Arriving there, she was ushered into the blue drawing-room by Dobson, in bis character of footman, and in a few minutes Lucia appeared. When Mrs. Burnham 6aw her, she assumed a slight air of surprise. " Why, my dear," she said, as she shook bands, " I should scarcely have known you." And though this was something of an ex aggeration, there was some excuse for the exclamation. Lucia was looking very charming, and several changes might be noted in her attire and appearance. The ugly twist had disappeared from her delicate head, and in its place were soft, loose waves and light pufts ; she had even ventured on allowing a few ringed locks to stray on her forehead ; her white morning-dress no longer wore the trade-mark of Miss Chickie, but had been re-modeled by someone ...

Dancing commenced at 9 p.m., and as the hour approached fully 120 ladies and gentlemen assembled in the fine ...
