s–though piously desirous of seeing her favourite nephew married–would have thought it not only natural but inevitable that, while awaiting that happy event, he should try to induce an amiable young woman to mitigate the drawbacks of celibacy. Meanwhile, they might one and all weary of her if Chelles did; and a persistent rejection of his suit would probably imperil her scarcely-gained footing among his friends. All this was clear to her, yet it did not shake her resolve. She was determined to give up Chelles unless he was willing air max 1 sale to marry her; and the thought of her renunciation moved her to a kind of wistful melancholy.
In this mood her mind reverted to a letter she had just received from her mother. Mrs. Spragg wrote more fully than usual, and the un nike air max 1 ebay wonted flow of her pen had been occa nike air max 1 premium sioned by an event for which nike air max 1 red she had long yearned.
