The anxious eyes of Josephine, from the moment they lost sight of her husband, had been turned towards her son ; and, for the first time in her life, she felt her heart a prey to divided affections ; for, while the frantic wildness of Siegendorf almost irresistibly impelled her to follow him, she was yet alive to all the danger of leaving Conrad a prey to reflections hostile to every sentiment of filial duty or respect. The latter,...

الصفحة 163 - Count, be short,' he added, again glancing towards Conrad, ' and be the future at your peril no less than mine ! Where shall I remain?' ' ' Siegendorf opened a door that admitted to one turret of the castle, of which he knew all other egress was barred ; the Hungarian started, and his presence of mind evidently failed him. He looked around with the air of a man who is conscious that, relying on a sanguine hope, he has ventured too far, and neither knows how to stand his ground nor to recede ; yet...

Josephine spoke not: there was an oppression at her heart that robbed her of the power. Conrad covered his face with his hand, and reclined it for a moment on her shoulder. ** Explain to me," said he, after a second pause.
الصفحة 73 - Two strangers, who had but lately gained the shore, were witnesses of the scene, and, perceiving the danger to be imminent, plunged, with some hazard to themselves, into the water. The last effort of the baron, on perceiving his situation, was to open the carriage door, and attempt to throw himself out.
