The Devoted Widow
by [?]

A Widow weeping on her husband’s grave was approached by an Engaging
Gentleman who, in a respectful manner, assured her that he had long
entertained for her the most tender feelings.

“Wretch!” cried the Widow. “Leave me this instant! Is this a time to
talk to me of love?”

“I assure you, madam, that I had not intended to disclose my affection,”
the Engaging Gentleman humbly explained, “but the power of your beauty
has overcome my discretion.”

“You should see me when I have not been crying,” said the Widow.
