That he had no recollection whatever of his having been brought fromhis prison to that house, was apparent to them. They heard him mutter,"One Hundred and Five, North Tower;" and when he looked about him,it evidently was for the strong fortress-walls which had longencompassed him. On their reaching the courtyard he instinctivelyaltered his tread, as being in expectation of a drawbridge; and whenthere was no drawbridge, and he saw the carriage waiting in the openstreet, he dropped his daughter's hand and clasped his head again .

No crowd was about the door; no people were discernible at any ofthe many windows; not even a chance passer-by was in the street. Anunnatural silence and desertion reigned there. Only one soul was to beseen, and that was Madame Defarge- knitting, and saw nothing.

The prisoner had got into a coach, and his daughter had followedhim, when Mr. Lorry's feet were arrested on the step by his asking,miserably, for his shoemaking tools and the unfinished shoes.

"It is well. Forward!" from the uniform. "Adieu!" fromDefarge. And so, under a short grove of feebler and feeblerover-swinging lamps, out under the great grove of stars.

Beneath that arch of unmoved and eternal lights; some, so remotefrom this little earth that the learned tell us it is doubtful whethertheir rays have even yet discovered it, as a point in space whereanything is suffered or done: the shadows of the night were broadand black.
