Excerpt from The Siege of Rochelle, or the Christian Heroine, Vol. 3
Can\ any other woman he noticed when you are near? Is it possible, that you have not observed what has been passing in my heart? Did not the knot of ribbons, which I tied upon upon my arm, come from you? Did I not see your hands make it up, and glve 1ti Yes, I repeat, it shall ne ver be torn from me, but with life; I will carry it with me to battle: it is no pledge of love, but I call it a can' quest, and it is to me the atheist of every other. I know to what this bold step ex poses me. How could I but know the height of my offending? I am proud of it. If you are not the sole object of impassioned love throughout the court, it is because no one here dares to raise a wish, or a thought, towards you: but, to a great soul, no glory is too high.-i despise the base and gror.
