GILBERT -Helen! What means this?
HELEN -You did not understand my gift or, what is worse, you despised it: I'm sorry I gave it you; but since I did make such a mistake, the only remedy I could think of, was to take it away. The rose I gave you was an emblem of my heart, would you take it away and leave me here alone?
GILBERT -Would you give me your hand too, if I asked it? My darling angel, my own Helen. You never shall repent, if it depend on me alone. You will be mine -said Gilbert printing a kiss upon her lips, and another, and another.
