John was waiting for the girl whose heart he knew,

 but whose face he didn’t, the girl with the rose.

Thirteen months ago, in a Florida library he took a

 book off the shelf and found himself intrigued with

the notes in the margin. The soft handwriting reflect-

ed a thoughtful soul and insightful mind.

In front of the book, he discovered the previous

owner’s name, Miss Hollis Maynell. With time and

effort he located her address. He wrote her a letter

 introducing himself and inviting her to correspond.

During the next year and one-month the two grew to

 know each other through the mail. A Romance was

budding. John requested a photograph, but she refus-

ed. She felt that if he really cared, it wouldn't matter

 what she looked like. Later they scheduled their first

meeting-7:00 pm at Grand Central Station in New York.

"You'll recognize me, " she wrote, "by the red rose I'll

be wearing on my lapel." So at 7:00 he was in the stat-

ion looking for the girl with the red rose.

A young woman in a green suit was coming toward him,

 her figure long and slim and her eyes were blue as flow-

ers. Almost uncontrollably he made one step closer to

her, and just at this moment he saw Hollis Maynell-a

woman well past 40. The girl was walking quickly away.

 He felt as though he split in two, so keen was his desire

 to follow her, and yet so deep was his longing for the

woman whose spirit had truly companioned him and up-

held his own.

He did not hesitate. He squared his shoulders and said,

 "I’m John, and you must be Miss Maynell. I am so

 glad you could meet me; may I take you to dinner?"

The woman smiled, "I don’t know what this is about,

son," she answered, "but the young lady in the green

suit begged me to wear this rose on my coat. And she

 said if you were to ask me out to dinner, I should tell

you that she is waiting for you in the restaurant across

 the street. She said it was some kind of test!"

It’s not difficult to admire Miss Maynell’s wisdom.

The true nature of a heart is seen in it's response to

the unattractive.
