1 But now, as he stood outside the church, and saw Mattie spinning down the floor with Denis Eady, a throng of disregarded hints and menaces wove their cloud about his brain.
2 Only the young men retained the restless energy which had filled the whole throng a short while before.

5 He led her through the throng of returning holiday-makers, past sallow-faced girls in preposterous hats, and flat-chested women struggling with paper bundles and palm-leaf fans.
6 The throng in the room had increased, and she felt a desire for space and fresh air.
