Description

Excerpt from Lola, Vol. 1 of 3: A Tale of the Rock Now it is of metal; its hard, harsh outlines might be of bronze, or a smouldering cinder slag half consumed in the blazing heat. The sun has worked like an opiate to lock up every eye. The semi-spanish natives doze through their midday siesta; the dogs forget to bark; that flag, which has so often braved the battle and the breeze, droops with almost cowardly indolence against its staff; the very sentries beneath their awnings survey the piled-up shot, the heavy guns, and the pow der-houses committed to their charge with a benevolent haziness of vision, which will degenerate ere long into an unmistakable snore, unless roused by the rounds, or the terrible town-major, for' ever on the watch.
