She recognized me at once and before i could turn away she had sprung Forward and throwing Lier arms about my neck cried out hysterically for me to save her. I could not say a word but Only glanced at Basil who stood watching in open mouthed astonishment. I pushed Atalie gently away and said a i am powerless to do anything for you unless i can coax my brother to let you a a he your brother a she exclaimed pointing at Basil. A a then i am surely lost a and she returned to tile other room closing the door. Basil took me by the Arm and we went into the open air. His eyes glittered in a Way i had never seen them. A you know her a he said. A yes a i need not ask i told him in a few words tile Story of our acquaintance. For a few moments he sat without saying a word. Then he Rose and going into Tho Cabin was gone for half an hour. It was deep Twilight when he came to me and fast growing dark. A you Are hungry a he said and Lead the Way to a rough Lodge which he said was his own. He did not say a word daring the meal of dried Venison and a kind of Corn cake which i knew he had made himself As it was much better than the indians cooked. When we had finished lie turned abruptly and said a i shall remain with the somehow i had been expecting him to say this and did not reply. Quot i have a Mission for you to begin a what is a it concerns one whom i have grown to love if i can understand what love a Satalic a a yes Atalie and were i in different circumstances i might have hoped to win her but As i am she hates me and lays the blame other Captivity and detention to myself. It is Fate relentless a it is not Fate a i it is your own self. You hew your own pathway. You take your own chances with your eyes open and when made to suffer Call it go on but do not Prate to me of such a still i Call it Fate. I cannot take her away but you can. To night she must Start on her journey to her father who i understand is somewhere near the Mouth of the great River with his ship. You and Davoust will go. Wait Here a to stepped away and in Twenty minutes returned with Davoust. A go Down to your boat take these skins. I will accompany you and then bring Atalie to chapter xviii. Tame delivered to her Kather. Toward evening i saw far Down the River a Large boat manned apparently by several men and alarmed for fear they might be indians and hostile i pulled into an Inlet made by a Small Creek and landed. Leading Atalie to a place of Security and telling her to sit As quietly As possible i returned to tile Shore and crouched Down in a clump of Hughes to watch Tho boat. I had Only a Short time to wait when the Craft came in sight. In it were eight men two of whom were indians tile rest dressed in soiled red uniforms of British soldiery. Standing in the Bow was the Man whom i was searching Atalie a father. I leaped to my feet and culled loudly to him. The indians sprang up and levelled their rifles but major Campbell motioned them Down. A pull to Shore a i cried. A i have your daughter one of the men spoke in a Low tone to him and to a command i could not hear each Man took his Rifle and cocked it. It flashed upon me in a moment that they feared an ambush. I was about to Call my prisoner when she sprang Forward and stood at my Side calling to her father. Still they did not come but pulled the boat a Short distance away unmindful of the agonizing cries of the woman by my Side. A a come i said reaching out my hand which she took in hers a we will go to a my father has forgotten me a she cried. A i have been away so Long but you will Tell him who i am. You know i am Atalie a yes i know but he is Only afraid of an we were stepping into the boat when she turned and looking into my face said a i was cruel to you once when you acted honorable. You Are again acting nobly. I shall never forget i could not speak for my heart had suddenly gone up into my Throat. It was but a few moments before i was alongside major Campbells boat and Atalie was Safe in her fathers arms. I was about to pull away when Ope of the men grasped my boat and asked what should be dope with me before i could reply Atalie had exclaimed a let him do As he wishes. What right have you to detain him a a was an escaped prisoner from de troit a was the reply a major do you not recognize him he is the one who came near killing a father you will forgive him a she answered. A see i do a and leaning Over Tho gunwale of the boat before i could move she pressed her lips to my forehead and kissed me.

Three times to speak to an Indian who was evidently watching our movements. We went Down the Steep Bank to our boat and waited for Basil to bring Atalie.

I wrapped Atalie in tile skins for the night was cold and Davoust and rowed rapidly tile River being High the water was running swiftly and our Long boat fairly sprang Down the Stream. When morning Carne we were Many Miles below the Confluence of the Rivers and our fair passenger was fast asleep.

A no Indian that a said Davoust As we neared Hora a the is a his face was Pale As death Aud he stood up Rifle in hand Atalie still slept. Closer and Doser we came to the Man. Involuntarily my oar dropped from my hand i could not be mistaken it was hubs lion Etta. Davoust had instinctively known it from the first. The boat was moving Only with the Stream. I hallowed to my father but he did not seem to hear me. Together he and Davoust raised their rifles. Two reports came almost simultaneously. Atalie leaped to her feet Only to see Davoust throw his hands up convulsively and fall Forward with tile blood sporting from a Hole in his forehead. He went into the River and Sank from sight. The Man on the Shore did not move but stood As we had first seen him leaning on his Rifle. I turned my Bead away and pulled quickly at the oars. Atalie had fainted but i had no time to attend to her. My whole mind being Bent on getting away from the Tail j up Tho River and the major going Down i did not Row far but pulling into Shore began drawing the boat upon the Bank. A would you like a Little Aid my the voice pierced me like a knife and i Felt faint As i looked up. A you done to seem pleased to see your father a said Tho owner of the voice coming Down to me.
