An Old Man's Story
We were twin brothers, Jasper and I. Our mother left this world of grief and sorrow at the moment of our birth, and we never knew her love; but her place was in part supplied by our father's old housekeeper, Dame Watson, who was a good, well-meaning soul, yet showing none of that tender care one's mother can feel.
Our father was engrossed by his business, and devoted but little time to his motherless boys. He was a merchant, and carried on trade in New York, some half an hour's travel by the railway. We lived in a grand old mansion by the Hudson River. The Morton Homestead was well known throughout the country for its antiquated and venerable appearance, having been built before the Revolutionary War, by our English ancestor, Sir Greenville Morton, who had emigrated to this country and adopted it for his own.
Time sped on, and when we were eighteen, ill-health, together with advancing age, caused our father to retire, with a competency, from business. We had received a good education from private tutors, and at the age of twenty we were ready to accede to our father's wishes and go into mercantile business, he furnishing us with a good capital to start with.
So far our lives had known only joy and happiness, we having scarcely a thought that was at variance with brotherly feelings; yet we were very different in disposition. I had inherited my father's stern will and hasty temperament, while, on the contrary, Jasper was gentle and slow to anger, with calm, loving disposition. But even with such different traits of character, we had never yet quarreled since our first childish years.
A sad change was to come over the spirit of our dreams, and this is how it came about. An aunt, our mother's only sister, living in an adjoining state, had, before leaving this vale of tears, requested our father to take care of her only daughter, as he was her nearest of kin then living. As father was only too glad to befriend the orphan, in a few days our cousin was an inmate of Morton Homestead.
