Betty was tranquil enough till we got there, and heard that the count had gone on to Acquapendente with the two postillions at his heels; she seemed quite vexed. I told her that all would be well; that the count knew how to defend himself; but she only answered me with a deep sigh.

Trenchard fancied that he caught a sigh of relief from Richard, but the street was noisy at the time and he may well have been mistaken. "Come," said he, renewing his invitation, "we shall both be the better for a little milk of the White Cow." Richard wavered almost by instinct.

'He was a gentleman, every inch of him, he added, with a shake of the head and a sigh, as if recurring to more prosperous times. 'He was what a gentleman ought to be, he continued, 'not one of your poor, pryin', inquisitive critturs, what's always fancyin' themselves cheated.

With a sigh of disappointment she placed the tumbler upon the mantelpiece. "Where's Alf?" the old man asked. "Gone over to the General's to help about something." "Where's Guinea?"

When the officers come, they'll find a way to do the trick, never fear, Smithy. But how do you feel about taking a trip across to the camp right now?" Smithy started, and turned an anxious face out to the water, where the waves were still running fairly high, though the wind had died down. "I'm willing to do anything you say, Thad," he replied, with a sigh.
