My duties not requiring me to be away from Arequipa often, much of my time was spent with felicita.
I had never mentioned to Don Julian or felicita his manner of life.
To Phebe, and to her alone, he was still a living man, unless sometimes felicita thought of him.
He would be gone several days, but felicita would stay here.
In a few moments felicita was entering the dark den where the fate of her book was in the balance.
I demanded, “quick, I say,” but he could only gasp “felicita!”
The deep gloom on her bright young face struck felicita for the first time.
felicita's pale face could not grow paler, but she shivered perceptibly.
But for her ardent sympathy for felicita, Phebe would have been herself overwhelmed.
Mr. Clifford's keen eyes were fastened upon felicita with admiration.
late 14c., from Old French felicite (14c.) "happiness," from Latin felicitatem (nominative felicitas) "happiness, fertility," from felix (genitive felicis) "happy, fortunate, fruitful, fertile," from Latin root *fe-, equivalent of PIE *dhe(i)- "to suck, suckle, produce, yield" (see fecund).
