Sida 71 - Not— not far from it," said Mary, resolved now to tell him the whole truth. " Let me see her — I will see her," he exclaimed, staggering towards the door. " It is too late !" cried Mary, forcing him into a chair : " but remember, dearest Lewellyn, that before she died you had kindly forgiven all her offences towards you."

Fanny was beautiful ; so much so, that •her beauty was the subject of conversation even amongst the genteel circles in , and many a youth of the same station with herself was earnest to be her accepted lover ; but professions...
Sida 41 - Lewellyn, not liking to have their joy damped by the sight of melancholy faces, went out to take a walk; and Fanny, leaning on the arm of her now military lover, led him in triumph, as it were, through the streets of his native town. When they returned, the father and Mary took Fanny on one side...
