"Seth suspended for a moment the whittling his twig, and there seemed a crisis in the argument--a silent pause--when a shrill voice from the front gate adjourned the meeting instanter. It was the voice of Aunt Nabby herself, breathing authority and hospitality--Joshua, come to dinner, and bring the folks along with you." Jack Downing's Journal--N.Y. Gazette, Oct. 28, 1835. (Reed collection.) [P. 4; the words "silent pause" appear in italics in the catalogue.]
