Not illustrated. 1911 edition. Excerpt: ...replies: In the mean time think not of Parisatis: For if thou dost, by Jupiter Amman, By my own Head, and by King Philip's Soul, I'le not respect that Blood of mine thou shar'st, But use thee as the vilest Macedonian. I never failed of my obedience to your Majesty, while you required no other proofs of it, but such as were within my power; and Hephestion never obeyed you more readily than I, whenso're you commanded us to assault a wall, or charge into a Battalion; when you forbad me to love Parisatis, I confess I disobeyed you, as I should have done the Gods themselves, if they had imposed the same command upon me. In the mean time I forbid you.... ever to look upon Parisatis; and I protest to you by Jupiter Hammon, and by the soul of King Philip, that if you disobey what I command, by all the authority I have over you, I will have no respect at all unto your birth, but will submit you to the severity of our Laws, as the meanest Macedonian. At the point where Alexander commands the guards to take Lysimachus prisoner, Lee follows La Calprenede closely. If he did not write with the romance before him, he certainly carried to the writing a vivid recollection of it, as the following parallels will indicate. The Rival Queens, p. 25 Alexander. I charge you, kill him not, take him alive; The dignity of Kings is now concern'd, And I will find a way to tame this Beast. Sure we, at last, shall conquer this fierce Lion: Hence from my sight, and bear him to a Dungeon: Perdiccas give this Lion to a Lion. Cassandra, p. 141.... commanding me to be taken alive.... he said thus..... The dignity of all Kings is concerned in my affront..... I will find out punishments which shall be able to tame this rage Lysimachus is more
