At Salerno they caught a train which enabled them to reach Naples late in the evening. Mallard accompanied his friends to their hotel, and dined with them. As he and Spence were smoking together afterwards, the latter communicated some news which he had reserved for privacy. "By-the-bye, we hear that Cecily and her aunt are at Florence, and are coming to Rome next week." "Elgar with them?"

Ashamed of the mood, he was nevertheless directed by its final shadows to see the ruminating tramp in Gower, and in Madge the prize-fighter's jilt: and round about Esslemont a world eyeing an Earl of Fleetwood, who painted himself the man he was, or was held to be, by getting together such a collection, from the daughter of the Old Buccaneer to the ghastly corpse of Ambrose Mallard.

Mallard is an excellent fellow, in his own way, Somehow I've lost sight of him for a long time. He's painting here, I suppose? Where can I find him?" "I don't know his address, but I can at once get it for you. You are sure that he will welcome you?" "Why not? Have you spoken to him about me?" "No," Miriam replied distantly. "Why shouldn't he welcome me, then? We were very good friends.

Since the death of my child, that is what has weighed upon me most." Mallard reflected upon this. He could easily understand its truth. He felt assured that Miriam suffered in much the same way, having reached the same result by so very different a process of development.

I haven't seen her since; she can't know what the result has been. None of them at Pompeii suspected only a moment of privacy; there's no need to say any more about it." Mallard mused over this revelation. He felt inclined to scorn Elgar for making it. It affected him curiously, and at once took a place among his imaginings of Miriam.

Far up on the heights are other gleaming specks, villages which seem utterly beyond the traffic of man, solitary for ever in sun or mountain mist. Mallard paid little heed to the things about him; he walked on and on, watching for a vehicle, listening for the tread of horses. Sometimes he could see the white road-track miles away, and he strained his eyes in observing it.

Mallard stood reading this inscription, graven on an ancient sarcophagus preserved in the cathedral of Amalfi. A fool, probably, that excellent Rufus he said to himself, but what a happy fool!

And, indeed, it did not much matter now whether he met his friends or not; he had spoken the word to-morrow he would go his way. At the very moment of thinking this thought, when his cigar was nearly finished and he had begun to stretch his limbs, wearied by remaining in one position, shadows and footsteps approached him. He looked up, and "Mr. Mallard! So we have caught you at last!

Mallard and Miss Myra said they would put in a good word for me, seein' as I hadn't no time to do any courtin' myself." "Dick, old son, she's yours! If you have got my sister and Mr. Mallard to speak for you, it's all right that's a dead certainty. How is your leg?" "Bully, boss just bully. Say, boss!" "Yes, Dick." "D'ye think we'll get them missin' horses?" "Horses be hanged!

It was the vessel of Captain Mallard, who, informed of the massacre, was standing along shore in the hope of picking up some of the fugitives. He saw their signals, and sent boats to their rescue; but such was their exhaustion, that, had not the sailors, wading to their armpits among the rushes, borne them out on their shoulders, few could have escaped.
