Usage examples for interlude
Further north we come in sight of the coal pits and smoke of Scremerston, while beyond it, Spittal and Tweedmouth bring us right up to Berwick- on- Tweed itself, that grey old Border town which has seen so many turns of fortune, and been harried again and again, only to draw breath after each wild and cruel interlude and go calmly on its quiet way until it was once more called upon to fight for its very existence. – Northumberland Yesterday and To-day by Jean F. Terry
Then came an interlude of unexpected famine; for as the Earl sailed with his suite in a fleet of two hundred vessels for Dort- a voyage of not many hours' usual duration- there descended a mighty frozen fog upon the waters, and they lay five whole days and nights in their ships, almost starved with hunger and cold- offering in vain a " pound of silver for a pound of bread." – Project Gutenberg History of The Netherlands, 1555-1623, Complete by John Lothrop Motley
