1 They came limping and hanging their heads; and we set out for home, sadly out of sorts, every one of us.
2 Her features were so sad, they did not seem hers: she evidently regarded what she had heard as every syllable true.
3 She went sadly on: there was no running or bounding now, though the chill wind might well have tempted her to race.
4 I felt stunned by the awful event; and my memory unavoidably recurred to former times with a sort of oppressive sadness.
5 But, I thought in my mind, Hindley, with apparently the stronger head, has shown himself sadly the worse and the weaker man.
6 I do not know whether it was sorrow for him, but his cousin put on as sad a countenance as himself, and returned to her father.
7 It was very, very sad: and while I read I sighed, for it seemed as if all joy had vanished from the world, never to be restored.
8 Next day it all came out, sadly to my chagrin; and still I was not altogether sorry: I thought the burden of directing and warning would be more efficiently borne by him than me.
