My cousin and the lady in whose charge she is came up with me on Thursday, and will be leaving town the end of next week, and I should wish to escort them about while here. I will come on Monday morning ready for work. How had I better be dressed?" "I should say as a countryman.

It was Henry, and he was coming on swift foot. In an instant he was before them, and Paul knew by his look that he had news. "They are waiting?" said Paul. "Yes," replied Henry. "They are in the thickets at the ford, less than two miles ahead." Daniel Poe shuddered again for the five hundred lives in his charge and then his heart rose.

I don't know whether he began to think he might like the child, or whether he wished to make sure that it should never fall into its mother's hands; but, before he went, he intrusted me with the charge of bringing it home.

He told a gentleman, belonging to this depot, that he never saw, nor ever read, or heard of such a set of Devil-daring, God-provoking fellows, as these same Yankees. And he added, I had rather have the charge of five thousand Frenchmen, than FIVE HUNDRED of these sons of liberty; and yet, said he, I love the dogs better than I do the damn'd frog-eaters.

In an irritating tone he intimated that Douglas himself had changed his position on the question of submission, alluding to certain private conferences at Douglas's house; but as though bound by a pledge of secrecy, Bigler refrained from making the charge in so many words.

There was but one way in which Diane could have put herself right with him: she could have swept the charge aside, with a serene contemptuousness of denial.
