I would like to know if wrapped in gloom means be melancholic.
I mentioned the incident to my friend, Haco Harfager, then occupying with me the solitude of an old place in S. Germain, shut in by a shrubbery and high wall from the street. He listened with singular interest, and for a day seemed wrapped in gloom.
Vaila, M.P.Shiel, 1895
That's what I would take it to mean.
