Captain de Montmorency—a patronymic
highsounding enotihg. I do not mean,
however,to infer that any suspected the
man of fashion and tho highwayman to
be one and the same person: that was
ijever known till tho event which 1 am
going to relate took place.
Richard Mowbray had spent his own
small patrimony, years before the period i

most extremes of life and, moreover,
when dcbt3 ^nd poverty stared him grim
ly in,the face, he knew not one useful art
by which he could support existence, or
pay dividends to his creditors. What
was to be done? He eluded a jail as i
long as he could, and one eventful night
riding ou horseback, and meditating
gloomily on his evil fortunes, he met
-—covered by tho darkness from all dis-1
covery—a traveler well mounted—pleth-1
oric—laden with money-bag, and bear
ing likewise the burden of excessive fear.
It was a sudden thought acted upon as

of. Mowbray'made oft'with his booty
