The tranquillity of the monastery, and the liberty she was suffered to enjoy, in wandering among the woods and shores of this delightful province, gradually restored her spirits to their natural tone, except that anxiety would sometimes intrude, concerning Valancourt, as the time approached, when it was possible that she might receive an answer to her letter.
Might I ask from whom?The road winding round the base of a mountain, they now came within view of the castle, which was shewn in the perspective of the valley by a gleam of moon-shine, and then vanished in shade; while even a transient view of it had awakened the poignancy of Emilys feelings. Its massy and gloomy walls gave her terrible ideas of imprisonment and suffering: yet, as she advanced, some degree of hope mingled with her terror; for, though this was certainly the residence of Montoni, it was possibly, also, that of Valancourt, and she could not approach a place, where he might be, without experiencing somewhat of the joy of hope.
This was the first and the last entertainment, given in celebration of their nuptials. Montoni, though the severity of his temper and the gloominess of his pride prevented him from enjoying such festivities, was extremely willing to promote them. It was seldom, that he could meet in any company a man of more address, and still seldomer one of more understanding, than himself; the balance of advantage in such parties, or in the connections, which might arise from them, must, therefore, be on his side; and, knowing, as he did, the selfish purposes, for which they are generally frequented, he had no objection to measure his talents of dissimulation with those of any other competitor for distinction and plunder. But his wife, who, when her own interest was immediately concerned, had sometimes more discernment than vanity, acquired a consciousness of her inferiority to other women, in personal attractions, which, uniting with the jealousy natural to the discovery, counteracted his readiness for mingling with all the parties Tholouse could afford. Till she had, as she supposed, the affections of an husband to lose, she had no motive for discovering the unwelcome truth, and it had never obtruded itself upon her; but, now that it influenced her policy, she opposed her husbands inclination for company, with the more eagerness, because she believed him to be really as well received in the female society of the place, as, during his addresses to her, he had affected to be.Pray, what is the reason of that?Women of the De Merville type do not act like that. She wouldlove him the more as a disfigured martyr. No, no. It is his moralside, not his physical, which we have to destroy. That book will bringher back to earth- and I know nothing else that could. It is in hisown writing. She cannot get past it.
He has been heard of in Liverpool. They expect to get him everyhour.ONCE a stranger youth to Corinth came,
If I have wept in solitude,
I will trust you then, said the Count, for conviction is necessary to your peace, and cannot, I perceive, be obtained, without this confidence. My son has too often been an eye-witness of the Chevaliers ill conduct; he was very near being drawn in by it; he was, indeed, drawn in to the commission of many follies, but I rescued him from guilt and destruction. Judge then, Mademoiselle St. Aubert, whether a father, who had nearly lost his only son by the example of the Chevalier, has not, from conviction, reason to warn those, whom he esteems, against trusting their happiness in such hands. I have myself seen the Chevalier engaged in deep play with men, whom I almost shuddered to look upon. If you still doubt, I will refer you to my son.When the detective departed, my friend rose and made hispreparations for the days work with the alert air of a man who hasa congenial task before him.
When we descended I followed Holmes into the stable yard, where heopened the door of a loose-box and led out a squat, lop-eared,white-and-tan dog, something between a beagle and a foxhound.Let me introduce you to Pompey, said he. Pompey is the pride ofthe local draghounds- no very great flier, as his build will show, buta staunch hound on a scent. Well, Pompey, you may not be fast, but Iexpect you will be too fast for a couple of middle-aged Londongentlemen, so I will take the liberty of fastening this leatherleash to your collar. Now, boy, come along, and show what you can do.He led him across to the doctors door. The dog sniffed round for aninstant, and then with a shrill whine of excitement started off downthe street, tugging at his leash in his efforts to go faster. Inhalf an hour, we were clear of the town and hastening down a countryroad.With brother-spheres in choral song,And with his thunder-march sublime
About three days.She gave no reasons?
