CHAPTER I.

THE ENLIGHTENERS.

"I would you had been there to see
How the light blazed up so gloriously.”

Sir Walter Scott.

It was a fine frosty morning in December, and the sun shone cheerfully on the southern exposure of a hill, near the town of Killandrum, over which two young men rambled, in merry companionship, with dogs at their heels, and fowling-pieces in their hands.

“Well, James," said Mr. M Govern to his companion," is it to be, or is it not ? "To be, or not to be that is the question.' Poor Miss Mulkelly ! it is cruel to leave her in suspense. The prevalent impression a month ago, was, that you certainly intended to marry her immediately.”
