"Dolly in the meanwhile turned to the corners of her apron, and measured the sides and smoothed out the wrinkles, and was as silent as he. At last, after a long pause, Joe said good-bye. 'Good-bye,' said Dolly, with as pleasant a smile if he were going to the next street, and were coming back to supper. 'Good-bye.' 'Come,' said Joe, putting out both his hands, 'Dolly, dear Dolly, don't let us part like this. I love you dearly, with all my heart and soul, with as much truth and earnestness as ever man loved woman in this world, I do believe. . . . Dolly, dearest, have you nothing to say to me*' No, nothing. Dolly was a coquette by nature and a spoilt child. She had no notion of being carried away by storm in this way. 'I have said good-bye,' said Dolly, 'twice. Take your arm away directly, Mr. Joseph, or I'll call Miggs.' 'I'll not reproach you,' answered Joe; 'It's my fault, no doubt. I have thought sometimes you didn't quite despise me; but I was a fool to think so. Every one must who has seen the life I have led--you most of all. God bless you.' He was gone, actually gone."--Barnaby Rudge. [Pp. 12-13; ellipses appear in the catalogue.]
