Strana 5 - I live," says I. Fra. There you were very right. Did you carry him much money. Pet. I don't know ; I didn't count it. It was in a bit of a green purse. Mayhap it may be some little matter that she has scraped together in the last fortnight. Fra. And why just in the last fortnight ? Pet. Because, about a fortnight since, I carried him some money before. Fra. From Mrs. Haller ? Pet. Ay, sure ; who else, think you ? Father's not such a fool.
Strana 22 - Steinfort, we will take the ladies home, and then you shall try once again to see him. You can talk to these oddities better than I can. Bar. If you wish it, with all my heart. Count. Thank you, thank you. Come, ladies : come Mrs. Haller. • [Exeunt.
Strana 39 - I wish to be alone. Sol. As your lordship commands. If the time should seem long in my absence, and your lordship wishes to hear the newest news from the seat of war, you need only send for old Solomon. I have letters from Leghorn, Cape Horn, and every known part of the habitable globe. [Exit, L.
Strana 31 - ... family wishes to behold you in its circle. You refused my sister's messenger ; therefore, to give more weight to the invitation, I was deputed to be the bearer of it. And thus has fortune restored to me a friend, whom my heart has so long missed, and whom my heart just now so much requires. Stra. Yes, I am your friend ; your sincere friend. You are a true man; an uncommon man. Towards you my heart is still the same. But if this assurance be of any value to you — go — leave me — and return...
Strana 5 - I don't know ; I didn't count it. It was in a bit of a green purse. Mayhap it may be some little matter that she has scraped together in the last fortnight. Fra. And why just in the last fortnight ? Pet. Because, about a fortnight since, I carried him some money before. Fra. From Mrs. Haller ? Pet. Ay, sure ; who else, think you ? Father's not such a fool. He says it is our bounden duty, as Christians, to take care of our money, and not give any thing away, especially in summer ; for then, says he,...
Strana 38 - Sol. Extraordinary ! One can make nothing of her. Today, the vicar's wife is not good enough for her. To-morrow, you may see her sitting with all the women of the village. To be sure, she and I agree pretty well ; for, between me and your honourable Lordship, she has cast an eye upon my son Peter. Bar. Has she ? Sol. Yes — Peter's no fool, I assure you. The school-master is teaching him to write. Would your honourable Lordship please to see a specimen ? I'll go for his copy-book, He makes his pot-hooks...
Strana 48 - Reproaches ! Here they are ; here on my sallow cheek — here in my hollow eye — here in my faded form. These reproaches I could not spare you. Mrs. H. Were I a hardened sinner, this forbearance would be charity : but I am a suffering penitent, and it overpowers me ! Alas ! then I must be the herald of my own shame. For where...
Strana 46 - She, therefore, framed a deep-concerted plan. She played a charitable part ; but in such a way, that it always reached my ears. She played a pious, modest, reserved part, in order to excite my curiosity. And, at last, to-day she plays the prude. She refuses my forgiveness, in hopes, by this generous device, to extort it from my compassion.
Strana 6 - Even charity is a burden if one may not be grateful for it. Mrs. H. To-morrow, good Tobias ; to-morrow. Bar. Nay, no false delicacy, madam. Allow him to vent the feelings of his heart ; and permit me to witness a scene which convinces me, even more powerfully than your conversation, how nobly you employ your time. Speak, old man. Tab. Oh, lady, that each word which drops from my lips, might call down a blessing on your head ! I lay forsaken and dying in my hut : not even bread nor hope remained.
Strana 51 - I am happy that it is so. You shall not be without the power of gratifying your benevolence. I know you have a spirit that must shrink from a state of obligation. This paper, to which the whole remnant of my fortune is pledged, secures you independence, Adelaide...
