Ransome presented to his friend, the foreman, his mother and Miss Usher. And as if the foreman had not sufficiently divined her, Miss Usher's averted shoulders, burning cheeks, and lowered eyelids made it impossible for him to forget that she was the Lady whose approval was the ultimate condition of the deal. After an immensity of time, in which Mr.

And even the merchant who should voluntarily pay these duties, were denominated betrayers of English liberty, and public enemies. The doom, being locked, the gentleman usher of the house of lords, who was sent by the king, could not get admittance till this remonstrance was finished. The discontents of the nation ran high, on account of this violent rupture between the king and parliament.

Crabb was shown into a spacious chamber, on the third floor, furnished with a luxury to which the poor usher was quite unaccustomed. "Now, Hector, you can have a room to yourself, or you may share my den," said Walter. "I would rather share the den," said Hector. "That's what I hoped. You see, we shall have ever so much to say to each other. We haven't seen each other for over a year."

"During the whole of a dull, dark, and soundless day in the autumn of the year, when the clouds hung oppressively low in the heavens, I had been passing alone, on horseback, through a singularly dreary tract of country; and at length found myself, as the shades of the evening drew on, within view of the melancholy House of Usher.
