Excerpt from Time, the Avenger
Caroline sat by the window near the sofa of her sister, looking out into the garden and watching as it were the never-ceasing stream of people who were passing behind the trees; but her thoughts were far away. They were dwelling upon the death-bed of her father - that weak and wretched sinner. They were asking those deep, those awful questions, which the departure of a poor, imperfect, guilty creature calls up in the yearning mind.
When the excellent depart, the thoughts repose in faith. The dark curtain has dropped - the impenetrable mystery lies undiscoverable behind; but every instinct of our nature seconds every conclusion of our reason, and declares that mystery to be the mystery of an unimaginable felicity.
