Excerpt

. Since I last wrote by Saturday evening's post[4] very little change has taken place, though she is certainly more restless, poor child, and I fear also, if anything, weaker. She now constantly asks for letters, and seems impressed with the idea that we are keeping them from her, as indeed, in her present state, I should, I think, take the responsibility of doing, if any arrived. The newspaper I have always kept from her until it has first been carefully examined. I am dreading fever, though by the doctor's advice I have not attempted to dissuade her from getting up. The exertion, however, is almost more than she can bear, and I am looking anxiously for his next visit. She lies all day on the sofa, looking out of the window, which commands a view of the Dover Road. This morning she seems growing more and more restless, and I am waiting with inexpressible anxiety for Dr. Travers.

"Eleven o'clock. "The doctor has been, and confirms my fear of approaching fever, which, however, he says may possibly pass

This epistolary novel covers the deaths of an heiress, her husband and her sister, all of whom have come under the influence of the sinister Baron R***, a mesmerist. The mechanism of the murder seems unlikely, but it becomes very obvious quite early on.
