Σελίδα 242 - Israel, Fear not : for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name ; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee ; . and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee : when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned ; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the Lord thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour...
Σελίδα 234 - Jenny returned from the inn she had much to tell about him, and also about the landlady. This woman had found out that her guest had an empty pocket, and Jenny could not deny that she had brought him some money. So Jenny had to listen to a long sermon upon the folly of giving, when one has nothing himself, and the danger of helping vagrants, when one has not the wherewithal to clothe his own children. "The shirt is nearer than the coat.
Σελίδα 260 - Jenny appeared unusually serious. She cast a sad look at Fleetman, and asked " And you — will you also appear ?" This was said in that tone peculiarly soft, yet very penetrating, which I have seldom observed in her, and only upon rare occasions, and at the most serious moments. Poor Fleetman himself trembled at her tone, so like the voice of the angel of doom. He looked up to her with an earnest gaze, and appeared to struggle with himself for an answer, and then advancing towards her a step, he...
Σελίδα 250 - In the top were two smoothly-cut round holes. With Jenny's help, I opened the box very cautiously, as I had been directed to handle the contents carefully. A fine white cloth was removed and lo! but no, our astonishment is indescribable. We all exclaimed, with one voice, 'Good God.
Σελίδα 228 - Venetians made him, the two diamond rings, the two watches set with brilliants, the pistols inlaid with gold, the costly carpets, the rich housings, and the 20,000 sequins in cash. Jenny says we 'must save the cloak in eatables.
Σελίδα 244 - I see now very plainly that the jail is inevitable. I am very weak and in vain do I exert myself to practise my old heroism. Even strength fails me for fervent prayer. My distress is too much for me. Yes, the jail is unavoidable. I will say it to myself plainly, that I may become accustomed to the prospect. The All-merciful have mercy on my dear children ! I may not — I cannot tell them. Perhaps a speedy death will save me from the disgrace.
Σελίδα 258 - Trowbridge has turned out beyond all expectation. I arrived late with weary feet at the pleasant little old city, and could not rouse myself from sleep until late the next morning. After I had put on my clean clothes (I had not been so finely dressed since my wedding-day — the good Jenny shows a daughter's care for her father,) I left the inn and went to Mr. Withell's. He lives in a splendid, great house. He received me somewhat coldly at first ; but when I mentioned my name, he led me into his...
Σελίδα 244 - Some hours after. — Already I feel more composed. I would have thrown myself into the arms of God, and prayed. But I was not well. I lay down on my bed. I believe I have slept; perhaps also I fainted. Some three hours have passed. My daughters have covered my feet with pillows. I am weak in body, but my heart is again fresh. Everything which has happened, which I have heard, flits before me like a dream.
Σελίδα 258 - ... daughter's care for her father), I left the inn and went to Mr Withell's. He lives in a splendid great house. He received me somewhat coldly at first ; but when I mentioned my name, he led me into his little office. Here I thanked him for his great goodness and consideration, told him how I had happened to give the bond, and what hard fortunes had hitherto been mine. I then laid my £12 upon the table.
Σελίδα 255 - ... went to him immediately at the inn. He is an agreeable man, and very polite. He informed me that he was appointed my successor in office ; that he wished, if I had no objections, to enter immediately upon his duties, and that I might occupy the parsonage until Easter ; he would, in the meanwhile, take up his abode in lodgings prepared for him at Alderman Fieldson's. I replied that, if he pleased, I would resign my office to him immediately, as I should thus be more at liberty to look out for...
