Usage examples for freckle

  1. Every freckle on her face stood out and asserted itself singly; her pale blue eyes, that gave no indication of her force of character, were weak and wandering, or stared blankly at the judge; her over- sized head, broad at the base, terminating in the scantiest possible light- colored braid in the middle of her narrow shoulders, was as hard and uninteresting as the wooden spheres that topped the railing against which she sat. – The Twins of Table Mountain and Other Stories by Bret Harte
