Misc. Comments

"Adapted to a favorite Melody."

"O, if she would only wake and speak once more! he said; and stooping over her, he spoke in her ear, "Eva darling" The large blue eyes unclosed, a smile passed over her face; she tried to raise her head and to speak. "Do you know me Eva" "Dear papa," said the child, with a last effort, throwing her arms about his neck. In a moment they dropped again." --Uncle Tom's Cabin, Vol. 2 p. 112.

"Uncle Tom," said Eva, "I am going there."
"Where, Miss Eva!"
The child rose and pointed her little hand to the sky; the glow of evening lit her golden hair and flush'd cheek with a kind of unearthly radiance, and her eyes were bent earnestly on the skies.
