Against this could I for a moment weigh

In Italy What mattered it to me whether
one crafty statesman held the reins of pow

I went on with a little more care nnd be I
fag a trills cooled by my fall was aulc to i
think letter lly the time rcnchcif my i
apartments I had derided on my routr I I
should leave by the 1orta del Popolo keep
on the right bank of the river as far as i
Dorghetto there cross the Tiber andon to j
1crugia in a straight line by Namji and i
Todi It was close on three and thirty j
leagues but 1 did not mean to spare horse j

ledto I
to my rooms 1 found Jacopu and my men I
ready and Carter whinnied a clad welcome I
pawing ut the air with hisforcfo tin his im
patience St Armandc and the hbbe al

men were a little to the right
I will not keep you a moment chevalier
I called out as 1 patted him and running

A fair night for a long ride excellency
Yec the moon stand well my cloak
quick and we descended the staiis
All ready Jacopo
Your excellency
Steady Castor and 1 swung into the
saddle
There was the jingle of Lit chain tie
clank ofsteel scabbards the ring of iron
shod hoofs on the pavement and with St
Armando by my side and my troop behind
me I left the Palazzo Corneto
To avoid risk ot stoppage I did not go
down by the Alessandria to the Ionte di San
Angelo but determined to cross at tho Hi
I fita Therefore crossing the BorIC di San
Angelo we went northwards by the V d
Tre 1apazzi up the Via Camcllicri and
then turning to the right rode ui the Via
CrcKcenzio To our right as we rode the
moon hung over San Angela and the dark
outlines of the gloomy stronghold loomed
like a vast shadow of evil ubovc mln front
of us lay the Tiber and the long line of fires
of the charcoalburners The latter over
hang by a blue cloud of smoke into which
the forked flames leaped and danced At
the bridge we were stopped by the guard
but the cafeconduct set us free and we
crossed at a slow pace Above the hollow
beat of the horses hoofs I heard the waters
churning around the piers and looking
over the side saw the gray river as it
hummed past below me flecked withwhite
foamtippcd waxei chasing each other in
lines of light across its surface or as they
broke catching the moon pays and dying
in a hundred colors with an angry him
Passing through the ruined Iorta del
LrCbnrles
Charles cannon were still unimpaired we
took the Flammian Way and galloped down
the road almost In darkness owing io the
shadows thrown by the high walls on each
fide of us We rccrossed the Tiber at the
Ponte Molle and still keeping the Via Ma
aiinii turned our horses heads in the direc
tion of Caste Xuovo
Not the best bone in the world could keep
up the pace we were going for long and I
was old enough soldier to know that our
peed must be regulated by the slowest
beast i11e wanted to reach in full strength
so I slackened rein to a walk and gave the
animals a rest
Excepting once when Jacopo rode off to
mule his duty to the Fountain of Trevi I
had not exchanged word with St Ar
raande indeed I was in no mh1J to talk but
hI brow the silence with a qutstinn
Do we rhlo all night cnvtlicre

Cicl he muttered under his breath and
I heard the able as ho leaned forward whis
per Cciutiisx1 would you give way now
Courage
Qeatly there was a mystery hrixto which
1 had no clew and it troubled me 1
glanced at St Arnmude and through the
moonlight saw the white of his check show
ing all the paler for the black patch he wore
transversely across it but looking at him
did not explain matters
What the devil does this mean I mid
half aloud to myself
1 rid you speak
Merely something to myself chevalier
Piarolo But tUJN ii u dull ride
Do you think lof and his tone softened
suddenly
uddcnlyI
I made no reply but stirred up Castor
and we iccu along I left the mystery to
take calC ut itself and mapped out a line of
action 1 would lake only two men with me
into IVrugia and rend the rest with Ar
mandu to the convent of St Jerome to await
the result of my attempt to free Angiola
It sounded like foolishness to give St Ar
mantle the control of the stronger party
especially if he meant treachery but thin
1 was iKpmadcd he did not On the other
hand a following of nix troopers waxatrillc
too many to buy a i > eaccful visit to llaglioni
end might amuse mispicion while they were
too few to utteinpt open force In hort if
I could not do what I wanted with two InllI
I would not be able to effect it with six or
a dozen und matte up my mind to split our
party cither lifter crossing the Iajiu or
beyond at San Fortunuto
In this manner sometimes galloping some
times trotting mid nt other time walking
our horse < to give them a rest we icuihed
Cnstel Xuovo but did not enter the town
skirting it by our right although one of the
trooHr fuggestcd our going westward by
Campagnano a uxelcM detour as it seemed
to me We passed the little town exactly
at midnight nnd the chime of bells striking
the hour fell plensiiitly on our cars A
short way beyond we found the road ro cut
into ruts and Insures that it wis not possible
to go at any other than a snails pare so that
within the next two hours we barely cov
creel as many leagues The moon was now
on the wane the road became worse and
one or two of the horses showed feigns oi
fatigue Jacopo rode up beside inc
fly your leave excellency We have the
road by Somite to crow soon and in the
coming darkness may possibly lose our way
I would suggest therefore tint we halt here
until dawn It will rest the borne and
with the light we could press on

ark in it rear around me my mind tray
in a still greater darkness for I was unnblu
to think of any plan by which I could gain
acccM to n iolIfler reaching Icrujia
Time too use short but that did nut mut
ter for 1 wait lrelIGrt11 to let the affair of
the ducaU sink rather than low any chance
of rescuing her
A straw yet miiainf Iuck might bean
my side and with lurk and n strong heart
one might do an thing There was noth
Ing for it but to content myself for the pros
ent with this Until I reached Ierugia I
could develop no plan So I Patel up and
down with an unsettled mind and finally
seating myself on n stone awaited the morn
ing alternately nodding and awakening
with a start
At last The rant Itcgan to whiten and
getting uji stiffly I touchctl lacopo with the

accgrnpnuying me for a league or so on my

with alacrity and 1 wan subsequently sorry
for my pains for the old bore did not quit
me until we hud all but reached she Nrra

He looked the man I wanted My lackey
was a stout horseman and at a pinch might
hold a sword as well as he held my value
So shaking hand with St Animnde I
put spun to Castor and we dashed till
Turning the corner of a licit of forest lund
I looked back and waved my hand in lu

flutter of the white handkerchief the young
dandy carried as he loooed it to the air in

Gang lit wo were now Ienigia seas but a
few bourn nuroy but the INtel was too great
to last long and from Todi to Ieruxia then
were nine leagues and a tritle over of an
nxcendinj road Castor might do it the
others I was sine would not In otdrr
therefore to test the horses an well an to
avoid qn Htion I resolved that wu should
dine at Itouiro und after an hour or no of

traveling all night so U to reach Ivrugin
in the morning If we went muter we would

We clattered Past the vilUgcij of San

drew ui our now somewhat blown beasts

It wan n moor place 1 saw at a glance and

and he shack his head mournfully
What ill tho ililliculty And I die

Violent men signore who will not allow

Alas signore It is tutclcs They have

Then it is time they made room for other
travelers Give my message landlord and
say I am following
Mine host trotted off with considerable
misgivings expressed in his face und fol
lowed by my lackey bearing my valise I
went after him at a slower puce
Wlien I reached the room which could
hardly be missed seeing it was the only one
in thu house that had any pretense of ap
pearance I found the door open and heard
n halfdrunken voice shouting
llcgonc dog lllood of a king Hut are
two gentlemen to be disturbed because a
signora with a long name wants to dine
