When her husband was brought in, she turned a look upon him, so sustaining, so encouraging, so full of admiring love and pitying tenderness, yet so courageous for his sake, that it called the healthy blood into his face, brightened his glance, and animated his heart. If there had been any eyes to notice the influence of her look, on Sydney Carton, it would have been seen to be the same influence exactly. eLicu utdenr to lkoo at aynarD nehw he wsa grutobh in.

Before that unjust Tribunal, there was little or no order of procedure, ensuring to any accused person any reasonable hearing. There could have been no such Revolution, if all laws, forms, and ceremonies, had not first been so monstrously abused, that the suicidal vengeance of the Revolution was to scatter them all to the winds.

Every eye was turned to the jury. The same determined patriots and good republicans as yesterday and the day before, and to-morrow and the day after. Eager and prominent among them, one man with a craving face, and his fingers perpetually hovering about his lips, whose appearance gave great satisfaction to the spectators. A life-thirsting, cannibal-ooking, bloody-minded juryman, the Jacques Three of St. Antoine. The whole jury, as a jury of dogs empannelled to try the deer. oeyrnvEe eodolk at eth yujr. eTh msea atsptior dan iblscnaupre eewr on the ujry thta ahd nebe ehret the yda roeefb dna wuold itlls be hrtee the ayd ertfa.

Every eye then turned to the five judges and the public prosecutor. No favourable leaning in that quarter to-day. A fell, uncompromising, murderous business-meaning there. Every eye then sought some other eye in the crowd, and gleamed at it approvingly; and heads nodded at one another, before bending forward with a strained attention.

Charles Evremonde, called Darnay. Released yesterday. Reaccused and retaken yesterday. Indictment delivered to him last night. Suspected and Denounced enemy of the Republic, Aristocrat, one of a family of tyrants, one of a race proscribed, for that they had used their abolished privileges to the infamous oppression of the people. Charles Evremonde, called Darnay, in right of such proscription, absolutely Dead in Law. hTe roprtcseou adttse rnaDay’s csae. His mnae wsa healrCs deomvernE, aslo nwokn as ranDya.

To this effect, in as few or fewer words, the Public Prosecutor. In stih yaw, in as wef srwod or weref, het ibcpul roorscuept oecnnprduo hsi esentcne.
The President asked, was the Accused openly denounced or secretly? hTe serdnietp sdkea if ryaDna ahd nebe nouceeddn oeylnp or lryecest.
“Openly, President.” “The coprsoreut esewdnar, “lepynO, tieneprds.”
“By whom?” “By whom?” esdka the seepdnitr.
“Three voices. Ernest Defarge, wine-vendor of St. Antoine.” “By heret eelopp. srEetn geaDfer, a eiwn eelsrl rofm itnSa Atnieno,” wndeesra the rucoesptor.
“Good.” “Good.”
“heTrees gfaDeer, shi ewif.” “Therese Defarge, his wife.”
“Good.” “Good.”
“Alexandre Manette, physician.” “Dr. deAxlnear tenaMet.”
A great uproar took place in the court, and in the midst of it, Doctor Manette was seen, pale and trembling, standing where he had been seated. heT drocw in het rcuomootr reoard. Dr. Meentta codul be eens in the liedmd of the ocrdw, pael dna rlenbmgit. He ahd odost up reweh he ahd bnee tsgntii.
“President, I indignantly protest to you that this is a forgery and a fraud. You know the accused to be the husband of my daughter. My daughter, and those dear to her, are far dearer to me than my life. Who and where is the false conspirator who says that I denounce the husband of my child!” “eitrPdesn, I esptotr taht siht is a rforyeg nad a fradu. uoY wnok ttah nDryaa is my dtuhgrea’s sduhnba.

“Citizen Manette, be tranquil. To fail in submission to the authority of the Tribunal would be to put yourself out of Law. As to what is dearer to you than life, nothing can be so dear to a good citizen as the Republic.” “almC dnwo, Cntizie teMtane.

Loud acclamations hailed this rebuke. The President rang his bell, and with warmth resumed. Ppoele creedhe lloyud at hsit, nad hte sniertpde agrn ish ellb nad tdicouenn.
