  • I covered my head and arms with the skirt of my frock, and went out to walk in a part of the plantation which was quite sequestrated; but I found no pleasure in the silent trees, the falling fir-cones, the congealed relics of autumn, russet leaves, swept by past winds in heaps, and now stiffened together.
  • Besides, I was out of practice in talking to him: his reserve was again frozen over, and my frankness was congealed beneath it.

  • There are no more uses of "congeal" in the book.
