I closed the window. I combed
his long, black hair from his forehead
. I tried to close his eyes, but they would not shut
. Suddenly frightened, I called for Joseph. The old servant came at once, but refused to touch the body.

eg:His forehead was oozing sweat.
'Ah, the devil's taken his soul! I warned him that would happen!' he cried. 'You see how wicked he is, smiling at death! But thank God Hareton Earnshaw will have the house and land now, that he should have inherited
from his father!' And he went down on his knees
解析：inherit from 从……继承；遗传自……
eg: She inherits her black hair from her mother.
Hareton was, in fact, the only one who was sad at Heathcliff's death. He and I were present
at the burial. Heathcliff was buried next to Catherine's grave, as he had wished. As we were not sure of his age or anything else about him, there is only one word on his gravestone—Heathcliff. The villagers are very frightened of his ghost
. They say he often haunts
the churchyard and the moors.
解析：be present at 出席、在席
eg: His grandfather was present at his wedding.
Hareton and Cathy will be married on New Year's Day, and they'll move to the Grange. I'll be their housekeeper. Joseph will take care of Wuthering Heights, but most of the rooms here won't be used again.
You'll pass the churchyard, Mr Lockwood, on your way back to the Grange, and you'll see the three gravestones
close to the moor. Catherine's, the middle one, is old now, and half buried in plants which have grown over it. On one side is Edgar Linton's, and on the other is Heathcliff's new one. If you stay there a moment, and watch the insects flying in the warm summer air, and listen to the soft wind breathing through the grass, you'll understand how quietly they rest, the sleepers in that quiet earth.
eg: I promise I won't harm another insect as long as I live.
