Excerpt from The White Lady: A Romance

See, Bertha, what a likeness there is in the countenance of this old lady to that of thine Otho exclaimed one of her cousins, as she pointed to the opposite wall.

Yes, but not in look and manner, observed another, who had casually joined them.

Bertha, at the name of her husband, had turned from the picture which she was attentively examining, and, directing her looks to. Wards the likeness in question, was also struck with the similarity which the face of the Matron, before which she stood, presented to her Otho, and not only to him, but to another figure which was de lineated on that ancient, blackened painting as the chief personage in various scenes. Attired in an antiquated dress of black velvet, trimmed with fur, a white veil, twined in numerous folds faround her head, sat a lady of about fifty years of age on a kind of bench or seat, the high and pictured back of which stretched across the whole breadth of the painting, forming the back-ground of the figure. As she sat absorbed in contemplative and calm repose, her features wore an expression as if she never desired to rise or move again. Peace and love alone appeared to animate her features and her whole being she looked as if to her the past and present were combined in the immediate moment, and as if she had neither thought nor feeling for aught beyond it.
