132 psl. - Suddenly, he signed to have the letter picked up from the ground ; tore it open the moment it was given to him ; and began to try to read the contents. The letter was short, and written in very blotted unsteady characters. It ran thus: — " Dearest Grandfather, — I never left you before in my life ; and I only go now to try and serve you, and do you good. In three days, or sooner, if God pleases, I will come back, bringing something with me that will gladden your heart, and make you love me even...
57 psl. - Shakspoare, in that place, and at that time. If the door hadn't been locked, I think I should have run out of the church ; but I couldn't do that; so I knelt down and kissed the grave-stone — a curious fancy coming over me as I did so, that it was like wishing Shakspeare good night — and then I groped my way back to the vestry. When I got in, and had shut the door between me and the grave, I grew bolder, I can tell you ; and thought to myself — I'm doing no harm; I'm not going to hurt the bust...
90 psl. - I'll tell you how it was, sir," continued the Squire. " In the first place, Daubeny Daker's a canting sneak- — a sort of fellow who goes into poor people's cottages, asking what they've got for dinner, and when they tell him, he takes the cover off the saucepan and sniffs at it, to make sure that they've spoken the truth.

Soon, his lips moved ; but his voice was so faint, that the doctor was obliged to listen close at his mouth to hear him. He said, in fluttering accents, that he had had a dreadful dream, which had made him very ill, he was afraid ; but that it was all over, and he was better now, though not quite strong enough to...
52 psl. - ... looked at it, like other people, just as a curiosity — / looked at it, as the greatest treasure in the world ; the only true likeness of Shakspeare ! It's been done from a mask, taken from his own face, after death — I know it : I don't care what people say, I know it. Well, when we went home, I felt as if I'd seen Shakspeare himself, risen from the dead ! Strangers would laugh if I told them so ; but it's true — I did feel it. And this thought came across me, quick, like the shooting of...
27 psl. - ... associated with William Shakspeare ! And why not ? What is Shakspeare but a great sun that shines upon humanity — the large heads and the little, alike ? Have not the rays of that mighty light penetrated into many poor and lowly places for good...
161 psl. - I'm happy. You'll soon he strong enough, my good friend, to take the cast yourself." "I hope so," said Mr. Wray. "It's very odd that a mere dream should make me feel so weak as I do — I suppose they told you, sir, what a horrible dream it was. If I didn't see the mask hanging up there now, as whole as ever, I should really believe it had been broken to pieces, just as I dreamt it.
