He was too occupied with his own affairs to pay much attention to their faces, or perhaps he might have asked himself why the young man was so pale, and his daughter so red. " I heard you were here, Little, and I want to speak to you on a matter of some importance."...
Seite 202 - Raby took into his head to repair the old church, and be married in it. This crotchet postponed his happiness for some months. But the days and weeks rolled on. Raby became Sheriff of the county. Coventry got a little better, and moved to the next villa.

But Little, the man of action, began to faint. He decided to return to the United States...
Seite 197 - ... and, throwing himself backward with a jerk, tore her out of the water by an effort almost superhuman. Such was the force exerted by the torrent on one side, and the desperate lover on the other, that not her shoes only, but her stockings, though gartered, were torn off her in that fierce struggle. He had her in his arms, and cried aloud, and sobbed over her, and kissed her wet cheeks, her lank hair, and her wet clothes, in a wild rapture. He went on kissing her and sobbing over her so wildly...
Seite 199 - ... the hospital and a healthy nurse assigned it. Ransome prevailed on Little to go home, change his' wet clothes, and lie down for an hour or two. He consented, but first gave Ransome an order to lay out a thousand pounds, at his expense, in relief of the sufferers. Then he went home, sent a messenger to Raby Hall that he was all right, took off his clothes, rolled exhausted into bed, and slept till the afternoon.
