2). My Aunt Decima, the youngest of the daughters & older onl y than Uncle Irvine, was the pet of the family in my earl y childhood. As I first remember her she was just growing u p, in vigorous health, of finely developed form, & of a com mending style of beauty. I thought her then the most lovel y of human beings, & indeed she was very striking in appear ance with her fine bust, her magnificent dark & full eyes , her nose slightly Roman,her chiselled lips & chin, her vo ice of silvery clearness. She was anexquisite reader of po etry & we all used often to listen to her with great pleasu re as she recited choice passages from favourite authors in her own superior style. Scarcely was she grown up when sh e was addressed by Mr. James Heyward, son of Judge Thomas H ayward, a kind hearted man but in no way worthy of her, wh o nevertheless was successful in his suit & they were marr ied. He soon lived through his fortune & his health & she w as left a widow with a daughter and a son, in hope of suppo rting whom more adequately she removed, to Wilmington, Dela ware, & spent the remaining years of the lives of her child ren, both at whom married & have left families, but have be en lost sight of by me for several years, so that I do no t know now whether she, orwhich, if any, of them, is aliv e still.
