What are known as “relicts” of a marine fauna have not been found in the Scottish fresh-water lochs.
One of our Relicts prided herself upon her English, and criticised ours.
One of our Relicts was decidedly less bourgeoise and more paysanne than any of the rest.
All the odd phrasings of the epitaphs—the relicts and consorts and phyticians—were hidden now, translated by the shadows.
The doctor was to ride in my sleigh, while his assistant in another vehicle kept company with the relicts.
I have been refused by nineteen virgins, twenty-nine relicts, and two old maids.
