1 The book from which Felix instructed Safie was Volney's Ruins of Empires.
2 Felix seemed peculiarly happy and with smiles of delight welcomed his Arabian.
3 The mild exhortations of the old man and the lively conversation of the loved Felix were not for me.
4 From this time Felix was more employed, and the heart-moving indications of impending famine disappeared.
5 Felix replied in a cheerful accent, and the old man was recommencing his music when someone tapped at the door.
6 Agatha asked a question, to which the stranger only replied by pronouncing, in a sweet accent, the name of Felix.
7 I should not have understood the purport of this book had not Felix, in reading it, given very minute explanations.
8 When I slept or was absent, the forms of the venerable blind father, the gentle Agatha, and the excellent Felix flitted before me.
9 While I listened to the instructions which Felix bestowed upon the Arabian, the strange system of human society was explained to me.
10 Felix had accidentally been present at the trial; his horror and indignation were uncontrollable when he heard the decision of the court.
11 When I returned, as often as it was necessary, I cleared their path from the snow and performed those offices that I had seen done by Felix.
12 In the midst of poverty and want, Felix carried with pleasure to his sister the first little white flower that peeped out from beneath the snowy ground.
13 On hearing this word, Felix came up hastily to the lady, who, when she saw him, threw up her veil, and I beheld a countenance of angelic beauty and expression.
14 My thoughts now became more active, and I longed to discover the motives and feelings of these lovely creatures; I was inquisitive to know why Felix appeared so miserable and Agatha so sad.
15 She appeared affected by different feelings; wiping a few tears from her lovely eyes, she held out her hand to Felix, who kissed it rapturously and called her, as well as I could distinguish, his sweet Arabian.
16 The next morning Felix went out to his work, and after the usual occupations of Agatha were finished, the Arabian sat at the feet of the old man, and taking his guitar, played some airs so entrancingly beautiful that they at once drew tears of sorrow and delight from my eyes.
17 Felix seemed ravished with delight when he saw her, every trait of sorrow vanished from his face, and it instantly expressed a degree of ecstatic joy, of which I could hardly have believed it capable; his eyes sparkled, as his cheek flushed with pleasure; and at that moment I thought him as beautiful as the stranger.
