689 ページ - I write) and they reflect and refract in all kinds of ways the leaves that are quivering at the windows, and the great fields of waving corn, and the sail-dotted river. My room is up among the branches of the trees ; and the birds and the butterflies fly in and out, and the green branches shoot in, at the open windows, and the lights and shadows of the clouds come and go with the rest of the company. The scent of the flowers, and indeed of everything that is growing for miles and miles, is most delicious.
534 ページ - B family were borne in on the top of a wave, and landed with their faces against the front of the platform. I read with the platform crammed with people. I got them to lie down upon it, and it was like some impossible tableau or gigantic pic-nic — one pretty girl in full dress, lying on her side all night, holding on to one of the legs of my table ! It was the most extraordinary sight.
459 ページ - I have never seen men go in to cry so undisguisedly as they did at that reading yesterday afternoon. They made no attempt whatever to hide it, and certainly cried more than the women. As to the "Boots" at night, and " Mrs. Gamp " too, it was just one roar with me and them ; for they made me laugh so that sometimes I could not compose my face to go on.
100 ページ - Its success is most prodigious. And by every post all manner of strangers write all manner of letters to him about their homes and hearths, and how this same Carol is read aloud there, and kept on a little shelf by itself.

92 ページ - I trace in many respects a strong resemblance between her mental features and Georgina's — so strange a one, at times, that when she and Kate and I are sitting together, I seem to think that what has happened is a melancholy dream from which I am just awakening.
60 ページ - I am disappointed. This is not the republic I came to see; this is not the republic of my imagination.
90 ページ - If ever I destroy myself, it will be in the bitterness of hearing those infernal and damnably good old times extolled. Once, in a fit of madness, after having been to a public dinner which took place just as this Ministry came in, I wrote the parody I send you enclosed, for Fonblanque. There is nothing in it but wrath ; but that's wholesome, so I send it you.
113 ページ - ... that same sea. It has such an absorbing, silent, deep, profound effect, that I can't help thinking it suggested the idea of Styx. It looks as if a draught of it, only so much as you could scoop up on the beach in the hollow of your hand, would wash out everything else, and make a great blue blank of your intellect.
6 ページ - Chronicle, its conductors would think I had any claim to some, additional remuneration (of course of no great amount) for doing so ? " Let me beg of you not to misunderstand my meaning. Whatever the reply may be, I promised you an article, and shall supply it with the utmost readiness, and with an anxious desire to do my best, which I honestly assure you would be the feeling with which I should always receive any request coming personally from yourself.
564 ページ - Hugh Littlejohn in his. Lockhart had been anxious to see me all the previous day (when I was away on the Campagna), and as we walked about I knew very well that he knew very well why. He talked of getting better, but I never saw him again. This makes me stay Mrs. Linton's hand, gentle as it is. Mrs. Lirriper is indeed a most brilliant old lady. God bless her. I am glad to hear of your being " haunted," and hope to increase your stock of such ghosts pretty liberally.
