Стр. 235 - I not said anything it would have been twenty minutes more before you would have uttered a word." "I beg your pardon, mamma; I was thinking." " Thinking, indeed ! " echoed Lady Laura. "I wish you would think a little of me ; but I am the last person my children ever consider.

Стр. 42 - Here they drew up and descended, and entering the shop, inquired if Mrs. Fox were at home. "Yes," replied Mark, thinking the question applied to her return from Exeter. "Could I see her?" said Captain Verschoyle. "And Miss Fox?" put in Audrey. "They're not here," answered Mark; "they're at King's-heart, where they keep house:" then seeing that Miss Verschoyle looked rather disappointed, he continued, "But if thou came to see them thou wilt go on there surely, or they'll be main disappointed.

Стр. 78 - only I have out-stepped him by coming through the back way to speak to James. Here he is,' and Nathaniel, after allowing Patience to welcome their guest, took him by the arm and led him up to Dorothy, saying — ' Dost thou recollect her ? — this is Dorothy.' Josiah thought he stood before the most beautiful creature he had ever seen in his life, and all the speech which; on his way from Exeter, he had been concocting, and which had seemed to flow more glibly each time he had repeated it to himself,...
Стр. 54 - Very well," returned his mother, delightedly. " If you throw the onus of management upon me, I think I may answer that you will have no cause for complaint. I have several pet schemes on hand which I think you will approve of, and before next season comes I hope you will both be well established, and independent of everybody.
Стр. 97 - VII.'s days, came unto the Chichesters by the marriage of Margaret, sole daughter of the house, with Geoffrey Chichester, who took the name of Dynecourt, by which honourable name this family hath ever since been known." Known at the Court of the virgin queen as grave and reliable advisers; known to have laid down life and lands for the martyr Charles; known at his son's gay revels as roistering gallants; known as the friends of each wanderer of the house of Stuart; known as men who were eyed with...
Стр. 326 - Josiah took her hand in both of his, and looking at her, — bis honest every-day face lit up by love — he said, "God bless and help thee, Dorothy?" and Dorothy's voice failing, she tightened her grasp, and tried to smile on him through her tears. Twelve o-'clock had struck, and still the Miss Crewdsons sat puzzling over and speculating about the cause of this sudden departure.

"Audrey/' said Captain Verschoyle, "give up all idea of this marriage; you may yet meet with some one to inspire a different feeling." "Never now: my heart is choked up with other gods; love could not take root in such a stony soil; the first little storm would tear it up to wither and die. Moreover, I must say this is rather cool of you to take me to task for my adoration of Mammon,...
Стр. 89 - Every time he tried to speak, his heart seemed to leap into his throat and choke the words. No such inconvenience, however, oppressed Dorothy, who looked smilingly into his face as she said, — "Oh yes; thou must come in the summer, and then we can go to the Mew Stone and to Cothele." But Josiah was not heeding a word she said. He was entirely occupied with wondering whether he might give her a kiss when he said farewell.
