He selected for this purpose a vessel called the Lark, remarkable for her fast sailing.
The month of March arrived, and the Lark was ordered by Mr.
"It is really pleasant enough," said he: "the whole day long I sit in the office amid the driest law-papers, and at night I fly in my dream as a lark in the gardens of Fredericksburg; one might really write a very pretty comedy upon it."
