[Clay] [3370] was a great shame for him to speak that way of his own flesh and

[A Painful Case] [3553] nature open to the full: she became his confessor. He told her that

[The Dead] [7932] Gabriel in a false voice. "He gave me back that sovereign I lent
[The Dead] [7934] from that Browne, because he's not a bad fellow, really."

[The Dead] [8086] A vague terror seized Gabriel at this answer, as if, at that hour
[The Dead] [8091] again, for he felt that she would tell him of herself. Her hand was
[The Dead] [8093] to caress it just as he had caressed her first letter to him that spring
