219 페이지 - IN vain you tell your parting lover, You wish fair winds may waft him over. Alas ! what winds can happy prove, That bear me far from what I love ? Alas ! what dangers on the main Can equal those that I sustain, From slighted vows, and cold disdain?
96 페이지 - Very few looked at Griffith Gaunt to see how he took his mistress's good fortune, that was his calamity ; yet his face was a book full of strange matter. At first a flash of loving joy crossed his countenance ; but this gave way immediately to a haggard look, and that to a glare of despair. As for the lady, she cast one deprecating glance, swifter than lightning, at him she had disinherited, and then she turned her face to marble. In vain did curious looks explore her to detect the delight such a...
95 페이지 - He looked bitterly disappointed at the interruption, but put a good face on it, and had more chairs in, and saw them all seated, beginning with Kate and the other ladies. The room was spacious, and the entire company sat in the form of a horse-shoe. The London solicitor was introduced by Griffith, and bowed in a short, business-like way; seated himself in the horse-shoe aforesaid, and began to read the will aloud. It was a lengthy document, and there is nothing to be gained by repeating every line...
96 페이지 - And as to all my messuages, or tenements, farms, lands, hereditaments, and real estate, of what nature or what kind soever, and wheresoever situate, together with all my moneys, mortgages, chattels, furniture, plate, pictures, wine, liquors, horses, carriages, stock, and all the rest, residue, and remainder of my personal estate and effects whatsoever, (after the payment of the debts and legacies hereinbefore mentioned,) I give, devise, and bequeath the same to my cousin...
336 페이지 - She held up her hand, and he recited the indictment, which charged that, not having the fear of God before her eyes, but being moved by the instigation of the Devil...
80 페이지 - And I told her my granddam would have whipped her well for it ; but now-a-days mistresses were the only sufferers : we had lost the use of our hands, we are grown so squeamish ; and I stamped like a fury, and said ' Get you gone out of the room ; and I hated the sight of her.
144 페이지 - The said window was large and had a broad sill outside, and inside, one of the old-fashioned high windowseats that follow the shape of the window. Mrs. Gaunt, who did nothing by halves, sent up a cart-load of flowerpots, and Betty and the gardener arranged at least eighty of them, small and great, inside and outside the window. When Leonard returned from preaching, Betty was at the door to watch. He came past the window with his hands on his breast, and his eyes on the ground, and never saw the flowers...
43 페이지 - Miss Peyton was gratified and affected, and a tear trembled a moment in her eye, but went in-doors again, and left her firm as a rock sprinkled with dew. She told him she could quite understand his feeling, and thanked him for it ; but she had long and seriously weighed the matter, and could not release him from his promise. " No more of this base borrowing," said she, and clenched her white teeth indomitably.
57 페이지 - Now she walked the room in violent distress, wringing her hands ; now she kneeled and prayed fervently for both those lives she had endangered ; often she flew to the window and looked eagerly out, writhing and rebelling against the network of female custom that entangled her and would not let her fly out of her cage even to do a good action, — to avert a catastrophe by her prayers, or her tears, or her good sense. And all ended in her realizing that she was a woman, a poor, impotent being, born...
65 페이지 - At this horrible explanation, Kate sank forward on her horse's mane as if she herself had been killed ; and the smoke from the pistol came floating, thinner and thinner, and eddied high over her head. Tom spoke rude words of encouragement to her. She did not even seem to hear them. Then he lost all patience at her, and clutched her arm to make her hear him. But at that it seemed as if some of his nature passed into her down his arm, for she turned wild directly and urged her horse fiercely up the...
