Not illustrated. 1890 edition. Excerpt: all thy men away. Pal. He dare not give the word. Mar. How know'st thou that? Pal. I have sprung a cranny in his council-board, Thro' which crumbs fall to me. Mar. Nay, but you force him.. The viceroy to yield up his power to a rebel! Hugo, his person to your hated hands! Pal. Well, he may fly; and then my word is, Sack And fire the palace. Mar. Giovanni, if he fight, Thou wilt be killed or taken. Pal. And what of that? Mar. What, askest thou! ask what! Melhinks the world Holds but one treasure--thee: and thou dost wrong Creation, staking all her store at once On such a sleight of fortune. It shall not be. Nay, for my sake it shall not. Dost thou love me? Pal. Love thee? O, Margaret, when I look on thee, And see the dazzling wealth, with which I hardly Shall scrape to heaven, may God forgive me, love, But I would be for ever pinched in hell, Rather than miss thee. Afar. To me art thou as precious: Therefore be wise. Where is the list of names? Pal. 'Tis here. Mar. What read I here? These are thy captains, Palicio: these thy rivals, Margaret! Why, 'mongst these names--nay, tho' I here see names Renowned for outrage--there is not one name Of such respect, that I can think it possible Its leadership can bid thee cast away Thy life, my life, our love. Pal. They are all brave men. Mar. They are ignorant, desperate, and reckless men. Pal. 'Tis by such recklessness I come at right. Mar. 'Tis recklessness throughout. See, thou art wounded And weak; a price upon thy head: think of it, --And trust the people's rights to Manuel; Leave them to the barons: we've a better task: Sail o'er to Rome, there reassume thy rank; Let us be married, and await the day That Manuel finds thy pardon. Pal. Tempt me not, Margaret. Mar. Else are we lost. Pal. Nay, more
