Between that shadowy Warrior and himself yawned an abyss of Well nigh six Hundred years and yet to Felt attracted to his grave by a subtler sympathy of kinship than he could anyhow bring himself to Leel for the hero of Gran or the governor of Guernsey or any ethers of those his predecessors who reposed close by in High funereal state.

Again and again be read that Brief inscription again and again recapitulated to himself the facts which it recorded. But they were facts of which he found it difficult at first to Realise the full significance. At length i he Drew a deep breath sat himself Down upon i the Altair Tafito and covered his face with his i hands. The Sun had shifted from the painted win-1 Dow and the shadows had changed upon Tibe floor before he looked up from that reverie. I Aik then he arose heavily dreamily like one just roused from a sleep. A one by one he then took the monuments As they came staying to read the inscriptions upon such As were still legible and setting himself apparently to carry array a Clear and per-1 manent recollection not Only of each separate Tomb but of the name and deeds of those who Lay beneath. Happening to have a Pencil and a Small note Book in his pocket he now and then scrawled a line of memorandum As he went along and once he stopped to sketch a Hasty outline of a coat of arms. All this he did methodically earnestly with a strange i look of concentrated purpose in his face such a look As it had never worn in All his life be w w a a a a a a. A 1 is 4f-a it .4. Kp-7-.
