At friendly meetings, and when the wine was to his taste, something eminently human beaconed from his eye; something indeed which never found its way into his talk, but which spoke not only in these silent symbols of the after -dinner face, but more often and loudly in the acts of his life.
He was austere with himself; drank gin when he was alone, to mortify a taste for vintages; and though he enjoyed the theatre, had not crossed the doors of one for twenty years. But he had an approved tolerance for others; sometimes wondering, almost with envy, at the high pressure of spirits invo lved in their misdeeds; and in any extremity inclined to help rather than descargar romanticamente de shadow blow reprove.
And to such as these, so lo ng as they came about his chambers, he never marked a shade of change in his demeanour. No doubt the feat was easy to Mr.
Utterson; for he was undemonstrative at the best, and even his friendship s eemed to be founded in a similar catholicity of good-nature.
It is the mark of a modest man descargar romanticamente de shadow blow accept descargar romanticamente de shadow blow friendly circle ready. His friends were those of his own blood or those whom he had known the longest; his affections, like ivywere the growth of time, they implied no aptness in the object.
Hence, no doubt, the bond that united him to Descargar romanticamente de shadow blow. Richard Enfield, his distant kinsmanthe well-known man about town. It was a nut to crack for many, what these two could see in each other, or what subject they could find in common. It was reported by those who en countered them in their Sunday walks, that they said nothing, looked singularly dull, and would hail with obvious relief the appearance of a friend.
Descargar romanticamente de shadow blow all that, the two men put the greatest store by these excursions, counted them the chief jewel of each week, and not only set aside occasions of pleasure, but even resisted the calls of business, that they might enjoy them uninterrupted. It chanced on one of these rambles that their way led them down a by-street in a busy quarter of London.
The street was small and what is called quiet, but it drove a thriving trade on the week-days. The inhabitants were all doing well, it seemed, and all emulously hoping to do better still, and laying out the surplus of their gains in coquetry ; so that the shop fronts stood along that thoroughfare with an air of invitation, like rows of smiling saleswomen.
Even on Sunday, when it veiled its more florid charms and lay comparatively empty of passage, the street shone out in contrast to its dingy neighbourhood, like a fire in a forest; and with its freshly painted shutterswell-polished brasses, and general cleanliness and gaiety of note, instantly caught and pleased the eye of the passenger.
Two doors from one corner, on the left hand going east, the line was broken by the entry of a court; and just at that point, a certain sinister block of building thrust forward its gable on the street.
It was two stories high; showed no window, nothing but a door on the lower story and a blind forehead of discoloured wall on the upper; and bore in every feature, the marks of prolonged and sordid negligence. The door, which was equipped with neither bell nor knockerwas blistered and distained. Descargar romanticamente de shadow blow slouched into the recess and struck matches on the panels; children kept shop upon the steps; the.
Enfield and the lawyer were on the other side of the bystreet ; but when they came abreast of the entry, the former lifted up his cane and pointed. Utterson, with a slight change of voice, "and what was that? Street after street, and all the folks asleep -- street after street, all lighted up as if for a procession and all as empty as a church -- till at last I got into that state of mind when a man listens and listens and begins to long for the sight of a policeman.
All at once, I sa w two figures: one a little man who was stumping along eastward at a good walk, and the other a girl of maybe eight or ten who was running as hard as she was able down a cross street.
It sounds nothing to hear, but it was hellish to see. I gave a view-halloa, took to my heelscollared my gentleman, and brought him back to where there was already quite a group about the screaming child. He was perfectly cool and made no resist ance, but gave me one look, so ugly that it brought out the sweat on me like running.
Well, the child was not much the worse, more frightenedaccording to the Sawbones; and there you might have supposed would be an end to it. But there was one curious circumstance. I had taken a loathing to my. He was the usual cut-and-dry apothecaryof no particular age and colour, with a strong Edinburgh accentand about as emotional as a bagpipe. Well, sir, he was like the rest of us; every time he looked at my prisonerI saw that Sawbones turn sick and white with the desire to kill him.
I knew what was in his mind, just as he knew what was in mine; and killing being out of the question, we did the descargar romanticamente de shadow blow best. We told the man we could and would make such a scandal descargar romanticamente de shadow blow of this, as should make his name stink from one end of London to the other. If he had any friends or any credit, we undertook that he should lose them.
And all the time, as we were pitching it in red hot, we were keeping the women off him as best we could, for they were as wild as harpies.
I never saw a circle of such hateful faces; and there was the man in the middle, with a kind of black, sneering coolness -- frightened too, I could see that -- but carrying it off, sir, really like Satan.
The next thing was to get the money; and where do you think he carried descargar romanticamente de shadow blow but to that place with the door? The figure was stiff ; but the signature was good for more than that, if it was only genuine. But he was quite easy and sneering. Not a bit of it. The cheque was genuine. Enfi eld. For my man was a fellow that nobody could have to do with, a really damnable man; and the person that drew the cheque is the very pink of the proprieties, celebrated too, and what makes it worse one of your fellows who do what they call good.
Black-mail, I suppose; an honest man paying through the nose for some of the capers of his youth. Black-Mail House is what I call that place with the door, in consequence. Though even that, you know, is far from explaining all," he added, and with the words fell into a vein of musing.
From this he was recalled by Mr. You sit quietly on the top of a hill; and away the stone goes, starting others; and presently some bland old bird the last you would have thought of is knocked on the head in his own back-garden and the family have to change their name. No, sir, I make it a rule of mine: the more it looks like Queer Street, the less I ask. There is no other door, and nobody goes in or out of that one but, once in a great while, the gentleman of my adventure. And then there is a chimney which is descargar romanticamente de shadow blow smoking ; so somebody must live there.
The pair walked on again for a while in silence; and then, "Enfield," said Mr. It was a man of the name of Hyde. There is something wrong with his appearance; something displeasingsomething downright detestable. I never saw a man I so dislikedand yet I scarce know why. Utterson again walked some way in silence and obviously under a weight of consideration. The fact is, if I do not ask you the name of the other party, it is because I know it already.
You see, Richard, your tale has gone home. If you have been inexact in any point, you had better correct it. I saw him use it, not a week ago. Utterson sighed deeply but said never a descargar romanticamente de shadow blow ; and the young man presently resumed. Let us make a bargain never to refer to this again. THAT evening Mr. Utterson came home to his bachelor house in sombre spirits and sat down to dinner without relish.
It was his custom of a Sunday, when this meal was over, to sit close by the fire, a volume of some dry divinity on his reading-desk, until the descargar romanticamente de shadow blow of the neighbouring church rang out the hour of twelve, when he would go soberly and gratefully to bed.
On this night, however, as soon as the cloth was taken away, he took up a candle and went into his business-room. There he opened his safe, took from the most private part of it a document endorsed on the envelope as Dr. The will was holographfor Mr. Utterson, though descargar romanticamente de shadow blow took charge of it now that it was made, had refused to lend the least assistance in the making of it; it provided not only that, in case of the decease of Henry Jekyll, M.
It offended him both as a lawyer and as a lover of the sane and customary sides of life, to whom the fanciful was the immodest. And hitherto it was his ignorance of Mr. It was already bad enough when the na me was but a name of which he could learn no more. It was worse when it began to be clothed upon with detestable attributes ; and descargar romanticamente de shadow blow of the shiftinginsubstantial mists that had so long baffled his eye, there leaped up the sudden, definite presentment of a fiend.
With that he blew out his candle, put on a great -coat, and set forth in the direction of Cavend ish Square, that citadel of medicine, where his friend, the great Dr. Lanyon, had his house and received his crowding patients. The solemn butler knew and welcomed him; he was subjected to no stage of delay, but ushered direct from the door to the dining -room where Dr. Lanyon sat alone over his wine.
