Mr Theodore Frant
He was a powerfully built man, nearing
his thirtieth birthday, with a resolute, rather square countenance,
and a good deal of reserve in his manner. The cast of
his features bore a certain resemblance to that of his young
cousin's, but the likeness existed merely in the aquiline trend
of the nose, the slightly, heavy line of the jaw, and the set of
the eyes under brows which overhung them enough to give
a forbidding look to the face, The colour of his eyes was a
clear, light gray, as cool and as inexpressive as lake-water;
his mouth, with its firmly closed lips, betrayed no secrets,
but seemed to show that its owner, besides possessing
resolution of character, knew how to keep his own counsel.
His address was good, and his manner had all the quiet
assurance of his breeding.
