Four months had sped by since the Prince's messenger had come to Lilliesford — months that had gone swiftly with him as some sweet delicious dream ; and the time had come when he had orders to ride north, secretly and swiftly, speak with Mr. Forster and other gentlemen concerned in...

Fay would fain have turned and fled, but Keane smiled, kept one arm round her, and stretched out his hand to the governor. " General, I came once uninvited, and I am come again. Will you forgive me ? I have a great deal to say to you, but I must ask you one question first of all. Will you give me your treasure ? " "Eh! humph! What? Well —I suppose — yes," ejaculated the General, breathless...

So she stood on the terrace the first morning of her exile, her thoughts far...
Seite 15 - ... be more completely wrung out of it than it has ever been since the aged Gabriel performed that work of purification on the infant Mahomet. It was the June of the year '15, and the coming disaffection was seething and boiling secretly among the Tories; the impeachment of Ormond and Bolingbroke had strengthened the distaste to the newcome Hanoverian pack, their attainder had been the blast of air needed to excite the smouldering wood to flame, the gentlemen of that party in the South began to grow...
Seite 14 - ... them ; I say, I do honour to those who can be coquettes, and are not such ; but I despise all who would be so, and, in despair of arriving at it themselves, hate and vilify all those who can.
Seite 49 - Ge«rge ! one could die for a woman like that— eh ?" " Die !" I echoed, while my horse stumbled along up the hilly road, and I swayed forward, pretty nearly over his head, while poetry rushed to my lips, and electric sparks danced before my eyes : 'To die for those we love! oh, there is power In the true heart, and pride, and joy, for this. It is to live without the vanished light That strength is needed...
Seite 13 - Perhaps she was cold ; she might be ; they were personnable men? Oh yes ! she had nothing to say against them. His Grace of Belamour ? — A pretty wit, without doubt.
