The information as to the manner and particulars of his death I learned from Mr. Voorhies, who reported it to me as he had heard it in the streets.

Maura, contrary to her wont, was unusually silent during the whole morning; but Felix could perceive that she watched all his emotions with the eye of a lynx. When the hour of going to chapel approached, he deemed it time to dress, and, for that purpose, went to a large oaken tallboy that stood in the kitchen, in order to get out his clothes.

In the first shock, I will not trust myself to say more, until after consultation with my brother; but you shall hear from me again respecting your sisters. I remain, your obedient servant, R. M.
