1 Two years after this event Caroline became his wife.
2 My wife and my sister will never recover from their horror.
3 You, perhaps, regard her as your sister, without any wish that she might become your wife.
4 I escaped from them to the room where lay the body of Elizabeth, my love, my wife, so lately living, so dear, so worthy.
5 She found a peasant and his wife, hard working, bent down by care and labour, distributing a scanty meal to five hungry babes.
6 A grin was on the face of the monster; he seemed to jeer, as with his fiendish finger he pointed towards the corpse of my wife.
7 She was a hired nurse, the wife of one of the turnkeys, and her countenance expressed all those bad qualities which often characterize that class.
8 I passed an hour in this state of mind, when suddenly I reflected how fearful the combat which I momentarily expected would be to my wife, and I earnestly entreated her to retire, resolving not to join her until I had obtained some knowledge as to the situation of my enemy.
9 During the day I was sustained and inspirited by the hope of night, for in sleep I saw my friends, my wife, and my beloved country; again I saw the benevolent countenance of my father, heard the silver tones of my Elizabeth's voice, and beheld Clerval enjoying health and youth.
10 The death of William, the execution of Justine, the murder of Clerval, and lastly of my wife; even at that moment I knew not that my only remaining friends were safe from the malignity of the fiend; my father even now might be writhing under his grasp, and Ernest might be dead at his feet.
