  • Nerves fit for sliding panels and tapestry?  (not reviewed by editor)

  • It was by no means unreasonably large, and contained neither tapestry nor velvet.  (not reviewed by editor)

  • Will not your mind misgive you when you find yourself in this gloomy chamber—too lofty and extensive for you, with only the feeble rays of a single lamp to take in its size—its walls hung with tapestry exhibiting figures as large as life, and the bed, of dark green stuff or purple velvet, presenting even a funereal appearance?  (not reviewed by editor)

  • After a very short search, you will discover a division in the tapestry so artfully constructed as to defy the minutest inspection, and on opening it, a door will immediately appear—which door, being only secured by massy bars and a padlock, you will, after a few efforts, succeed in opening—and, with your lamp in your hand, will pass through it into a small vaulted room.  (not reviewed by editor)
