will let you have the whole story, for it might
be a lesson to some poor girl who might be just as
foolish as I was. But I'll take out anything that
is uncomplimentary to Abner, for the fact is, I
didn't appreciate him at first. I do now. Ibelieve
be is just the kindest and the best man that ever
lived, and if it hadn't been for him, that horrid
Mr. Johnson would have carried me off, just for
the sake of the money he thought I was going to
get from father, for I shall always call him father,
because be has been so good to me. I've learned
all about him, I mean Mr. Johnson, but I won't
tell von what a rascal he is.

Well, it is all settled. Abner and I are to be
married in October, and father is going to join the
Greenway farm on to Abner's, and he says he is
goiug to give me twenty of the best stock in Lincoln
County. I'm just as happy as I can be, and I
don't want any more romance.

Ever your affectionate

Mary Ann.
