quite conceal a black doublet, buttoueu up lo ine
neck, over which fell a square white collar. The
handsome and expressive head was marked with
stern powerful lines, which did not exclude an
admirable air of bullering, resignation, and in
eilable goodness. The hair, as well as the beard
and eyebrows, was black; and the latter, by some
singular caprice of nature, instead of being separ
ated and forming two distinct arches, extended
from one temple to the other, in a single bow,

moment when Samuel placed the register on the
table. Suddenly, a simple and yet most startling
occurrence roused him from his reverie. In the

.by remembering the subterraneous communica
tions, which according to tradition, were said to
'exist between the cellars of this house and dis
'' "'taut' places; and he conjectured that unknown
: " ' and mysterious personages thus gained access to
' '''it two or three times in a century. Absorbed in
' " tliese thoughts, Samuel approached the fire
place, which as we have said, was directly
opposite the window. Just then, a bright ray of
sunlight, piercing the clouds, shone full upon two
! .largo portraits, hung upon either side of the fire
i place, and not before remarked by the Jew. They
. 'were painted life-size, and represented one a
tance, the sea was visible, and appeared to mingle
with the dark cloud. The sun, just now shining
upon these two remarkable figures (which it ap
peared impossible to forget, after once seeing
them), augmented their brilliancy.
Starting from his reverie, and casting his eyes
by chance upon these portraits, Samuel was great
ly struck with them. They appeared almost alive
" What noble and handsome faces! " he exclaimed,
as ho approached to examine them more closely
'Whose are these portraits? lhey are not
those of any of the Kennepont family, for my
father told me that they are all in hall of mourn
ing. Alas!" added the old man, "one might
'..mi i - think, from the creat sorrow expressed in their

countenances, that they ought to have a place in
that mourning-chamber."
After a moments silence, Samuel . resumed
" Let ine prepare everything for this solemn as
eembly, fVr it has struck ten." So saying, he
approaches, and of the descendants of my grand
father's benefactor, we have seen only this young
priest, with the angelic countenance. Can he be
the sole representative of the Ilennepont family?
He is a priest, and this family will finish with
him! Weill the moment is come when I must
open this door, that the will may be read. Bath
sheba is bringing hither the notary. They knock
at the door, behind which voices were now audible.
He turned the key twice in the lock, and threw
the portals open. lo his great regret, he saw
only Gabriel on the steps, between Rodin and
Father d'Aigrigoy. The notary, and bathsheba,
who hud served them as a guide, waited a little
belli d the pincipal group.
Samuel could not repress a sigh, as he stood
bowing on the threshold, and said to them: "All
is ready, gentlemen. You may walk in."
