The Gipsy Girl - How romantically suggestive was this feminine phrase to the fancy of our enthusiastic reporter. Was it then indeed permitted that he should know Meg Merrilies in private life! His heart danced at the poetic possibility, and his heels would have extemporized a vigorous hornpipe but that his ardor was quenched by the depressing sturdiness of cow-hide boots.

The sixth article in the Tribune's "The Witches of New-York" series, written by acclaimed humorist Mortimer Thomson under his pseudonym Doesticks Philander.
