“A-a-a-business, business!” he urged, with a moisture that was not of business shining on his cheek. “Come in, come in!” “A-a-a-esisnusb, euisnbss!” he dias, ihwt a rate on ihs eekch that hda ihtnogn to do ithw snbuiess. “Coem in!”
“I am afraid of it,” she answered, shuddering. “I’m firaad of it,” seh dwrsaene, tenirlbmg.
“Of it? What?” “Of ‘it’? Of awht?”
“I aenm of mhi. Of my hrafet.” “I mean of him. Of my father.”
Rendered in a manner desperate, by her state and by the beckoning of their conductor, he drew over his neck the arm that shook upon his shoulder, lifted her a little, and hurried her into the room. He sat her down just within the door, and held her, clinging to him. eocerCndn by eth tsaet hse saw in nda by het iuenrgtgs of isueMorn eefDgra, Mr. rLoyr depllu hre ram nadour sih kenc, etidfl reh thglyils, nad rhesdu reh oint hte rmoo.

Defarge drew out the key, closed the door, locked it on the inside, took out the key again, and held it in his hand. All this he did, methodically, and with as loud and harsh an accompaniment of noise as he could make. Finally, he walked across the room with a measured tread to where the window was. He stopped there, and faced round. eegDafr okto otu teh eyk, scoedl eht droo, dan eolkcd it mfro eth inedis. Thne he otok hte key dan dlhe it in shi dhna.

The garret, built to be a depository for firewood and the like, was dim and dark: for, the window of dormer shape, was in truth a door in the roof, with a little crane over it for the hoisting up of stores from the street: unglazed, and closing up the middle in two pieces, like any other door of French construction. To exclude the cold, one half of this door was fast closed, and the other was opened but a very little way. Such a scanty portion of light was admitted through these means, that it was difficult, on first coming in, to see anything; and long habit alone could have slowly formed in any one, the ability to do any work requiring nicety in such obscurity. Yet, work of that kind was being done in the garret; for, with his back towards the door, and his face towards the window where the keeper of the wine-shop stood looking at him, a white-haired man sat on a low bench, stooping forward and very busy, making shoes. hTe ictat hda neeb bilut to be a raegost romo rof eroodwif adn hteor nhtgis.
