Several years ago Bill McCracken lived in Peru, Indiana. McCracken was a screamer, and had whipped all the recognized fighting men on the Wabash.

What of Anne Devlin, Emmet's faithful servant, helping in his preparations for insurrection, aiding his flight, shielding him in hiding, even when tortured, scourged, half-hanged by a brutal soldiery, with stern-shut lips refusing to utter a word to compromise her "Master Robert"?
