Usage examples of "roos".

The young nobleman in question, whose handsome features and prematurely-wasted frame bore the impress of cynicism and debauchery, was Lord Roos, then recently entrapped into marriage with the daughter of Sir Thomas Lake, Secretary of State: a marriage productive of the usual consequences of such imprudent arrangementsneglect on the one side, unhappiness on the other.

Lord Roos and his noble friends to turn the tables on the two extortioners.

Though generally governed by his wife, Sir Thomas succeeded, in this instance, in over-ruling her design of proceeding at once to extremities with the guilty pair, recommending that, in the first instance, Lord Roos should be strongly remonstrated with by Lady Lake and her daughter, when perhaps his fears might be aroused, if his sense of duty could not be awakened.

Lady Roos and her husband, at which, with many passionate entreaties, she had implored him to shake off the thraldom in which he had bound himself, and to return to her, when all should be forgiven and forgotten,but without effect.

Meanwhile, Lord Roos had taken advantage of the brief halt of the hunting party to approach the Countess of Exeter, and pointing out Gillian to her, inquired in a low tone, and in a few words, to which, however, his looks imparted significance, whether she would take the pretty damsel into her service as tire-woman or handmaiden.

And with another gracious smile, she rejoined the cavalcade, leaving Lord Roos behind.

Satisfied with what he had heard, Lord Roos moved away, nodding approval at Gillian.

He whom she looked upon was Lord Roos, and the chamber she had just entered was the one assigned to the young nobleman in the Palace of Theobalds.

Startled by her voice, Lord Roos instantly turned, and regarded her with haggard looks.

I was obliged to apprise you that your wife, the Baroness Roos, and Lady Lake are without, and will not be denied admission.

They arrived just in time to intercept Lord Roos, who was conveying his insensible burthen towards the secret staircase.

How to extricate himself from the dilemma in which he was placed, Lord Roos scarcely knew.

I shall consent to any terms you and Lady Roos may propose, rather than suffer you to go forth from this chamber and reveal what you have seen in it.

Lady Roos looked as if she would fain interrupt her mother, but she was too much under her subjection to offer a remark.

So saying, she advanced towards the couch, with the intention of removing the covering, when Lord Roos barred her approach.
