FLEETWOOD; or, THE NEW MAN OF FEELING. ____ VOLUME THE SECOND CHAPTER II       " No sooner did the thought occur to me, than I resolved to lose no time to realize it.

I immediately entered the park ; and, having gained a favorable situation for viewing the palace, protected by the shadow of overhanging trees, I threw myself upon the grass.
