187. oldal - Oh, it is you," he said, and broke out into a smile — which somehow made the face look even more worn and weary than before. " I thought you had all left." " So we have, sir. But Miss Whitney forgot her bag, and I have run back for it. She left it in the small room in the hall." " Oh ay, all right,
244. oldal - The sea was like a great surging plain, full of angry tumult — but it was a grand sight to see. The waves dashed over the pier, ducking the three or four venturesome spirits who went on there. I was one — and received a good blowing up from Mr. Brandon for my pains. The gale passed. The weather set *n again calm and lovely ; but we seemed to be no nearer hearing anything of the Clement-Pells.
112. oldal - questioned he, nibbling a bit of the parsley that was in the broth. " I — it is to pay a debt, sir," I answered, feeling my face flush hot. " Whose debt ? " By the way he looked at me I could see that he knew as plainly as though I had told him, that it was not my debt. And yet — but for letting him think it was mine, he might turn a totally deaf ear.

As if I minded the cold ! "I hope the whole lot, she and the young ones, won't look like skeletons, that's all. Tod, will you come?" " Not if I know it, old fellow. I have no fancy for seeing skeletons." " Oh, that was all my nonsense.

As to the boots, Hill declared they were his own, not David's ; and that Jim's eyes must have been deceived in the size. And he vowed and declared he knew no more than this, or where David could have got to. " What do you think you deserve for locking the child in the house by himself? " asked the Squire, sternly. " Everything that'll come upon me through it,
25. oldal - But what else, except a dream, do you fancy it could have been?" " Well, sir, that's what is puzzling me.

It sounded to be in the room, close to me : but the fright I was in might have deceived me — What's that ? " A loud rapping at the window had caused the climax.
5. oldal - His soft brown eyes had a shrinking tenderness in them, his face looked delicate as a girl's, and his hair hung in curls. But he was a little bit deformed in the back — some called it only a stoop in the shoulders — and, though fourteen, might have been taken for ten. The boy's love for his mother was something good. They had lived at Worcester, she having a small income, where he had been well brought up. When she married Hill — all her friends were against it, and it was in fact a frightful...
