Excerpt from The Wayside Cross, or the Raid of Gomez: A Tale of the Carlist War
I looked and certainly, at the foot of the cross, on the white soil of the path, appeared a broad, dark, and nearly circular stain, as of blood lately spilt.
Look, Schor I he exclaimed again, that is the blood of a human being; many a time I have passed by this cross, and there, there that accursed spot still is. The rain from heaven will not wash it out, the earth will not hide the horrid deed; often have I seen my mules snort and start aside, as if they saw some thing I could not see, when they came to this spot.
