"They've got both Mr Gaunt and little Percy; and, would you believe it, sir? the devils have actually been ill-treating the poor little fellow, just for the sake, seemingly, of tormenting his father." Henderson groaned aloud in sheer bitterness of spirit at hearing this. "It's awful, isn't it, sir?" continued Manners, grinding his teeth with rage.

From this point the outer arm of the cantilever extended far out over the broad chasm of the strait, where, a hundred and fifty feet beneath its unfloored level, the broken ice from the upper lake crashed and thundered on its wild passage of the strait. Blake looked down carelessly into the abyss of grinding, hurtling ice cakes.
