6:44
$1.05

Downstairs, then, they went…

6:03
$1.05

Chapter 4

5:24
$1.05

It was an advance, and as such, perhaps…

$1.05

Chapter 5

6:03
$1.05

'Don't call names,' Dobbin said…

5:12

Chapter 6

6:39
$1.05

The party was landed at the Royal Gardens in due time.

5:23
$1.05

Captain Dobbin had some thoughts of joining the party at supper…

6:01
$1.05

'He must propose to-morrow,' thought Rebecca.

6:33
$1.05

As George walked down Southampton Row, from Holborn…

4:36
$1.05

The next day, however, as the two young ladies sat on the sofa…

5:10
$1.05

Chapter 7

5:18
$1.05

Having passed through Gaunt Square into Great Gaunt Street…

4:42

6:18

At four o'clock, on such a roseate summer's morning…

$1.05

Chapter 8

$1.05

Mr. Hodson laughed again.

6:21
$1.05

$1.05

Chapter 9

6:12
$1.05

It was he who taught the butler to say…

6:33

As he would not pay honest agents…

Chapter 10

5:17

5:36
$1.05

Whether it was the heart which dictated this new system…

5:58
$1.05

Chapter 11

5:31
$1.05

Very soon then after her arrival…

5:58
$1.05

Miss Letitia Hawky, on the other hand, is not personally well-favoured.

6:33
$1.05

Another admirable effect of Miss Crawley…

6:28
$1.05

When Mrs. Bute Crawley (whose artifices…).

5:41
$1.05

Miss Crawley had not long been established at the Hall…

5:44
$1.05

'That was the most beautiful part of dear Lord Nelson's character…'

6:26
$1.05

Chapter 12

4:31
$1.05

Their house was comfortable…

5:50
$1.05

Once, after three days of absence…

5:34
$1.05

We have talked of shift, self, and poverty…

4:13
$1.05

While under this overpowering impression…

3:10
$1.05

Chapter 13

5:49
$1.05

'Are you engaged?' Captain Dobbin interposed.

5:36
$1.05

Sambo, whose face as he announced Captain Osbin…

5:38
$1.05

When Amelia stepped forward to salute him…

5:17
$1.05

The gloom on the paternal countenance…

5:49
$1.05

'But to return to the other business about Amelia…'

4:51
$1.05

Chapter 14

6:03
$1.05

'But why, why won't she see me again?' Miss Briggs bleated out.

6:23
$1.05

The causes which had led to the deplorable illness of Miss Crawley…

5:37
$1.05

The Captain thought so, and raved about her in uncouth convulsions.

5:58
$1.05

If the Baronet of Queen's Crawley…

5:57
$1.05

'What a complexion, my dear! What a sweet voice!'

5:55
$1.05

Rawdon Crawley received George Osborne…

5:57
$1.05

'What an honour to have had you for a brother-in-law…'

5:29
$1.05

When the demise took place…

5:44
$1.05

Chapter 15

6:49
$1.05

'My attitude,' Rebecca said…

5:46
$1.05

Rebecca might, perhaps, have told more…

6:46
$1.05

If the mere chance of becoming a baronet's daughter…

6:02
$1.05

Chapter 16

5:45
$1.05

The occurrences of the previous day…

6:09
$1.05

'La, Miss Briggs,' the girl exclaimed…

6:19
$1.05

It was not until the old lady was fairly ensconced…

6:28
$1.05

Chapter 17

5:25
$1.05

'No. 369,' roared Mr. Hammerdown.

5:19
$1.05

In a word, it arrived that evening…

6:40
$1.05

By these attentions, that veteran rake, Rawdon Crawley…

5:37
$1.05

Chapter 18

5:37
$1.05

Only once in the course of the long night…

6:04
$1.05

And as a general rule…

5:45
$1.05

Young Amelia felt that she would die or lose her senses outright…

6:05
$1.05

'It is a mercy, Mamma, that the regiment is ordered abroad,'…

5:25
$1.05

There was a little letter of a few lines, to which he pointed…

6:44
$1.05

Chapter 19

5:18
$1.05

'My girls' singing, after that little odious governess's…'

6:27
$1.05

She described with the most vivid minuteness…

6:14
$1.05

But if a fault may be found with her arrangements…

4:48
$1.05

'The sight of her horrid nephew casually in the Park…'

6:23
$1.05

Chapter 20

7:07
$2.10

It is certain that Mr. Dobbin, having taken the matter in hand…

5:54
$1.05

'You're a military man,' he went on…

6:33
$1.05

George, in conversation with Amelia…

6:19
$1.05

Chapter 21

6:02
$1.05

This imperative hint disturbed George a good deal.

6:24
$1.05

The girls, after vain attempts to engage him in conversation…

6:12
$1.05

After giving a great heave…

5:45
$1.05

Chapter 22

5:50
$1.05

'Here you are,' said our old friend, Jos Sedley, coming forward.

5:12
$1.05

Some ten days after the above ceremony…

6:36
$1.05

Our young bride and bridegroom had chosen Brighton…

6:13
$1.05

Chapter 23

6:02
$1.05

'One of our young men is just married,' Dobbin said…

6:00
$1.05

This adroit question touched the heart of Miss Jane Osborne not a little.

5:09
$1.05

Chapter 24

5:40
$1.05

'You are a good fellow, William,' said Mr. Osborne in a softened voice…

6:40
$1.05

Miss Wirt, by consequence, was alone on her side of the board…

5:45
$1.05

In the large shining mahogany escritoire…

6:06
$1.05

The invitation and the rough draft of the answer…

6:38
$1.05

This news made Dobbin grave…

6:13
$1.05

Chapter 25

5:45
$1.05

'A pretty way you have managed the affair,' said George…

6:16
$1.05

Oh! thought she, I have been very wicked…

5:59
$1.05

Amelia, with a look of tender alarm in her eyes…

5:45
$1.05

Putting her arm round her friend's waist…

5:46
$1.05

Mrs. Bute measured out the glasses of wine…

6:27
$1.05

'Rawdon, who was all heart,' Rebecca continued…

5:50
$1.05

'I thought that you were aware…'

4:42
$1.05

Miss Crawley must have had some emotion upon seeing him…

5:32
$1.05

Chapter 26

6:25
$1.05

There were but nine days past since Amelia had left…

7:24
$2.10

So he sent off Amelia once more in a carriage to her mamma…

6:39
$1.05

Chapter 27

5:22
$1.05

Major O'Dowd, who had served his sovereign…

5:11
$1.05

'Mrs. Heavytop, the Colonel's wife…'

6:06
$1.05

Chapter 28

6:19
$1.05

Everybody had such a perfect feeling of confidence in the leader…

5:42
$1.05

'Except Ireland, where all your best mate comes from'…

6:13
$1.05

'I hope there will be no women besides our own party,'…

6:32
$1.05

Chapter 29

5:51
$1.05

'Don't you see that creature with a yellow thing in her turban…'

6:15
$1.05

Amelia's gentle eyes, too, had been fixed anxiously on the pair…

5:29
$1.05

George accepted the invitation, although his wife was a little ailing.

6:18
$1.05

She spoke French so perfectly…

6:11
$1.05

Osborne meanwhile, wild with elation, went off to a play-table…

5:36
$1.05

Chapter 30

6:52
$1.05

Rebecca always knew how to conjure away these moods of melancholy.

6:18
$1.05

'What a fright I seem,' she said, examining herself in the glass…

6:25
$1.05

'Sir,' said Jos, majestically…

6:07
$1.05

Chapter 31

5:11
$1.05

'How those sleeve-buttons will suit me!' thought he…

5:03
$1.05

'The King of France is at Ghent, fellow,' replied Jos…

5:45
$1.05

Oh! dear Mr. Sedley, I have come to you for comfort…

5:26
$1.05

How long had that poor girl been on her knees!

5:38
$1.05

Rebecca walked, too, silently away.

5:33
$1.05

Chapter 32

6:15
$1.05

As far as his regiment was concerned…

6:07
$1.05

Isidor swept off the mustachios in no time with the razor…

6:22
$1.05

It was while enjoying the humiliation of her enemy…

6:41
$1.05

No man writhing in pain on the hard-fought field…

6:15
$1.05

The Duke of Wellington had but twenty thousand British troops…

5:58
$1.05

When Jos heard that dreadful sound…

5:28
$1.05

Chapter 33

6:37
$1.05

To the rector's lady…

6:20
$1.05

The Lady Emily was her brother's senior by many years…

6:19
$1.05

During these exercises old Southdown…

3:23
$1.05

'Stop, my dear ladies,' said Pitt, the diplomatist.

3:45
$1.05

Chapter 34

6:21
$1.05

In the autumn evenings (when Rebecca was flaunting at Paris…).

6:18
$1.05

Mrs. Bute did not augur much good to the cause…

6:15
$1.05

'Haw, haw,' laughed James…

6:03
$1.05

'Come, come,' said James…

6:27
$1.05

Once up in the bedroom, one would have thought…

6:35
$1.05

It is to be feared that this letter of the Parisian great lady…

5:27
$1.05

Chapter 35

5:19
$1.05

The letter was in George's well-known bold handwriting.

6:12
$1.05

On the day after his arrival at Brussels…

6:05
$1.05

They stared blank in the face of Osborne…

5:04
$1.05

Suppose some twelve months after the above conversation…

6:20
$1.05

Chapter 36

5:43
$1.05

The truth is, when we say of a gentleman…

5:22
$1.05

But, in spite of Rawdon's undoubted skill and constant successes…

5:32
$1.05

Rebecca did not care much to go and see the son and heir.

6:04
$1.05

Chapter 37

5:44
$1.05

This was the way, then, Crawley got his house for nothing…

5:11
$1.05

With regard to the world of female fashion and its customs…

5:29
$1.05

When your father dies…

5:58
$1.05

'Rawdon,' said Becky, very late one night…

5:43
$1.05

About the little Rawdon, if nothing has been said all this while…

5:55
$1.05

Now Rawdon Crawley, rascal as the Colonel was…

5:40
$1.05

Chapter 38

5:15
$1.05

Well, well - a carriage and three thousand a year…

4:52
$1.05

Amelia, the gentlest and sweetest of everyday mortals…

4:54
$1.05

In this room was all Amelia's heart and treasure.

6:03
$1.05

He vowed and protested…

5:36
$1.05

A second prospectus came out…

5:33
$1.05

'Mrs. Mango's own set at the Pineries was not so fine,'…

5:39
$1.05

Chapter 39

6:12
$1.05

He led the way into Sir Pitt's 'Library'…

5:55
$1.05

Sir Pitt lived in private…

6:03
$1.05

Half an hour afterwards there was a great hurry and bustle in the house.

6:13
$1.05

Chapter 40

6:06
$1.05

At last a day came when the nurse's occupation was over.

4:48
$1.05

In a word, Pitt having come to his kingdom…

5:50
$1.05

Briggs was the house-dog whom Rebecca had provided as guardian…

5:44
$1.05

Chapter 41

4:22
$1.05

Sir Pitt had judged correctly, that she would not quit the premises.

5:23
$1.05

'What I should like best,' said Rebecca…

5:04
$1.05

Sir Pitt remembered the testimonies of respect and veneration…

5:32
$1.05

Bute's curate, a smart young fellow from Oxford…

4:47
$1.05

'It isn't difficult to be a country gentleman's wife,' Rebecca thought.

6:16
$1.05

Chapter 42

6:16
$1.05

That she should utterly break with the old man…

6:34
$1.05

I can't say that nothing had occurred to disturb the monotony…

7:12
$2.10

Chapter 43

6:30
$1.05

There are women, and handsome women too…

6:20
$1.05

We have said how the two Misses Dobbin and Amelia…

6:48
$1.05

So these two were each exemplifying the Vanity of this life…

5:47
$1.05

Chapter 44

5:20
$1.05

Well, Rebecca listened to Pitt, she talked to him…

5:56
$1.05

And with regard to Becky…

5:02
$1.05

Lord Steyne also heartily disliked the boy.

5:30
$1.05

It was dark again when little Rawdon was wakened up…

5:20
$1.05

Chapter 45

5:53
$1.05

Pitt Crawley was amazed and enraptured with her speech.

6:35
$1.05

Next comes boy Jack, Tom Moody's son…

6:00
$1.05

Her presence, too, rendered Lady Jane uneasy.

5:39
$1.05

Chapter 46

5:18
$1.05

In these quiet labours and harmless cares…

5:28
$1.05

He brought back money and toys…

5:20
$1.05

Then it came out that Jos's remittances were not paid…

5:31
$1.05

Chapter 47

5:35
$1.05

Lady Mary Caerlyon was brought up at a Parisian convent…

5:36
$1.05

'Then again, as to the feeling of elder towards younger sons.'

6:31
$1.05

It was the mysterious taint of the blood…

4:30
$1.05

Chapter 48

5:52
$1.05

Becky felt as if she could bless the people…

6:10
$1.05

And the diamonds…

6:21
$1.05

'If you had been sandy-haired, green-eyed…'

6:05
$1.05

Briggs looked up from the work-table…

5:30
$1.05

Chapter 49

6:29
$1.05

The ladies of Gaunt House called Lady Bareacres in to their aid…

6:39
$1.05

On her first appearance Lord Steyne stepped forward…

6:36
$1.05

Chapter 50

6:07
$1.05

One truth after another was marshalling itself…

6:06
$1.05

Her mind being made up…

5:50
$1.05

The widow broke the matter to Georgy with great caution…

6:28
$1.05

Chapter 51

6:20
$1.05

I doubt, I say, that Becky would have selected either…

6:14
$1.05

'Rawdon would make a very good Ecuyer…'

6:29
$1.05

The little woman, attacked on a sudden…

6:35
$1.05

At the time whereof we are writing…

5:56
$1.05

The second part of the charade takes place.

6:37
$1.05

'I think it must be "Hotel",' says Captain Grigg of the Life Guards…

5:24
$1.05

There was a ball after the dramatic entertainments…

6:04
$1.05

Chapter 52

6:27
$1.05

It was honest Briggs who made up the little kit for the boy…

6:50
$1.05

He laughed within himself at this artless story.

7:05
$2.10

What words can paint the ecstatic gratitude of Briggs!

6:26
$1.05

Chapter 53

5:36
$1.05

Now on the score of his application…

6:11
$1.05

When Rawdon read over this letter…

5:45
$1.05

He, too, attempted a laugh…

6:04
$1.05

Chapter 54

5:38
$1.05

Damn it. Look here, Pitt…

5:09
$1.05

Rawdon Crawley meanwhile hurried on from Great Gaunt Street…

5:55
$1.05

'You don't know how fond I was of that one,' Rawdon said…

5:30
$1.05

Chapter 55

5:15
$1.05

'Are you all here to insult me?' cried Becky in a fury…

5:52
$1.05

'I looked for a peerage for you, Pitt,' she said…

5:26
$1.05

Young Tandyman, a hero of seventeen…

5:30
$1.05

The Colonel and his aide-de-camp went out to meet the gentleman…

5:34
$1.05

'She asked you to sup with her?' Captain Macmurdo said.

5:46
$1.05

But Rawdon would not hear of it.

4:16
$1.05

Chapter 56

5:37
$1.05

Though he was scarcely eleven years of age…

5:50
$1.05

In the company of this gentleman…

5:55
$1.05

'Then those friends who had the honour…'

5:39
$1.05

Miss Osborne, George's aunt, was a faded old spinster…

6:37
$1.05

Chapter 57

5:30
$1.05

The hidden and awful Wisdom…

5:12
$1.05

He desired to be buried with a little brown hair-chain…

5:08
$1.05

Many and many a night…

5:13
$1.05

Chapter 58

6:05
$1.05

There, however, stood the old waiter at the door…

5:48
$1.05

The landlord and landlady of the house…

6:08
$1.05

'Who is come?' said Emmy, still thinking of her son.

6:30
$1.05

She did not talk at all about her own sufferings…

4:38
$1.05

Chapter 59

5:35
$1.05

To make these waistcoats for a man of his size and dignity…

5:32
$1.05

But Amelia, looking up at her bed…

5:30
$1.05

Shortly after Jos's first appearance at Brompton…

5:19
$1.05

When the men appeared then bearing this old music-box…

6:07
$1.05

Chapter 60

4:35
$1.05

Emmy, you may be sure, was very glad to see her…

4:38
$1.05

Joseph Sedley then led a life of dignified otiosity…

5:45
$1.05

Chapter 61

6:13
$1.05

He loved his daughter with more fondness now…

6:39
$1.05

When old Osborne first heard from his friend Colonel Buckler…

6:12
$1.05

'It is some of Sedley's wine,' whispered the butler to his master.

6:39
$1.05

Jos's friends, male and female, suddenly became interested…

6:04
$1.05

Our old friend, Miss Swartz, and her husband…

4:07
$1.05

Chapter 62

6:29
$1.05

'Those people seem to interest you a good deal,' said Dobbin…

6:14
$1.05

And in reply to some faint objections of Mrs. Amelia's…

6:30
$1.05

During the astonishing Chorus of the Prisoners…

6:47
$1.05

Chapter 63

5:40
$1.05

Pumpernickel stands in the midst of a happy valley…

5:56
$1.05

Besides the regular sentries…

5:43
$1.05

Some of the German ladies, who are very sentimental…

6:03
$1.05

When she saw the boy, at whose face she looked hard…

6:27
$1.05

Chapter 64

6:48
$1.05

She was probably so much occupied in arranging these affairs…

6:17
$1.05

It was after this visit that Becky, who had paid her weekly bills…

5:57
$1.05

The Eagles then patronized Mrs. Rawdon…

5:50
$1.05

So our little wanderer went about setting up her tent…

5:15
$1.05

So Becky, who had arrived in the diligence from Florence…

6:34
$1.05

Becky laughed, though in rage and fury.

5:46
$1.05

Chapter 65

5:26
$1.05

The frank honest face, to tell the truth…

5:29
