"He had the eye of a Vulture." "Whenever it fell upon me, my blood ran cold; and so by degrees."
"I undid it just so much that a single thin ray fell upon the vulture eye." "I did this for seven long nights."
"I had my head in, and was about to open the lantern, when my thumb slipped upon the tin fastening." "The old man stood up in the bed, crying out, who's there."
"In an instant I dragged him to the floor and put the heavy bed over him." "Yes, he was stone, stone dead."
"I brought chairs in the room and desired them here to rest from their fatigues." "while I myself, in the wild audacity of my perfect triumph, placed my own seat upon the very spot beneath which reposed the corpse of the victim."
"I admit the deed! --tear up the planks! here, here." 'It is the beat of his hideous heart."
