"Very well; tell Edward to harness immediately Orion no Plower, to the cabriolet." Boyer bowed respectfully; as he was about to retire, some one knocked at the door. "Come in!" said Florestan. A second valet appeared, holding in his hand a small salver.

King Florestan and his queen sent offerings worthy of their resplendent throne and their invaluable friendship. But nothing surpassed, nothing approached, the contents of a casket, which, a day before the wedding, arrived at Hainault House. It came from a foreign land, and Waldershare superintended the opening of the case, and the appearance of a casket of crimson velvet, with genuine excitement.

In the last scene Don Fernando sets the prisoners free in the name of the king, and among them Florestan. Pizarro is revealed in his true character, and is led away to punishment.

I thought this one was in circulation: it was payable three months after date, at Adams & Co., London?" "Yes, yes," said the clear and sharp voice of Badinot.
