He thrummed his thyrsus as though he struck the strings of a lyre, and, having ended the dumb prelude, he sang: "Wherein hath the knave Caracalla outdone Alexander? He killed a brother, the hero a friend, in his rage."

But verily she would do yet more, and spare him the pains of reading it. Hereupon my brother, in great ire, bid her no longer keep that which was not her own; yet she refused, and whereas Herdegen seized her hand to wrench away the paper she shrieked out to the Bohemian: "Give him his due, for a knave who offends maidens; that outcast for whom I scorned and misprized you!
