Anticipating the rising of the wind, that very evening, Cassy had been up and opened the garret window
. Of course, the moment the doors were opened, the wind had drafted down, and extinguished the light.
The last rays of the sun, entering through the garret window
, were fading from Ginevra's face as she sat sleeping in her chair, and holding her child upon her breast.
It was a modest building, not very straight, not large, not tall; not bold-faced, with great staring windows, but a shy, blinking house, with a conical roof going up into a peak over its garret window
of four small panes of glass, like a cocked hat on the head of an elderly gentleman with one eye.
Inside, a gravel path wound through desolate grounds to a huge clump of a house, square and prosaic, all plunged in shadow save where a moonbeam struck one corner and glimmered in a garret window
. The vast size of the building, with its gloom and its deathly silence, struck a chill to the heart.
