Excerpt from Rosamund, Countess of Clarenstein, Vol. 3 of 3
Former pride, beheld with secret satisfaction the little scene which had passed before the chair of the Empress, they had a direct triumph over the lovely sister of the Duke of Rhonberg. Yet never perhaps was there seen a description of beauty more captivating, than that which'at this moment she presented. Her mournful brow was bound by a pale blue fillet. A faint color in her cheek animated her celestial complexion. The throne of loveliness was half-veiled beneath the rich lace which seemed kept down only by the heavy diamonds which, in form of a dove with outstretched wings, shadowed her bosom. What brilliant purity, what softness without insipidity, what pensiveness without dulness! As you gazed.
