“He talked now, freely enough; and she presently saw fit to
retreat to her solitude; but the frost had set in, and, in spite of her
pride, she was forced to condescend to our company, more and

let them say the least word to her, and she’ll curl back without
respect of any one! She’ll snap at the master himself, and as good
as dares him to thrash her; and the more hurt she gets, the more
venomous she grows.”

At first, on hearing this account from Zillah, I determined to
leave my situation, take a cottage, and get Catherine to come and
live with me; but Mr. Heathcliff would as soon permit that as he
would set up Hareton in an independent house; and I can see no
remedy, at present, unless she could marry again; and that scheme
it does not come within my province to arrange.

prophecy, I am rapidly recovering strength; and, though it be only
the second week in January, I propose getting out on horseback in
a day or two, and riding over to Wuthering Heights, to inform my
landlord that I shall spend the next six months in London; and, if
he likes, he may look out for another tenant to take the place, after
October. I would not pass another winter here for much.
