filled with company, and the Leeds offering was presented. Tuesday we parted from our excellent friends in Leeds, and soon found ourselves once more in the beautiful Dingle, our first and last resting-place on English shores.

And now came parting, leave-taking, last letters, notes, and messages. Thus, almost sadly as a child might leave its home, I left the shores of kind, strong Old England,--the mother of us all.
