[The Dead] [7393] The table burst into applause and laughter at this allusion. Aunt
[The Dead] [7399] Aunt Julia did not understand but she looked up, smiling, at

[The Dead] [7471] Mary Jane laughed at her tone.
[The Dead] [7484] At that moment the hall-door was opened and Mr. Browne came in

[The Dead] [8076] "I was great with him at that time," she said.
[The Dead] [8086] A vague terror seized Gabriel at this answer, as if, at that hour
