S past the Lucky Myrtle More than Willow a. . The attentions of the lady Montalvo to Earnest Lavalle were such As might naturally have been . She visited him in person daily. Liere was nothing fax iter own House afforded or that was pro curable in the City which her mind suggested to her As Good and pleasant for an invalid that she did not provide for Lini not a sister of Charity in All Europe that was More fus Sily kind to u penitent than was Ursula to the Young Frenchman. Once Only before Earnest was permitted to Rise from his bed did Juliana accompany her Mother to thank him for the seasonable Protection afforded her and to sex Ress her sorrow for the consequences to himself. Of both lie made liar it and seemed far More solicitous to the Young officer who had so alarmed her. And More concerned at tie severe Price which tie thoughtless youth had paid for his rude Folly Tolian any thing else nor did lie appear very intently to observe her or desirous to a prolong tie interview. But every visit that the lady Montalvo made him he gained upon her after Titus and old Ursula was warm and garrulous in his Praise. This Duel if a combat not deliberate and growing out of the circumstances of the moment can be so called brought Liim a few friends among whom none were More valuable than the surgeon who attended him and the youth wit ii whom he had fought. This Young Man without being required to do so had the right feeling to Send a Var ample apology to the insulted lady through Earnest and As tha same surgeon visited both a patients and was a peace maker of the kindest and most judicious class before Earnest la Yale was Able to go out again and visit the bedside of his late antagonist they were friends. Martin St. Pierre was a wild handsome youth the creature of impulse doing a foolish thing to Day repenting of it to Morrow and As heartily ashamed As he had been severely punished on the present occasion. He Hail two excuses however for his conduct both so often pleaded and so often regarded As admissible that they very grossly mislead he had drank freely and seeing a female alone he did not think it was a lady a As if modesty was Only to be respected in muslims and silk attire. As soon As Earnest was completely restored his life resumed its former course save that As he had made a few friends he was now More frequent from Lime of an he made the morning salutations to lady Montalvo an 1 Ursula if he chanced to meet them with a cheerfulness that sometimes prolonged itself into five minutes Chat. This Juliana often overheard and was surprised at the purity of the Frenchman s Spanish and the fluency with which he spoke it. She Obsen de that he always asked after her but it was Only in a common Fonneal manner and with nothing in the tone that bespoke further curiosity or interest about her. If by any Accident she met him in the gallery or the a or Rodier he seemed to shrink to the Wall he either Bent his head or half averted it uttered the usual compliment in passing with polite Hasto and was out of sight in an instant. Juliana was not a coquette far from it. She was a natural character of Lively and Strong affections and these were All fixed upon an absent and a worthy object a but Juliana. Was a woman,,,-2ntitled to admiration a commanding it a tormented by it a tired of it a and yet strange Riddle the human heart she could neither under a tand nor be Content with the relation in which she at wit i Earnest Lavalle. He had True gallantry in defending her Sut now he was deficient for he would not accept or rather he shunned the expression of her gratitude. The lady Montalvo had several times asked him to to Weir apartment but he had Only availed himself of her invitation twice. He then selected the hour of dusk sat Only a Quarter of an hour spoke Hittle seemed embarrassed and was glad to get away. There was a mystery about All Liis Juliana could not comprehend at last she took it into her head that he was in love. This solved tie difficulty at once and. From the moment that this idea got Possession of her mind he became to her an object of tender interest. She immediately thought of her own beloved Henrico and wets flattered by the fancy that perhaps in some Distant Quarter he kept himself thus it secluded and dwelt with her image As she did with hence Ortli she studied How Best she might Charm and soot lie the Young Frenchman s melancholy. There was a secret sympathy Between them. Music is said to be the food of love Juliana Felt it so and now late into the night she would sit in her chamber murmuring Liose Sweet melodies that Wake grateful sighs even in tie bosoms of the unhappy but that fall upon the ears of melancholy men like to Weir soul s own language. Nor was this All her gentle service he found delicate and fragrant plants ranged in the Balcony before his window and when he returned of a morning from his duties some single Flower of Beauty fresh Vith the Dew of night was standing in a Glass of fair water upon his table. Earnest would sit of a night in his apartment still As a statute put his Elbow Over the chair Back and Refet his Cheek upon his clasped hands and Droop his head listening attentively to the music and the song of j Uliana a and for so Long Lippy. For a few Days after Juliana began this her intended work of Consolation Earnest thought nothing of it further than that it gave him a great Delight but still he did not and could not deem other Tolian that she Sung to please herself. For the Flowers he did not a to Oil to whom he was indebted but yet there was a something in this attention so soft so delicate that it was an acknowledgement of his Knightly service a a payment a pretty and a precious payment for his per led life. It was on an evening soon after the commencement of these Joys which to Ernest were altogether new and which stirred him with very strange emotions that he went into the apartment of Montalvo at dusk to pay a visit. Quot i Hope Senhor Quot said Juliana Quot that my guitar is not disagreeable to you i am sometimes afraid that i disturb you and that my noisy instrument interferes with your pm a plot Quot indeed lady. I have passed no hours in Spain More happily than the few in which i have had the privilege of hearing you sing the very touching and Beautiful airs that for the last few Everi inti have listened to with one Only fear a less you might and put away your guitar too Quot you Are to complimentary like All your countrymen but i am glad to find that you Quot do not dislike music. L3o you know our National airs Quot Quot Many of them but i have never heard them so Given before As to make me truly feel them. I have one that has Long been a favorite with me May i ask you to sing it for me Quot Quot certainly i shall have real pleasure in doing it if i am acquainted with the Quot they begin this a say Juan say of Wiat he did so Young so pensive and so Zairl of unrequited Luve lie died Quot Quot i know Vliem Well Quot said Juliana Quot and it a always been a favorite with me she gave a Little soft and to Yilling prelude on her guitar and then Sung the Mournful ditty with an unaffected Day tender. While she was in the Middle of it Ursula entered with the lamp put it softly Down upon the table and sunk quietly into her seat. Earnest was already so deeply moved by Quot the and by the tone of pathos in which Juli a Sung that his heart was melted within him and was ready to receive any such impression of the enchanting performer As the Bli Siil moment might present. There is something very delightful in the consciousness that we Are conveying pleasure to a person of keen sensibilities it heightens our estimate of our own Powers As Well As our Jii Joyent and we cannot but share the rapture we impart. Thus it was with Julianna in the Pale and agitated youth before her she imagined that she beheld a victim of in requited love. She thought upon her happier lot upon her dear and absent Henry and her heart swelled with the struggling sentiments of gratitude and compassion. These feelings gave to the countenance of Juliana an expression of pity so Sweet and so fearlessly kind that Ernest All bashful As he was by nature met tie Lovely look with that same Eye of glad and grave Delight with Wlinich we gaze upon a Rainbow in a wonder that is Fialo worship. Her Large and Beautiful eyes shone sad upon him and in the flood of to Weir merciful Light his bewildered spirit bathed itself. Nor was Juliana aware of the impression she was thus a designedly producing till the wild steadfastness of his answering gaze confused her and made her drop her eyes with blushing on the ground. Quot Senhor Quot said she Quot i am afraid that you Are too fond of Quot of such music Quot said Ernest recovering himself Quot one cannot i should think be too fond a and yet perhaps Yon Are rights for the rough and restless work of a Soldier s life such melodies unfit and with this he Rose and left them but he left not that apartment As he had entered this passion against which he had so guarded the l owe Rof which he had so dreaded had taken sudden full a resisted Possession of him he loved Juliana and he Felt that he should love her till he i cd. Lie saw it would be slavery As he thought u of himself and then on her that it would be hopeless slavery but he hugged he kissed the Chain All Iron As it was As though it had b ten Woven of nuptial roses. He had never heard never seen such a being before. She had Iii dreams of a in Angels the want of his being seemed sup lied to him he had found in Juliana the woman he was to love. Juliana herself was surprised disturbed afraid. How wonderfully she had been mistaken about this quiet inmate upon whom she had As insignificant his Eye that evening had burned with brightness his voice was the most melodious she had Ever heard and his forehead seemed As the seat of Fine an i Noble thoughts his Silken hair clustered Over it with thick and natural curls and though no one could Call him handsome it was impossible to pronounce him Plain. Juliana was no coquette As t have said she was not vain of her Conquest she had not designed she had not desire it she deeply regretted it but she could not be Blind to the fact and it a is yet the More perplexing because she Felt that he was a Man whom she could not despise and who would for Many reasons be entitled to a treatment the most considerate and gentle. She sadly repented having Sung the requested with such pathos Ami still More the having looked upon the youth with a com Vassio i which might have been by him misinterpreted. Quot yes Juliana there was thy error Quot 1111= is the error of Many a Lovely won Iii who a a a spies coquetry. She knows not the Bright mischief of her looks until she sees Tow it unhappy \ victim dying of a love she can neither destroy nor return. She put away her guitar and that evening she Sung no More. She gathered no Flower for him the following morning but let the fading one of the Day previous Droop Over the Glass unclean be 1. She carefully avoided meeting Ernest in the Guillery As he passed in and out and she resolved not by one single act to give him the faintest encouragement to address her As a Lover. 13ut lovers Are difficult Piersons to understand and manage. Had things gone on in the same train in which they a 1 gently moved for the few Days last past Ernest have quietly and silently e Joyed what he could and been Content did still sup pressing All Strong emotions and giving no vent to the language of fear or Hope. But when he came in from his duties in the morning and missed the daily offering of the dewy lower he at once knew both whence it had hitherto come and Why it was now withheld. He Felt the omission As though it had been a wound a cruel Wanton wound. His breakfast was taken away in tasted and Juliana chanced to notice this for he called his servant for that purpose almost immediately after he came i i and As the Man a sed the door near which she was at the moment standing he was wondering aloud to himself at his master s illness and want of a Petite. With a deep drawn sigh Ernest soon came out of his Chambis and left tiie House. It was his custom to sit for hours after breakfast engaged with his books or Pencil and this made Juliana remark the circumstances. She looked Down through the lattice of her window As he passed under it his lips were Busy his eyes fixed upon the ground his dog could Well enough interpret his master s mood and crept slow with Eye upraised and solicitous by his Side. He did not return to dinner nor till late in the Chilly evening and then again she heard his ser ant demonstrating with him because he had scarce eaten any thing. Juliana had a heart full of kindness she could not doubt that the True Carse of his depression was known to her she certainly Felt a desire to alleviate his suffering but Liow to do this without feeding his regretted flame she could not divine. She heard him walking about his chamber unhappy she heard his hand stricken on his forehead she would have played and Sung to soothe a but this might no be a this would minister to Liis Mission not Medicine but . It was unusually late when she retired to rest but he was still pacing up and Down his chamber and in the morning she was awake when he went out and heard the servant observing to him that he saw he had not been to bed and that if he went on thus without food or rest he would soon be unfit for duty. She gathered a Carnation of rare Beauty while he was out heavily charged with Dew and placed it in a Glass of Clear water on his table. There was no coquetry in this her heart would have reproached her had she done otherwise. But no sooner did Ernest return than she repented of her kind weakness. She heard him when he entered his room seize the Flower and kiss it she heard him bless her in All the fond extravagance of gratitude she heard him for the first time sing a few bars of Light and cheerful music. He ate his breakfast and after sat Down to draw As she guessed for he was caroling the whole morning after with Contentment. Juliana Felt perplexed and uneasy she saw the impetuous violence of his loosened feelings she was certain that he would persecute her with attentions of a nature Lar More life Chilt to evade and re Tolian any to which she had been hitherto. She took counsel with her own Noble mind and generous heart she determined to seize the very earliest to explain to him her exact situation to confide to him the secret of Lur heart and so to compel him by an Appeal to the a highest principles of chivalric Honor to desist from those expressions of his admiration which had been already too unequivocal to be mistaken and which distressed her. Her Resolution once formed she lost no time in carrying it into execution. As he sat after his dinner alone her Mother and Ursula being at the moment in their own apartments she took a plate of confections in her hand As an excuse for her intrusion and entering his chamber presented it with her Mother s regard and with an enquiry after his he stood up ill delighted confusion to thank her he did not dare ask her to be seated but he approx Allied her with the look and the manner of one agitated by the Sweet Hope of ail honorable adoring suitor. Quot lady i am Well quite Well. Were i dying your presence would restore me a the very sound of your voice thrills me my heart beats Quick i am so Quot Juliana blushed deeply for Ere he spoke her eyes had this did the mixing of Gunpowder or lady he took her hand raised it respectfully to making a thing Liki his i Jas and taking ii his forage Cleft the House. In i casting of a Bullet the same hour he exchanged quarters with his Friend the sur j Quot not much of a Trulli a i can t argue the matter a Only Geon and except for a few minutes in which he was direct this i say i la go stand Tarriet for English practice but with ing the removal of his baggage and during which it it took i this bit Al Devil s work i la have Nonirit to to.

Much on what this strange mans Iid a Bont the coming storm he could not but feel a very ten i or anxiety for tin safely of Juliana.

As Ernest passed her door returning to his Quarter lie Felt a strange desire to Cross the , and give her some cautions but he repressed the wish. I shall Only said he alarm her and agitate . So he went on dropping a a Arm Bles sing at the door Quot and flunking How Sweet it would a Quot to enter in once again and then and he checked a rising Sieh what ecstacy to enter it As Harry the Ednirl Ishmail would Well it bid "f. to be a Blank world to him but then was another.

Phe image of Harry incessantly exposed to Kieril haunted or and the conf Ili it tone held by the Garrison inclined her now to think that Atti a a and heavy loss the Inglis would be driven away and Harry and herself again and perhaps forever separated. She was very unhappy and almost . Is the Lime in near for he assault of the Ace the Jii Retsof the ind sanguine Pirry himself trere a Little desire used. He wins sitting with filth Quot Harland at the door of their tent about Sunset on the evening of the 5tii of april under the full in ression that the storm would take place that night. Kal h and Harry were very fond of each other but each of them had thoughts at the moment which kept them silent. They were so intimate and so Brave that they feared not to think and to sigh in each other s presence. Their social silence was broken by the St Jiping of the old adjutant As he was passing by. And telling them that the assault wins not to take place that night. Quot i am vexed at its being put of Quot said the old Soldier Quot for the men Are quite primed for the Job. And there s nothing would Quot yes yes Quot Ralph hard Iid Quot it s the plunder some of the Are thinking about.

It s a a Quot id Job any Way but it s a terrible bad Job to Inive a forlorn Hope hanging on one s mind for two Long Days and a night Between. Quot have you seen him this evening Quot Quot yes a Quot have just left Hirn. Well said he with a smile my capitain s will be dated Only a Day later Thill s All a but i Don t think Mark will Ever be a Captain in this world and i suspect he knows that As he spoke Oreville came up with a Cigar in his Mouth.

They sat chatting about the past events of the siege and about the taking of the City till the drum major arrived in Camp. The old adjutant went away to the colonels and ill a few moments after the party got their letters for there was but one and that for i Park Greville. The night was rather Windy so that he had to read it by tie Lii lit of the Lan Terii and both Blount and Harland agreed afterwards that they i id never witnessed any thing More truly Mark was in Manly handsome Young Man somewhat disappointed by the slowness of his promotion and of late a Little stung by some Severi ties on the part of one of his Superior Otu cers he was poor too and a Little in debt. I hese and Many minor circumstances unknown to any but himself had ind Neil him to Volunteer one of the forlorn Hopes. Phe delay had rather w Igried and depressed him though be strove to conceal this Elf eco but now that he had before him a letter from Home his emotion and anxiety were but too Clear. He smiled with his eyes and then those eyes became Sefl used with Teirs and then Agi Iii he smiled and read on and Beci Ime very thoughtful and very Pale. Quot pleasant news Quot said he As he put the lantern Down and folded up the letter with trembling hands. Quot it s from my sister.

Good at till noon Parade on the Morrow both Harry and his Friend Ralph remarked that Greville looked Calm and resigned thoughtful inti eed but withal Bright. Phe sixth Day of april was a particular Fine Day in the afternoon As Harry Lay upon the grass not far from the lines of the Mai he overheard two Olio were nearer to him and somewhat louder than the others discourse As follows Quot Well Jem Quot said one i am glad they have got a big Hole in that Wall at Quot phey Siviy Quot replied his Comrade Quot that the Grande lord is going to let the Moi seers Quot by the Powers i la Cut him if he does.

He had never before in going into action Felt such intense anxiety to escape a disabled wound As at that evening. To be Early in the town and Early at the House of the Montalvo a this was his Hope his prayer his sole object. He went so far As without saying what for to Tell his favorite sergeant to see and Slick close to him with half a dozen or More of the Best men and the moment they were in the place to follow where he should Lead.

As Send proc coils to the Leviathan i o v. The Billiani room in the Calk de los Santos was lighted up and crowded with French officers on the evening of the Gelli of april to witness a match Between two of the Best players in the Garrison of Badajos. By Way of a Novelty too suggested Pera its by the of a British Force under the Walls they were playing the English game. Quot thirteen to nine Quot cried the Marker. Quot to arms Quot Quot to arms Quot cried the French orderly sergeant putting his head in at the door Rii ree men in a regiment notorious marauders being from England Ireland and Scotland received the nickname of Quot Plairee nearly at the same moment Quot the English Are coming on and immedi Bitely the room was emptied of All the lookers on who went out cursing the English for the Centre trips and pledging ten selves to make Short work of the the players who owing to the heat of the room and for arc inter Freedom of Arm were without their Coats were delayed a minute longer. Quot confound these blundering Engliski Quot said one of them Quot i was in Fine play and should have won the game to a certainty.

A Corporal of the sippers and miners came running into the Billet of Ernest Lavelle with the same report with which the Perg Paiit Luid run to the billiard room. Ernest was Reading he shut the Book on the instant put it by and girdling on his sword hurried out with that upward glancing of the Eye and those moving lips that Mark to heaven alone or to the heaven taught observer below the act of mental prayer Fie ran quickly to his Post at the Bre Ach. The troops were no idly and quietly on the ramparts in tier Eccl order every thing around and wit lion was dark ind still. Ernest himself and every hotly about him seemed intent Only on listening scarce a whisper might be heard they held their Bre Ith from an anxious eagerness for the Quot coming from aloud voice or two a few Hundred Yards in front they knew where the English were forming. They threw a Large firework from the Walls that lighted up the glaces for a considerable to distance and a few fire balls that for several minutes burned brilliantly Nul beautifully. A there they Are said an old Soldier a there behind the hit less Prisic tired eyes saw Iceni not a the. Fireballs went out a presently a French Soldier who stood on the pan pet fired his mus quiet. A barrel of combustibles eroded in the ditch fire Hills were thrown in every directions i Lii Fht lurid indeed but As Clear a that at noon Day shone do about and Ernest saw the English soldiers hurrying Down the ladders into the ditch and Rushing up the in Rich without a Check and with cheers that ring Brave upon the i a and Wen answered As loudly by the French. Ernest stood upon the Edge of the , at the Corner of the Centre breach charged with the watching of the pre tired obstacles but he uttered no cry of Triumph. He had heard of the heroism of the British soldiers and now he witnessed it a not As a generous Man would wish to do for he knew the obstacles in the breach were Insorn Mountable and As the Gallant pressed up and met their confused and bloody deaths his heart Sank within him. The sounds on every Side were wild and stunning but the sight was Plain and awful. Red uniforms and faces furious and frantic might be distinctly seen from moment to moment As the White smoke became thin and was transparent in the fearful illumination. Here were men upon the breach helpless and hopeless but they would not turn and stood raving curses till they fell. Here close to the studded planks a Noble officer persisted in vainly trying to Force a pics Sage and was shot deliberately by a Quot franch Soldier not five Yards above him. Phere one heroic Man worthy of a better Fate actually gained the Chevaux de Frize and making a madly Brave Effort to pass it fell under it lacerated and destroyed by the Stiebs and cuttings of a dozen of the numerous sword Blades. There in the ditch the numbers of Brave men who saw that further attempting of the breach was vain but yet who would not Retreat was destroyed by hand grenades and missle combustibles of every hellish variety a while grape and mus query poured upon All those lining the Edge of the glaces and those below to whom the traverses gave no cover. It was throughout a sickening scene of murder a and murder some of the bravest old French soldiers plainly called it a but Many exulted leaped upon the parapets laughed and mocked at and taunted their Brave assailants. Strange the it while on every Side Ernest heard the loud laughter of Triumph and safety there was a secret persuasion in his heart Tiit the town would be taken. If any thing in the repulse of the enemy from the breach had Given him satisfaction it arose from no National feeling no feeling about self a but from the thought that these very men whose undaunted courage had called Forth All his admiration would if Loose upon the City As conquerors in hot blood Jirovec demons in fury and crime. But the hopeful thought did not con fort him Long for the German s prophecy again Rose to Damp it and soon after even while along the ramparts near him from Joist to Post they were crying Quot All is Well a sounds of combat from the bastion of san Vincente on the South and from the Castle on the North gave birth to the fear which was soon confirmed that the English had taken the Castle and were already fighting in the streets of the City. An Effort to retake the Castle failed on the Southern Side they drove Back the British to the ramparts but it was Only a momentary Success. Panic and confusion sized the very men who a Short hour before were so confide Jit and exulting precipitately and in disorder they abandoned the town. Phe governor with one brigade in better order crossed the Bridge fighting resolutely in the streets As they retired and shut himself up in fort St. Christoval. With this brigade was Ernest Lavalle. Three several times he led a charge against the wild disorderly groups of British soldiers who were Rushing into the City three times himself and parly were forced again to retire and tie officers and men with him made for the Bridge and spoke of All further resistance As . The furious assailants blew open the doors right and left As they came Down the streets and filled the houses cheering like madmen and hallo oing for plunder. He was close to the door of the Montalvo the last men of Trio Frondi act itch ment were then hurrying Down the Bridge. He saw that the Fhi Glish were close at hand that they spared not a single House in their wild ass age be was in agony the door of the Montalvo wins shut. If he delayed without he should Fiill himself upon the threshold and lose All Chance of rendering them service in the scenes to be dreaded within. He caught up a Musket lying at his feet that had been dropped by some wounded Soldier of his own party put the muzzle of it to the lock of the closed door fired. It was strongly fastened and still resisted but All his strength he drove it in with the butt of the Forelock and rushed up to the i apartment where he thought it probable Tho family would seek Refuge. We re was Harry Blount he was binding up the wounds and listening to the last few words of his Friend Ralph Harland who Lay dying at the foot of the Centre breach surrounded by miserable objects and ghastly Quot that once were men Quot and distracted by the Mournful and frantic cries of such us from the agony of their wounds had no Power to control the expression of their pain. Quot thank you thank you dear Harry. I know you War to to be on never mind Niez god bless Quot no Ralph the place is taken the work the Soldier s work is already i must see you out of this dreadful spot find Safe Quot on the glaces before i go and god defend those elsewhere whom i would he lifted him in his arms with these words and by the help of a slightly wounded Man then passing got him Safe up the ladder out of the ditch and placed on the glaces. Ashe Laid him Down the Hind of Ralph tried to thank him with its pressure but the weak cold fingers refused their Oil ice his face assumed the never to be mis Talvon aspect the last kind beams that bespoke consciousness forsook his Noble eyes were succeeded by d Lily dimness turned Glassy some struggled but Inar Licu hit a Quot oui id escaped his lips a and Ralph Harland was lost to his country his corps and his Friend forever. There in the press acc Quot of the Soldi Quot a who has him Harry Knelt Down and the dead and thus in fervent and hurried words he spoke a Quot Here death hath no sting Here hell hath no Victory in lip and life he was a believer in Christ and shall not Quot die for Ever. You cannot return to me May i go to Vou when my hour comes. Bless you by is you my Good True Gallant Friend Quot again he kissed the Corpse and leaving it in charge of the Soldier flew Down the ladder and up the breach and away into the City. A Fei Irful sight was the City at every Ste he met men Hulen with plunder the cunning and the a Ohlhous sober and slinking silent away from the stronger and fiercer spoilers the Wanton Busy at Tho work of destruction breaking and smashing and burning whatever come in their Phe streets were covered with chairs tables cabinets pictures mirrors and All sorts of furniture broken or burning. The Many were screeching at the of their voices every Here and Quot there he met desperate looking ruffians with fierce Drunken eyes firing their pieces wherever and at whatever they chose. His mind was in a terrible state. He rushed through All these groups and objects with a Speed wild and precipitous he was cheered or Jerred or pelted or shot at Joist according to the mood of madness in which the various parties that observed him chanced to be and at last reached the House of the Mentavlos a at the very door a shot fired by a Drunken marauder from a window oppo site passed through his Cap. Phe fears for Juliana in his bosom were too big too Many to be told. Terror and dread had Well nigh turned his brain. The stairs up which he flew with a trembling swiftness was covered with blood and the banisters at which he gladly caught to save himself from falling were wet with the same. At last he entered the Well known apartment the door of the recess leading to that within he saw the Brave old adjutant bleeding and leaning against the Arall on the floor immediately before him Lay five British soldiers three dead and two wounded the room a Pool of blood. Quot All right Harry said the old adjutant with a faint voice Quot All right my boy. I m glad you re come All he ran Forwar d. La the inner chamber or recess were the women. He saw but one Juliana.
