    The narrator relates how she became concerned for a brother and sister walking in the Scottish Highlands. She observes that her power of sight was 'sharpened by the anxiety' which she 'began to feel for these young people' (270). When, after a search, the brother was found dead, the sister became insensible, and remained ill for some hours before becoming conscious again.
