Transcription Happy-go-Lucky passed out of the precincts where she had made
herself felt in storm and thunder, and gradually disappeared .. .
Peace be upon her course, and upon the fortunes of those who have
so long beguiled our interests! Their world has put on a brighter
aspect; and Saturn and Mars no longer rule in the house of Venus

Perhaps then Simms posits some hope for bright Zulieme and her glum
Harry? Whatever the outcome for this couple, I think Scarlett O'Hara's immorta
words that conclude Margaret Mitchell's epic romance apply to lonely but
forward-looking Zulieme Calvert as well: "'I'll think of some way to get him
back. After all, tomorrow is another day' (1037).
