The hideous thing that had put her far from him, and that had blurred the clear vision of her face, was gone. A smile soft and tender as a child's stole over his face, and with that smile he turned away. As they were coming back from the burn, Martin and the schoolmaster saw them in the distance. "Bless me, man, will you look at him?" said the master in an awestruck tone, clutching Martin's arm.

The London lights looked dim and blurred through the mist. As they drew near the wharf, Carrie jerked her head in the direction of the little ugly cluster of buildings which Max remembered so well. "There's a passage under there," she said in a whisper, leaning forward on her oar, "through which they let the dead body of the man you know out into the river. It's just near here."

Then steadying himself, he walked after Tom.
