[27] or the smiles of the young ladies of our native State, and that none but ladies of doubtful age will smile on such men.

That we will have nothing to do with young men who refuse to go to the war, and that Home Guards must keep their distance.

That the young man who has not pluck enough to fight for his country has not the manliness to make a good husband.

That we will not marry a man who has not been a soldier.

That we will not marry till after the war is over, and then “Home Guards!” No! never!
