Not illustrated. 1833 edition. Excerpt: ...cried Miss Woodley, " if you will only be humble, and appear sorry. You know your power over him, and all may yet be well." She turned her speaking eyes upon her friend, the tears starting from them, her lips tremhling--"Do I not appear sorry?" she cried. The bell at that moment rang furiously, and they hastened their steps to the door of the apartment where Lord Elmwood was.

The servant opened the door, and she and Miss Woodley went in. Lord Elmwood, by this time, was composed, and received her with a slight inclination of his head: she bowed to him in return, and said, with some marks of humility, --"I suppose, my Lord, I have done wrong." "You have, indeed, Miss Milner," answered he; "but do not suppose that I mean to upbraid you: I-am, on the contrary, going to release you from any such apprehension for the future."

Yet she did not weep, or even sigh; but her friend, knowing what she felt, exclaimed, " Oh!" as if for her. ' She herself strove with her anguish, and replied-(but with a faltering voice), "I expected as much, my Lord." "Then, madam, you perhaps expect all that I intend?" " In regard to myself," she replied, "I suppose I do." "Then," said he, " you may expect that in a few days we shall part...".show more
