To be cut off now from all ministration, all comforting- to have to lie there like a log, imagining the moment when the neighbours should come in and say, " It is all over- they have broken his neck- and buried him"- it was a doom beyond all even that her timid pessimist heart had ever dreamed.- "Marcella", Mrs. Humphry Ward.
