With the quickness of David at the switch, I slipped a blotting-pad over the dedication, and then, "Pray be seated," I said coldly, but she remained standing, all in a twitter and very much afraid of me, and I know that her hands were pressed together within the muff
I jumped up, took my muff
and umbrella, and hastened into the inn- passage: a man was standing by the open door, and in the lamp-lit street I dimly saw a one-horse conveyance.
I detected it all easily enough, being actually within six inches of her throbbing heart at that very moment, though concealed in the muff
And she tapped the old man on the head with her muff
She threw her muff
into a chair and a moment afterwards sank into it herself.
Hung from her neck by a chain of fine gold, was a large Chinchilla muff
Yes, horrid cold; but my muff
is so big, I won't carry it.
High-heeled boots tilted her well forward, a tiny muff
pinioned her arms, and a spotted veil, tied so closely over her face that her eyelashes were rumpled by it, gave the last touch of absurdity to her appearance.
Shoes and a muff
were given her; she was, too, dressed very nicely; and when she was about to set off, a new carriage stopped before the door.
Why, ma'am," answered Mrs Honour, "he came into the room one day last week when I was at work, and there lay your ladyship's muff
on a chair, and to be sure he put his hands into it; that very muff
your ladyship gave me but yesterday.
The beautiful head disappeared first, still buried in the muff
, the long trailing skirt followed.
I know the Misses Osborne were excellent critics of a Cashmere shawl, or a pink satin slip; and when Miss Turner had hers dyed purple, and made into a spencer; and when Miss Pickford had her ermine tippet twisted into a muff
and trimmings, I warrant you the changes did not escape the two intelligent young women before mentioned.
