Page 134 - You were right in that remark that you made last summer. I was booked to make a mistake. I have lived too long in foreign parts." Nevertheless, he went back to live at Geneva, whence there continue to come the most contradictory accounts of his motives of sojourn: a report that he is "studying" hard— an intimation that he is much interested in a very clever foreign lady.
Page 16 - Winterbourne mentally accused it — very forgivingly — of a want of finish. He thought it very possible that Master Randolph's sister was a coquette ; he was sure she had a spirit of her own ; but in her bright, sweet, superficial little visage there was no mockery, no irony. Before long it became obvious that she was much disposed towards conversation. She told him that they were going to Rome for the winter — she and her mother and Randolph. She asked him if he was a
Page 132 - Giovanelli was very pale ; on this occasion he had no flower in his button-hole ; he seemed to wish to say something. At last he said, " She was the most beautiful young lady I ever saw, and the most amiable." And then he added in a moment, " And she was the most innocent.

Page 128 - Daisy, in a little strange tone, " whether I have Roman fever or not!" Upon this the cab-driver cracked his whip, and they rolled away over the desultory patches of the antique pavement. Winterbourne, to do him justice, as it were, mentioned to no one that he had encountered Miss Miller, at midnight, in the Colosseum with a gentleman...

"I have more friends in New York than in Schenectady — more gentlemen friends; and more young lady friends too," she resumed in a moment. She paused again for an instant; she was looking at Winterbourne with all her prettiness in her lively eyes and in her light, slightly monotonous smile.
