"She's at school in Scarborough, and I didn't see her; but I hear she's a fine bouncing lass. I had a very pleasant day with the Hallidays. Tom has sold his farm; that part of the world doesn't suit him, it seems too cold and bleak for him. He's one of those big burly-looking men who seem as if they could knock you down with a little finger, and who shiver at every puff of wind.
Spies!" came from the mob, and the men on the step gladly obeyed the order to go upstairs, and rushed into the house. "Shall we fetch 'em out, sir," cried a big, burly-looking fellow, "and take and pitch 'em in the river?" "No; leave the miserable wretches alone," said the boy haughtily. "Don't touch them, if they go quietly away."
The skipper, a burly-looking man with an enormous black beard, was uproariously drunk, but not quite so intoxicated that he could not see the business side of a bargain.

And a burly-looking fellow, walking up and down the stage with an air that gave the lie to every assertion of the interpreter, made a speech in deep gutturals to the great delight of the listeners.
Between-times I saw all the engravings prepared after his sketches, and I regarded him and them with a kind of childish reverence.
