MARY YONGE was born at Otterbourne, in Hampshire, on August 11, 1823; seventy years later she died in the same village.
Charlotte spent the money in building a lych-gate for the church that her father and her beloved master had contrived together so many years ago; as her friends specially desired that she should also have something for herself, she bought a little tea-table and tea-set which she used daily for the rest of her life.
