THE FALL OF THE ALAMO

Scene VI.

The Mission of Concepcion, situated near San Antonio. The stage represents on one side a narrow corridor running toward the rear and flanked on both sides by the cells, which formerly the Fadres inhabited. In the rear of the corridor,[1] where a narrow hallway joins the former at right angles, stands an altar in a niche. The front of the stage represents a plainly furnished room, with a door leading into the corridor

A Mexican soldier on guard paces up and down the corridor. When Santa Anna arrives, he takes his station opposite to the above-mentioned door, and presents arms.

Santa Anna.

Art thou the sentry o'er the prisoner Travis?

Soldier.

I am, Your Excellency.
