NEW WORK BY MRS. UPCHER COUSENS. Durndale; or, Woman's Duties and Woman's Worth. A tale of great interest founded on fact, very suitable for a prize or gift-book.

“ These are Woman's Duties
She learns to govern, having learned to serve,
And serves she does, and comes, and goes,
And waits on parent, brother, guest, and friend,
With ready hand and cheerful heart. No road
Too rough, no hour too late, no work too coarse -
Herself forgot, for others she must live.
Become a wife, her labours multiply ;
Sickly herself, the sick she must console,
And watch her feeble babe by day,
And wake (oft weep) by night.
No limit have her toils, no end her cares,
Not twenty men could them support, nor should

They; but they should acknowledge Woman's Worth." Illustrated with Title and Frontispiece, size, fcp. 8vo, bound in cloth, lettered side and back. Sell 6s.
