Mistress Nancy free pdf Excerpt from Mistress Nancy: A Drama in Four Acts [Scene. - Library of "The Oaks," in Roxburghshire, Scotland.] Burton. I say, Anna, I don't like it. All night long an owl hooted in the old oak planted by the master's grandfather. It's a warning of death in this family that I never knew to fail. Anna. If the Squire hadn't fainted after returning from the long ride yesterday, you'd never have given the hooting of an owl a thought. Burton. Why, Anna, you've often heard the old folks hereabouts tell how an owl hooted the night before the Squire's father was killed by his horse falling and crushing him. Mother has told me time and again how the night before the old Squire, the master's grandfather, was murdered in a duel, that no one could sleep in the house, because of the owl's call in the young oak he had planted when a child. The old oak, now, I mean. Anna. Don't be a fool, Burton. You give as much heed to omens and signs of bad luck as a fisherman's wife. Hush! Here comes Mistress Nancy, and you must not fill her mind with your gloomy forebodings. Your idle talk might make her exceedingly unhappy, for she dotes upon her Daddy, though there's no blood tie between them. Burton. Who said anything about the Squire dying? I would not utter a word to worry the sweet lass, but that there's trouble hanging over this household I can be sworn. (Enter Nancy Worthington) (Nancy speaks as she approaches front.) Hasn't Dad risen yet? Anna, I was dreadfully frightened last night when he swooned. I am not entirely over the fright yet, although. Burton, you told me, nearly half an hour ago, that Daddy would join me here presently. I don't remember that I ever before sat a meal through by myself. I was so doleful and unhappy that I could scarcely break my fast. Anna. Don't brood upon trouble before it comes. My dear girl, it comes to us all soon enough without our running to meet it. Nancy. But Daddy has talked to me recently about such dreadful things, about dying, and - Burton, you may retire. (Exit Burton.) Anna, I do not remember my mother. Try as I may, I cannot recall her to memory. I was not quite three years old when she died. I have only a faint recollection of my father, merely such an impression as would be made on the mind of a child of tender age. It seems that all my life has been lived at the Oaks with Daddy and you. The only mother I have ever known has been you, and I cling to you for sympathy and womanly love. Anna. Don't cry, my darling. I promise you that I will always, as best I can, stand between you and unhappiness. Nancy. You need not tell me how you love me. You have ever been kind and tender with me. But tell me of Laurence Barrington You know that to-day he will visit the Oaks. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
