HER LETTER
His Answer & Her Last Letter
By BRET HARTE
Pictured by ARTHUR I KELLER
 	PAGE
I'm sitting alone by the fire
Dressed just as I came from the dance. (In color) Frontispiece
Title. (In color)
Publishers' Note—Headpiece	5
List of Designs—Headpiece	7

Her Letter—Half-title
11
Is wasting an hour upon you	13
That waits—on the stairs—for me yet	15
With whom do I waltz, flirt, or talk?	17
To look supernaturally grand	19
And the hum of the smallest of talk	21
With the man that shot Sandy McGee. (In color)	23
The man that shot Sandy McGee	25
Of that ride,—that to me was the rarest	27
And swam the North Fork, and all that	29
Mamma says my taste still is low	31
That my heart's somewhere there in the ditches	33
His Answer—Half-title	35
I should write what he runs off his tongue. (In color)	37
Being asked by an intimate party	39
That with you, Miss, he "challenges Fate"	41
Though the claim not, at date, paying wages	43
And the rose that you gave him. (In color)	45
Is frequent and painful and free	47
Imparts but small ease to the style	49
In this green laurel spray that he treasures	51
But he lies there quite peaceful and pensive	53
For I have a small favor to ask you	55
Here's my pile; which it's six hundred dollars	57

Her Last Letter—Half-title
59
That you last wrote the 4th of December	61
And you're not to be found in the ditches. (In color)	63
From this spot, that you said was the fairest	65
To London, when Pa wired, "Stop"	67
And as to the stories you've heard	69
Whose father sold clothes on the Bar	71
With a look, Joe, that made her eyes drop. (In color)	73
To find myself here, all alone	75
Ah! gone is the old necromancy	77
And you called the place Eden, you know. (In color)	79
And the copse where you once tied my shoe-knot	81
There's the rustle of silk on the sidewalk	83
But there's still the "lap, lap" of the river. (In color)	85
There's a lot that remains which one fancies	87
He thinks he may find you	89
And good-night to the cañon that answers	91
I've just got your note. You deceiver!	93

Doctrine Publishing Corporation provides digitized public domain materials.
Public domain books belong to the public and we are merely their custodians.
This effort is time consuming and expensive, so in order to keep providing
this resource, we have taken steps to prevent abuse by commercial parties,
including placing technical restrictions on automated querying.

We also ask that you:

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Doctrine Publishing
Corporation's ISYS search for use by individuals, and we request that you
use these files for personal, non-commercial purposes.

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort
to Doctrine Publishing's system: If you are conducting research on machine
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a
large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the use of
public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help.

+ Keep it legal -  Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for
ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just because
we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States,
that the work is also in the public domain for users in other countries.
Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we
can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of any specific book is
allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Doctrine Publishing
