Ms. G.P. and Licetta Conrad requested me to write for the New York Mirror for them. These two sisters are, in their disposition, as dissimilar as though they were unconnected. Both may be said to be fine girls, but Paulina preeminently so; indeed there are few equal in mildness and evenness of disposition or more kind, affectionate to their parents, and to all with whom she is acquainted. The other, or Licetta, is much more morose, bold and more masculine, but not sufficiently so to be repulsive. She is more avaricious and grasping, and has not that fineness of feeling so perceptive in Paulina. Yet whoever has an opportunity of becoming very intimately acquainted with these two individuals under a variety of circumstances will find Paulina more inexorable in her antipathies than the Licetta.
