Excerpt: ... Ruth. And what of them, that thou should'st look so grave? Hugh. I fear she loves him. Ruth. Well, I fear she does; But love will never kill her; she's as light Of spirit as of step. Hugh. T'was natural--Brought up together from their infancy, That love should grow between them. But dost think There has been courtship 'twixt him and the maid? Ruth. Well!

Men oftener pride themselves On gifts they have not than on gifts they have; Thus is he prouder of his lost estate Than if he swayed his father's heritage, And lorded it o'er Skipton's princely towers. Dame! I've a dreadful thought,--Could I...
