Judy Vaguely, as in a dream, she saw the lights and the flowers, the satin gowns and the diamonds, the scarlet and white upon the walls, brush and vizard, vizard and brush. He[Pg 304] was not there. She looked along the crowd, and that tall figure and that dark head were absent. She ought to have been glad at this respite, and yet her heart grew heavy as lead. � 鈥業 gather that the owner wishes the transaction to be private,鈥?he said. 鈥楢nd I wish the same.鈥? 鈥楢re you serious?鈥?she asked. 鈥榊ou told me about Pan,鈥?he said. 鈥業 had never heard of him before.鈥? � She had lifted herself into a sitting position, she who had not been able to sit up for many days past. I'm going to spend the summer with my elbows spread out on it, I've changed my name. 鈥楳ay me come in?鈥?he said. 鈥楢nd how are us?{200}鈥? Against this general uncertainty of punishment, which no severity in the law can affect or make up for, the only certainty of punishment dependent on the law is in the event of conviction. But even this certainty is of a very qualified nature, for it depends on sentiments of due proportion between a crime and its penalty, which in no two men are the same. Every increase of severity in punishment diminishes its certainty, since it holds out to a criminal fresh hopes of impunity from the clemency of his judges, prosecutors, or jury.
