The next morning, crushed and ground and bleeding, he had fallen into that sort of lethargy which resembles sleep much as death resembles repose. Toward eight o'clock, through the cloud which weighed upon his mind and veiled his intellect, he thought that he heard the door of his cell open and saw several men approach him. Soon a sensation altogether material helped to draw him from his torpid state. He felt that he was being vigorously shaken; he opened his eyes, cast an expressionless glance around him, and with a mighty effort succeeded in making out what was going on.
