  • Long ... long I read ...

    Long ... long I read ... and devoutly, devotedly I gazed. Rapidly and gloriously the hours flew by and the deep midnight came. The position of the candelabrum displeased me, and outreaching my hand with difficulty, rather than disturb my slumbering valet, I placed it so as to throw its rays more fully upon the book. from "The Oval Portrait" by Edgar Allan Poe (published 1850)
