The following was the patriotic reply of the noble and accomplished lady, written on the back of the card: Sir: I do not desire to renew my acquaintance with the invaders of my State. Two other Hessian officers obtruded their presence into the parlor of Dr. Martin, and sent up their cards to his daughter, Miss Bettie Martin, an elegant and accomplished young lady, requesting also the renewal of an old acquaintanceship. Repairing to the parlor, with a look of ineffable scorn and contempt, she dashed the card into their faces, and said: Your absence, sirs, will be much better company to me than your presence. --Charleston Mercury, March 20.
