'And I don't think, Mrs. Yeander, said the curate, for the third time, 'that Miss Violetta is at all like her mother. 'She's young yet, sir, said the woman.

And Violetta speedily had the honour of an introduction, very solemnly gone through, in due form; Ermine, in the languid sportiveness of enjoyment of his presence and his kindness to the child, inciting Rose to present Miss Violetta Williams to Colonel Keith, an introduction that he returned with a grand military salute, at the same time as he shook the doll's inseparable fingers.

The adorable Patti!... Linda, Violetta, Lucia. Lord, what a nightingale she had been! He laughed laid the photograph on the desk, and dipped his hand into a canvas bag filled with polished green stones which would have great commercial value if people knew more about them; for nothing else in the world is quite so beautifully green.

A woman such as Violetta d'Isorella was of the sort from which Laura shrank with all her feminine power of loathing; but she spoke of her with some effort at personal tolerance until she heard of Violetta's stipulation for the deferring of Carlo's marriage, and contrived to guess that Carlo was reserved and unfamiliar with his betrothed.

Why should I be less generous than my preserver?

A person downstairs, he said; not Count Ammiani; not signor Balderini; no one whom he saw present, no one whom he knew. "A very mysterious person," said the duchess. "Then it's true after all," cried Laura. "I did but guess it." She assured Violetta that she had only guessed it.
