1 One cold winter morning, as he dressed in the dark, his candle flickering in the draught of the ill-fitting window, he had heard her speak from the bed behind him.
2 Twice he opened his lips to speak to Mattie and found no breath.
3 "Miss Ellen Robillard," said Gerald, trying to speak casually, for the slightly tilting dark eyes of Ellen Robillard had taken more than his eye.
4 Scarlett scowled, started to speak sharply and then caught herself.
5 She paused in the hall to speak to friends and to greet India who was emerging from the back of the house, her hair untidy and tiny beads of perspiration on her forehead.
6 His name is Rhett Butler and he's from Charleston and his folks are some of the nicest people there, but they won't even speak to him.
7 She could not speak, but she put out a hand and drew him into the room.
8 Then he was gone before she could speak again, closing the door softly behind him.
9 He cleared his throat three times to speak and failed each time.
10 But Scarlett, had she wished to speak, could have told them that it was a far different and more complex trouble.
11 Aunt Pitty, I wish you wouldn't speak of Charles to her.
12 Then I'll speak my mind right this minute.
13 He will be in Atlanta Friday to speak with Captain Butler and to escort you home.
14 Frank Kennedy still pussyfoots about, afraid of his shadow, and I'll be asking him his intentions soon if he doesn't speak up.
15 I shall speak to Dr. Meade about it.
