1 I thought perhaps you'd had some news from home.
2 Jo shook the tears off her cheeks and waited to hear the news.
3 I picked up a few bits of news and was introduced to the Professor.
4 My small news will sound very flat after her splendors, but you will like them, I know.
5 A salute of twenty-four guns was fired on receipt of good news from Washington, and a dress parade took place at headquarters.
6 It is impossible to tell you how happy your last letter made us, for the news was so good we couldn't help laughing and crying over it.
7 Much gratified, Jo rushed back to tell the good news, and Amy looked both touched and surprised by the report of May's word and manner.
8 Beth had a rapture with her mother, and then rushed up to impart the glorious news to her family of invalids, as the girls were not home.
9 Mr. and Mrs. March left the room with speed, and casting herself upon the bed, Jo cried and scolded tempestuously as she told the awful news to Beth and Amy.
10 I may get into a scrape for telling, but I didn't promise not to, so I will, for I never feel easy in my mind till I've told you any plummy bit of news I get.
11 "That's the interferingest chap I ever see, but I forgive him and do hope Mrs. March is coming right away," said Hannah, with an air of relief, when Jo told the good news.
12 And when he read his paper of an evening, Demi's colic got into the shipping list and Daisy's fall affected the price of stocks, for Mrs. Brooke was only interested in domestic news.
13 Pickwick, the president, read the paper, which was filled with original tales, poetry, local news, funny advertisements, and hints, in which they good-naturedly reminded each other of their faults and short comings.
14 It was a cheerful, hopeful letter, full of lively descriptions of camp life, marches, and military news, and only at the end did the writer's heart over-flow with fatherly love and longing for the little girls at home.
15 Feeling stronger than ever to meet and subdue her Apollyon, she pinned the note inside her frock, as a shield and a reminder, lest she be taken unaware, and proceeded to open her other letter, quite ready for either good or bad news.
16 The young lady herself received the news as tidings of great joy, went about in a solemn sort of rapture, and began to sort her colors and pack her pencils that evening, leaving such trifles as clothes, money, and passports to those less absorbed in visions of art than herself.
