Стр. 190 - Crewdson — is he an accepted lover of Dolly's?' ' Oh no ! ' returned Patience. ' Thy father and Stephen Crewdson always desired this union of the two families, but the fulfilment of the wish is left entirely to Josiah and Dorothy.' ' He has been visiting you lately, has he not ? How did you all like him ? ' Very much indeed,' said Patience. ' I think him an excellent young man. But, Grace dear, Dorothy will never care for him ; it is easy to see that. He has none of those ways which win a girl's...
Стр. 42 - They're not here,' answered Mark ; ' they're at King'sheart, 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. Now thou art on the road, 'tis but a step.' 'Yes; let us go, Charles,' said Audrey; and then seeing her brother hesitate, she addressed Mark, asking him if it was far, and begging him to repeat the name of the place. ' Perhaps you would explain it...
Стр. 204 - 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. I have ruined my health, and toiled and slaved all my life, and my devotion is rewarded with contempt and ingratitude. I know I cannot stand it much longer ; and it is very hard to bear ; ' and here Lady Laura applied her...
Стр. 193 - Grace wanted to hear the news of the day from her husband, who at length said, — ' By the way, I had a note from Captain Verschoyle, asking me to dine at his club with him on Friday. Shall I accept ? ' ' Oh, do,' answered Grace ; ' I should like you to go ; you took a fancy to him, did you not ? ' ' Yes ; I think we both liked him.' ' Very much : I do not know when I have met such a thoroughly agreeable man.
Стр. 83 - Dorothy's colour came, as with a slight hesitation she answered, — " I think — that is, I know — that father and thou have always wished me to like Josiah Crewdson ; and now that I have seen him, and know him better, I do like him, and think him very kind and worthy, but — surely, mother, something more than liking is needed to make people happy ? " " Indeed, yes, my child, and that is what I wish to explain to thee. Love is apart from all this ; it is the charm which makes us tender to failings,...
Стр. 97 - ' That is a question I have asked myself several times' and hitherto I have been unable to give any answer. She is a very nice girl, and I might become very fond of her, but I should never be in love with her.' ' I think she would not say No to being Mrs Verschoyle,' said Audrey. ' I am not at all sure of that,' replied her brother ; ' but this I am sure of, that she will not break her heart if she is not asked, for with all her timid yea-nayishness, she has a very decided preference for herself,...
Стр. 279 - 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. They were certain that there was something more in it than met the eye ; but what that something could be they failed to discover. Dorothy had been in and out several times during the morning, but meeting with no other response to her...
Стр. 179 - Then a great wave seemed to sweep over her heart, and she recognized one before whom she was awed and abashed. The words she • would have spoken died away upon her lips, as he put his arm round her, saying tenderly, ' We have no need of words to tell our love, our hearts have spoken to each other, and made their choice before they even whispered to us their sweet secret. Oh ! Audrey, my own, how good God has been to me ! I had been doubting Him because I had lost worldly...
Стр. 41 - No, I should not,' answered Audrey ; ' and if I did it would make no difference. My curiosity would be satisfied, so do go, Charlie. I really think you should, for they were very good to you.' ' Yes, they were indeed,' replied Captain Verschoyle, ' Suppose I were to take a bunch of flowers to the girl. I saw some on the table, I remember; and you being with me, it would seem all right. I want them to think that I have come to thank them, not from any other motive.
