But I had no time for any further observation, for a voice said, 'What are you barking at, Jenny? and the next moment Eric entered the room. He started when he saw me caressing the dog. 'I beg your pardon for this intrusion, I began nervously, for I saw I was not recognised; 'but I have followed you from Heathfield to tell you the good news. Mr.
Sometimes a whole godly sentence was adopted as a name. Here are the names of a jury said to be enclosed in the county of Sussex about that time: Accepted, Trevor of Norsham. Redeemed, Compton of Battle. Faint not, Hewit of Heathfield. Make Peace, Heaton of Hare. God Reward, Smart of Fivehurst. Standfast on High, Stringer of Crowhurst. Earth, Adams of Warbleton. Called, Lower of the same.
In itself it contains nothing remarkable, but closely adjoining are one or two of those charming old red-brick mansions which make Hampstead what it is. Heathfield House, Squires Mount, and The Pryors are specimens of these. On the south side is Cannon Hall, an old Queen Anne mansion.
It was evident to him that the young people had not realised their thoroughly destitute condition. Whatever property their poor father might have had must have been lost in the Mountaineer. "However," he thought to himself, "if the brother's heart cannot be moved to take care of the orphans, perhaps this Mr Tom Heathfield or Lord Heatherly will do so.

'You have never liked Hyde Park Gate, Ursula, she said, very kindly; 'and we shall all be glad to escape London fogs this year: your uncle will not mind the expense, and I think the plan will suit admirably.
"Well, come now," said Jackdaw, pulling her by one arm while Peterkin secured the other. "You've had your share of her, Merry, and it's our turn." Maggie and her devoted satellites went off in the direction where the bonfire was to be made; and Merry, walking slowly, joined Susan Heathfield.
The county abounds in ironstone, which is contained in the sandstone beds of the Forest ridge, lying between the chalk and oolite of the district, called by geologists the Hastings sand.
