Linsly was to be influenced in his favor he bad apply u to him for assistance not caring whether Ellen would be contented or not if he coulis Only succeed in his plans for self aggrandizement. The character disposition Anil habits of Edgar Hamblin were the reverse of that of trunk. He had in Early been left ail orphan with no one to direct him through the dangerous paths of . He had How Ever by strict attention to his studies and assiduous Industry acquired a Good education i and was now established As a lawyer in the 1 Village where or.

For old Jerry had told All who would listen to the Story of Frank s coming Back from his sex. Cur Sion alone. At last matters began to As sume a serious aspect. Edgar was nowhere to be had shebeen seen since he the Beach with Frank. And before the assistance of or.

He offered up a Short and fervent prayer to the author Kcf All Good and was about to consign himself to certain death when some thing appeared upon the water now it was borne aloft upon the top of a huge wave and then again was lost from his sight.

On it came rolling and whirling upon the mighty it was a stick of More wave and be grasped it with exultation for frail As was its support it afforded some Chance of escape and clinging to it As his last Hope he was driven out to sea. Chap Teit in. There s a divinity that shapes our ends rough hew them As we although Frank was vile enough to resort to almost any Means to accomplish his wishes still he had never thought or intended to commit murder. He had left Edgar on the Island intending to return before the flowing of the tide but where he Hart been Wai Ting he did not notice the rapid increase Waves nor bad he thought it was possible for the Island to be wholly immersed.
