On the south side of the market rises up the church with its great gray towers, of which the sun illuminates the delicate carving ; deepening the shadows of the huge buttresses, and gilding the glittering windows and flaming vanes.
Seite 9 - At a quarter past ten the Major invariably made his appearance in the best blacked boots in all London, with a checked morning cravat that never was rumpled until dinner time, a buff waistcoat which bore the crown of his sovereign on the buttons, and linen so spotless that Mr.
