 Wuthering Heights is the name of Mr. Heathcliff's 1)dwelling. "Wuthering" being a significant provincial1 2)adjective, descriptive of the 3)atmospheric tumult2 to which its station is exposed in stormy weather. One may guess the power of the north wind blowing over the edge, by the 5)excessive 6)slant of a few 7)stunted firs at the end of the house. Happily, the architect had 8)foresight to build it strong: the narrow windows are deeply set in the wall, and the corners defended with large 9)jutting stones.

     The window 10)ledge, above the bed where I placed my candle, was covered with writing 11)scratched on the paint. A name repeated in all kinds of characters, large and small - a Catherine Earnshaw, here and there varied3 to Catherine Heathcliff, and then again to Catherine Linton.

    In 12)vapid 13)listlessness I 14)leant my head against the window, and continued spelling over Catherine Earnshaw - Heathcliff - Linton, till my eyes closed, but they had not rested five minutes when I was disturbed by the noise from the branch of a 15)fir tree that touched my 16)lattice, as the wind 17)wailed5 by, and 18)rattled its dry 19)cones against the 20)panes.

    I 21)resolved to silence it, if possible; I 22)endeavoured to 23)unhasp the 24)casement, but the hook was soldered7 into the staple8.

     "I must stop it, 25)nevertheless!" I 26)muttered, knocking my 27)knuckles through the glass, and stretching an arm out to seize the branch; instead of which, my fingers closed on the fingers of a little, ice-cold hand! The intense horror of nightmare came over me: I tried to draw back my arm, but the hand clung to it, and a most 28)melancholy voiced sobbed9, "Let me in - let me in!"

     "Who are you?" I asked, struggling, meanwhile, to 29)disengage myself.

     "Catherine Linton," it replied shiveringly. "I'm come home: I've lost my way on the moor10!" As it spoke11, I 30)discerned, 31)obscurely, a child's face looking through the window.

      Terror made me cruel; and, finding it useless to attempt shaking the creature off, I pulled its wrist on to the broken pane6, and rubbed it to and fro till the blood ran down and 32)soaked the bedclothes: still it wailed, "Let me in!" and maintained its 33)tenacious grip, almost maddening me with fear.

     "How can I!" I said at length. "Let me go, if you want me to let you in!"

    The fingers relaxed, I snatched mine through the hole, and stopped my ears to exclude the 34)lamentable prayer. I seemed to keep them closed above a quarter of an hour; yet, the instant I listened again, there was the 35)doleful cry moaning on!

     "36)Begone!" I shouted, "I'll never let you in, not if you beg for twenty years."

      "It is twenty years," mourned the voice: "twenty years. I've been a 37)waif for twenty years!"

     There at began a feeble scratching outside. I tried to jump up, but could not stir a limb; and so yelled aloud, in a 38)frenzy of fright. Hasty footsteps approached my chamber12 door; somebody pushed it open, with a vigorous hand.

     Heathcliff stood with a candle dripping over his fingers, and his face as white as the walls around him.
