Strana 108 - Charlotte, however, hoping to rouse his pride by the keenness of her taunts, would not desist — " If (she exclaimed), if the misery were all your own, it would matter little; but innocence must suffer — unthinking rioter! whose home was heaven to him! an angel dwelt there, and a little cherub, that crowned his days with blessings! — How has he lost this, heaven, to league with devils !" " Forbear, I say (replied he, impetuously), if you are my sister, spare the remembrance ; it wounds too deeply....
Strana 108 - I'ma beggar. — Why, tell it now. I, that can bear the ruin of those dearer to me — the ruin of a sister and her infant, can bear that too. Bev. No more of this — you wring my heart. Char.
Strana 259 - Who bless'd thee at the eventide, my son! And when the shadows of the night steal on, He will not call to prayer. The lips that melted, giving thee to God, Are in the icy keeping of the sod ! Aye.
