- On such occasions the heart trusts not to the tongues feeble utterance, but, rushing to the countenance, there delineates its emotion in a language without words. Such was the scene at the rectory of Hanworth: its worthy incumbent had heard with resignation the opinion of his physician, that no human means could save him. Mortification had advanced almost to its last stage. Yet, though he felt no pangs of guilt, no dread of future worlds, though perfectly resigned to die, there were attractions, whose resistless force still held his wishes for a longer life.

Around that couch, from which he never was to rise, knelt objects that had awakened in his breast, the finest feelings of a husband, father, friend.The amiable woman, who at an early age had given him her hand, and with it the worthiest of hearts, too deeply afflicted to weep, gazed alternately on her expiring husband, and on those who were so soon to be the orphan pledges of his love, with the soul-piercing wildness of despair.Their son, a youth of sixteen, held his fathers hand clasped firmly betwixt both his own, and beat his face over it to conceal his tears.A daughter, somewhat younger, with tears and swelling sighs, mingled ejaculations to the Deity to spare a life so dear.Leaning his head against the foot-post of the bed stood Dr.

Hill, tho benevolent friend and skilful physician of the rector, whose serene countenance he appeared contemplating with pleasure.I could have wished he had arrived-I should have retired from the scenes of this life with less regret, had I committed these my only cares to his kind keeping, faintly uttered Mr. Barnwell. But his own good heart, continued he, will suggest to him all I could have said.It was his brother to whom he alluded, who entered the room as he was speaking. His appearance changed the scene. His appearance changed the scene.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
