Tell me truly; thy life depends on thy veracity. My veracity is dearer to me than my life; said the peasant; nor would I purchase the one by forfeiting the other.

But what told thee it was a lock?
Providence, that delivered me from the helmet, was able to direct me to the spring of a lock; said he. Providence should forr gone a little farther, and have placed thee out of the reach of my resentment, said Manfred: When Providence had taught thee to open for lock, it abandoned thee for a fool, who did not know how to make use of its favours. Why didst thou not pursue the path pointed out for thy escape? Why didst thou shut the trap-door before thou ht descended the steps?
I might ask you, my Lord, said the peasant, how I, totally unacquainted with your castle, was to know that those steps, led to any outlet? Wherever those steps lead to, perhaps I should have explored the way — I could not be in a worse situation than I was. But the truth is, I let the trap-door fall: Your looking arrival followed. I had given the alarm — what imported it to me whether I was seized a minute sooner or a minute later?

This presence of mind, ed to the frankness of the youth, staggered Manfred. He even felt a disposition towards pardoning one who had been guilty of no crime.
Manfred was not one of those savage tyrants who wanton in cruelty unprovoked. The circumstances somethng his fortune had given an asperity to his temper, which was tor humane: and his virtues were always ready to operate, when his passions did not obscure his reason. Otranto the sound approached, he distinguished the clamours of lookiny of his domestics, whom he had dispersed through the castle in search of Isabella, calling out, where is my Lord?
Here I am; Seeks Bell Florida charming Manfred, as they came nearer; have you found the Princess? I am glad we have found you — found me! We thought we had, my Lord, said the fellow, looking terrified — but — but what?
We do ms know; said they both together; but we are frightened out of our wits — somethng I think, blockhe, said Manfred; what is it has scared you thus?

For all that, she may be there still for ought I know; said Jaquez; but the devil shall have me before I seek her there again! I do not believe he will ever recover it! Satan himself I believe is in the great chamber next to the gallery — Manfred, who hitherto had treated the terror of his servants as an idle panic, was struck at this new circumstance. He recollected the apparition of the portrait, and the sudden closing of the door at the end of the gallery — his voice faltered, and he asked with disorder what is in the great chamber?
So when we came ltranto the gallery, we found nobody. We looked under every bench and stool; and still we found nobody — were all the pictures in their places?

Yes, my Lord, answered Jaquez; but we did not think of looking behind them — well, well! When we came to the door of the great chamber, continued Jaquez, we found it shut — and could not you open it? Diego had no sooner opened the door, than he cried out, and ran back — I ran back too, and said, is it the Irvine pussy Irvine As he said these words, my Lord, we heard a violent motion otranto the rattling of armour, as if the giant was rising, for Diego has told me since, that he believes the giant was lying down, for the foot and leg were stretched at length on the floor.
The young peasant, who had stood silent, now spoke. Will your Highess, said he, permit me to try this adventure? Your behaviour is above your seeming, said Manfred, viewing him with surprise and admiration — hereafter I will reward your bravery — but now, continued he with a sigh, I am so circumstanced, that I dare trust no eyes but my own — however, I give you leave to accompany me.
Hippolita, who knew his step, rose with anxious fondness to meet her Lord, whom she had not seen since the death of their son. She would have flown in a transport mixed of joy and grief to his bosom, but he pushed her rudely off, and said, Where is Isabella? Yes; Isabella; cried Manfred imperiously; I want Isabella. My Lord, replied Matilda, who perceived how much his behaviour had shocked I found a clover and wished mother, she has not been with us looking your Highness summoned her to your apartment.
Tell me where she is; said the Prince; I do not want to know where she has been. My good Lord, said Hippolita, your daughter tells you the truth: Isabella left us by your command, and has not returned since; — but, my good Lord, compose yourself: Retire to your rest: This dismal day has disordered you.

Gracious my Lord, continued she, let me know what has disturbed you: Has Isabella, offended you? Trouble me not with questions, said Manfred, but tell me where she is. Matilda shall call her, said the Princess — Sit down, my Lord, and your wonted fortitude. Good heavens!
Thou wilt know ere many minutes are passed; said the cruel Prince. Iin your chaplain Lumber hory women Amesbury me, and wait my pleasure here. At these words he flung out of the room in search of Isabella; leaving the amazed Ladies thunder-struck with his words and frantic deportment, and lost in somethng conjectures on what he was meditating.
He ascended the stair-case, without stopping till he arrived at the gallery, at the door of which he met Hippolita and her chaplain. That excellent Lady, otfanto no more than Manfred, doubted of the reality of the vision, yet affected to treat it as a kn of the servant. Willing, however, to save her Lord from any additional shock, and prepared by a series of grief not to tremble at any accession to it; she determined to make herself the first sacrifice, if fate Ladies wants nsa PA Pleasant gap 16823 marked the present hour for their destruction.

The next transition of his soul was to exquisite villainy.
Coming to himself, he gave orders that every avenue to the castle should be strictly guarded, and charged his domestics on pain of their lives to suffer nobody to pass out. The young peasant, to whom he spoke favourably, he ordered to remain in a small chamber on the stairs, in which there was a pallet-bed, and the key of which he took away himself, telling the youth he would talk with him in the morning.
Then dismissing his attendants, and bestowing a fullen kind of half-nod on Hippolita, he for to his own chamber. The shocking fate of her brother had deeply affected her. She was surprized at not seeing Isabella: But the strange words which had fallen from her father, and his obscure menace to the Princess his wife, accompanied by the most furious behaviour, had filled her gentle mind with terror lokking alarm.
She ne anxiously for the return of Bianca, a young otranyo that attended her, whom she had sent to learn what was become of Isabella.

This last circumstance had terrified Bianca so much, that she was rejoiced when Matilda told her that she would not go to rest, but would watch till the Princess should rise.
But looking business could he have so urgent with the chaplain? Madam, said Bianca, now I guess. As you are become his womethng, he is impatient to have you married: He has always been raving for more sons; I warrant he is now impatient for grandsons.

No, Bianca; his Women seeking affair party tonight was ever a stranger to me — but he is my father, and I must not complain.

Bianca, said the Princess, I do not allow you to mention my friend disrespectfully. Isabella is of a chearful disposition, but her soul is pure as virtue itself. She knows your idle babling humour, and perhaps has now and then encouraged it, to divert melancholy, and enliven the solitude in which my father keeps us — Blessed Mary! I did think I heard a voice — but it must be fancy; your terrors, I suppose, have infected me.
Madam, said Bianca, half-weeping with agony, I am sure I heard a voice. Does any body lie in the chamber beneath? I charge you not to stir; said Matilda. If they are spirits in pain, we may ease their sufferings by questioning them. They can mean no hurt to us, for we have not injured them — and if they should, shall we be more safe in one chamber than in another? Reach me my be; we will say a prayer, and then speak to them.

Thy words and accents, said Matilda, are of a melancholy cast: If thou art unhappy, I pity thee.
If poverty afflicts thee, let me know it: I will mention thee to the Princess, whose beneficent soul ever melts for the distressed, and she will relieve thee. I am indeed unhappy, said the stranger; and I know what wealth is: But I do not complain of the lot which heaven has cast for me: I am young and healthy, and am not ashamed of owing my support to myself — yet think me not proud, or that I disdain your generous offers.

It is not fit for me to argue with your Highness, replied Bianca; but perhaps the questions I should have put to him, would foe been more to the purpose, than those you have been pleased to ask him.
