Southern correspondent is less egotistic, although she does have a good deal to say about her feelings and their relation to the solemn speculations of her correspondent. Now and then her husband breaks into the game with a few words of hard common sense as welcome as rays of sunlight to the perplexed and wearied reader. It would seem that Paul fancied himself a poet and had come to New York to enter upon a literary career. Yet, with every opportunity for studying life and character in the cosmopolitan city and distilling from his fresh knowledge material suited to the intellectual needs of the woman for whom he entertains a growing sentimental regard, he confines his broodings to his own petty emotions. Through all the correspondence there is no indication that he has profited in any way by his months of residence in the metropolis of the country. Caroline also neglects to discuss subjects that would certainly interest a very large number of Northern readers, for Kentucky has its own distinctive character and people, not to mention its horses. Consider for a moment the interesting letters that might pass between a woman who longs for news of the intellectual and artistic worlds of New York, of which she has heard so much and knows so little, and consider also how much she could say about the blue grass country, the great racing stables, and the fine old plantation homes of Kentucky that would charm and enlighten every intelligent person north of Mason and Dixon's Line. Better this than the introspective broodings of two small souls.
