The day had been hot and rainy an oppressive scirocco day and the boy was languid and out of sorts. The nurse advised his being carried up early to bed, and Buntingford had arrived just in time. When he came downstairs again, he found Cynthia in a garden hat, and they strolled out to look at the water-garden which was the common hobby of both the sisters.

My duke oh, don't talk of him. Dear man! he's in bed and fast asleep long before this. I wonder how he came to let me come here. I did bother him, I know.

I wouldn't like to leave you alone. You know how bad your cough is sometimes." "I'll do well enough through the day, Ellen," replied Margaret, though her feeble voice and languid manner told too plainly that she could not do very well at any time. "You know that our rent will be due in two weeks, and that you haven't yet got enough to pay it." "That is very true," said Ellen, somewhat sadly.

What was this dark history never came out, but its very mystery always thrilled the visitor, and seemed to indicate plainly the respectability of the hostess.

Willis had his languid affectations, his superficial cynicism and added to them ostentatious sentimentality. Does anybody read William Gilmore Simm's elaborate rhetoric disguised as novels?
