1 By her side stood a tall, thin man, clad in black.
2 It was odd to notice that by common consent we had all put on black clothes.
3 To my left the view is cut off by a black line of roof of the old house next the abbey.
4 All the framework was black with time, and from the iron the paint had mostly scaled away.
5 That he be all in black, except that he have a hat of straw which suit not him or the time.
6 There was undoubtedly something, long and black, bending over the half-reclining white figure.
7 Of course, Arthur wore black, for he was in deep mourning, but the rest of us wore it by instinct.
8 I sympathise with poor Desdemona when she had such a dangerous stream poured in her ear, even by a black man.
9 They wore high boots, with their trousers tucked into them, and had long black hair and heavy black moustaches.
10 All was dark and silent, the black shadows thrown by the moonlight seeming full of a silent mystery of their own.
11 They were driven by a tall man, with a long brown beard and a great black hat, which seemed to hide his face from us.
12 Van Helsing, instead of his little black bag, had with him a long leather one, something like a cricketing bag; it was manifestly of fair weight.
13 He, poor fellow, must have one hour that will make the very face of heaven grow black to him; then we can act for good all round and send him peace.
14 There was a bright full moon, with heavy black, driving clouds, which threw the whole scene into a fleeting diorama of light and shade as they sailed across.
15 Within, stood a tall old man, clean shaven save for a long white moustache, and clad in black from head to foot, without a single speck of colour about him anywhere.
16 As he did so the narrow black velvet band which she seems always to wear round her throat, buckled with an old diamond buckle which her lover had given her, was dragged a little up, and showed a red mark on her throat.
17 He was very pale, and his eyes seemed bulging out as, half in terror and half in amazement, he gazed at a tall, thin man, with a beaky nose and black moustache and pointed beard, who was also observing the pretty girl.
18 Suddenly the horror burst upon me that it was thus that Jonathan had seen those awful women growing into reality though the whirling mist in the moonlight, and in my dream I must have fainted, for all became black darkness.
19 Suddenly, I became conscious of the fact that the driver was in the act of pulling up the horses in the courtyard of a vast ruined castle, from whose tall black windows came no ray of light, and whose broken battlements showed a jagged line against the moonlit sky.
20 I could not see any cause for it, for the howling of the wolves had ceased altogether; but just then the moon, sailing through the black clouds, appeared behind the jagged crest of a beetling, pine-clad rock, and by its light I saw around us a ring of wolves, with white teeth and lolling red tongues, with long, sinewy limbs and shaggy hair.
