分离 Margaret's Leaving Milton
Fanny Thornton (John Thornton's sister): I am sorry that you're leaving, Miss Hale. I was hoping that you might visit my house. I've finished it with Indian wallpaper from the Exhibition. I don't suppose you could travel back?
Mrs. Thornton: Miss Hale will be in no mood for travelling back from London just to see your furnishings, Fanny.
Margaret: It was a while ago, but I'm sorry for the way I spoke to you at our last meeting. I know that you meant well.
Mr. Thornton: So, you're going.
Margaret: I've brought you Father's Plato. I thought that you might like it.
Mr. Thornton: I shall treasure it, as well as your father's memory. He was a good friend to me. So you are going. And never come back?
Margaret: I wish you well, Mr. Thornton.
Mrs. Shaw (Margaret's Aunt): I must get her home as soon as possible.
Mrs. Thornton: To be sure. As soon as possible.
(Margaret leaves the house. Mr. Thornton stands in front of the door and sees the carriage go away.)
Mr. Thornton: Look back. Look back at me.
