Excerpt from Young Musgrave
Been its delight before and was now its only stay. So far as the county knew, young Musgrave still lived, though he was never mentioned, for there had been no signs of mourning in the house, such as must have intimated to the neighbours the fact of John's death - which also of course would have made Randolph the heir. And save that once, not even Randolph had ever come to break the monotony of life in his father's house. Squire Musgrave and his daughter lived there alone now. They had been alone these fifteen years. They had little society, and did not keep up a large establishment. He was Old, and she was no longer young enough to care for the gaieties of the rural neighbourhood. Thus they had fallen out of the current Of affairs. The family was much respected, but comparatively little heard of after the undesired and undesirable notoriety it had once gained.
