Fanny Fern, RUTH HALL, New York, Mason Brothers, 1855, 400 pages.

“Can’t afford it, Tom; hang it! we are head over ears in debt now to that paper man; good articles though—deuced good—must have her if we dispense with some of our other contributors. We had better begin low though, as to terms, for she ’ll go up now like a rocket, and when she finds out her value we shall have to increase her pay, you know.”
(Thank you, gentlemen, thought Ruth, when the cards change hands, I ’ll take care to return the compliment.)
(p. 253)
