MADAM,--After her six years' residence at the Mall, I have the honour and happiness of presenting Miss Amelia Sedley to her parents, as a young lady not unworthy to occupy a fitting position in their polished and refined circle.
In leaving the Mall, Miss Amelia carries with her the hearts of her companions, and the affectionate regards of her mistress, who has the honour to subscribe herself,
This is what she does: sets sail for Pall Mall, wearing all her pretty things, including the blue feathers, and with such a sparkle of expectation on her face that I stir my coffee quite fiercely.
Thus I have not an atom of sympathy with this girl, to whom London is famous only as the residence of a young man who mistakes her for someone else, but her happiness had become part of my repast at two P.M., and when one day she walked down Pall Mall without gradually posting a letter I was most indignant.
I was very well dressed, and had my gold watch as well as she; so I left the footman, and I puts myself in a rank with this young lady, having stayed till she had taken one double turn in the Mall
, and was going forward again; by and by I saluted her by her name, with the title of Lady Betty.
The careless glance of a lounger on the pavement of Pall Mall
filled him with a sudden anger.
It was Martin who guided them to the creek, Martin who decided just where to locate their camp, Martin who, early the next morning, unloaded the wagon and made a temporary tent from its cover, and Martin who set forth on a saddleless horse in search of Peter Mall
. When he returned, the big, kindly man came with him, and in Martin's arms there squealed and wriggled a shoat.
We had reached Pall Mall
as we talked, and were walking down it from the St.
The two men were strolling along Pall Mall
. The Prince had lit a large cigar, and was apparently on the best of terms with himself and the world in general.
In something less than two minutes she had left it again by a back entrance, stepped into another taxicab which was just setting down a passenger, and was well on her way back towards Pall Mall
. Her ruse appeared to have been perfectly successful.
The two men who had walked up together arm in arm from Downing Street, stood for several moments in Pall Mall
The first wounded mall
who appealed for help was sitting with his back against a dead comrade.
