A moment later, however, she moved, and they beheld her drag herself, on her knees and elbows, to the corner where the little shoe
The landlady flung a pair of lady's shoes

The Marchioness hung on behind for a few moments, and, feeling that she could go no farther, and must soon yield, clambered by a vigorous effort into the hinder seat, and in so doing lost one of the shoes
The tailor noticed my confusion, and was just going to inquire the reason when the door of the room opened, and the old man appeared, carrying with him my hatchet and shoes
