Adam took his chair again mechanically, and Bartle, for whom there was no chair remaining, sat cheap nike air max on the bed in the background."Have you seen her, sir?" said Adam tremulously."Yes, Adam; I and the chaplain have both been with her this evening.""Did you ask her, sir...did you say anything about me?""Yes," said Mr. Irwine, with some hesitation, "I spoke of you. I said you wished to see her before the trial, if she consented."As Mr. Irwine paused, Adam looked at him with eager, questioning eyes."You know she shrinks from seeing any one, Adam. It is not only you--some fatal influence seems to have shut up her heart against her fellow-creatures. She has scarcely said anything more than 'No' either to me or the chaplain. Three or four days ago, before you were mentioned to her, when I asked her if there was any one of her family whom she would like to see--to whom she could open her mind--she said, with a violent shudder, 'Tell them not to come near me--I won't see any of them.'"Adam's head was hanging down again, and he did not speak.
