I thought you should hear it was somebody. Did you think it was the fireengines ? " " Why did you not let us know you were coming ? " "How could I let you know?

I know our master ; he sticks to his word when he's roused. You'd better begin with them pots and kettles. They can go in that empty case." Mrs. May dried her eyes, and slowly rose. " Come, Sophiar," she said, " von must lend a helping hand to-day.
Pàgina 229 - I am not given to metaphysics, Maria," remarked Mr Raby, as he again escaped from the room. Mrs Verner Raby died. Raby, in due course, went to Eton, and afterwards to college. A shy, proud young man : at least, his reserved manners and his refined appearance and habits gave a stranger the idea that he was proud. He kept one term at Oxford, and had returned to keep a second, when a telegraphic despatch summoned him to London. Mr \Terner Raby had died a sudden death.
Pàgina 246 - He strode away with her, and Raby, with a drooping head and sinking heart, descended the middle steps of the terrace. He stole along under cover of its high wall — anywhere to hide himself and .his outraged feelings. That action, those words of Mr Yorke's, had but too surely betrayed his interest in Maria. He came to the end of the terrace, and found they had halted there, right above him. He was to hear worse words now, and he could not help himself. " Then you had no business to do it — you...
Pàgina 12 - " Do try to speak in English, Sophiar," urged Mrs. May, with tears in her eyes. " How ever shall we get along if you don't? What is it that's the matter ? Did you see anything that frightened of you ?" " It is such a — what do you call it in English ? — dreadful piano. I had as soon have touched an electric battery.
