THE FALL OF THE ALAMO

Unwaveringly, till thou hast reached the goal,
And shouldst thou fall, then will thy Elsie's soul
Soar hand in hand with thee the airy flight
To yonder homes of happiness and light,
While in a thankful nation's memory
Thy name and hers live for eternity.

[A long embrace.]

Scene X.

Enters Bradburn with a paper in his hand. He is followed by some Mexican officers, who station themselves on the left side of the stage. Behind them enter Frank W. Johnston, commander of the patriots, Don Lorenzo de Zavala, Wm. H. Jack, and several other patriots, who occupy the right side of the stage, with the table between them and the Mexicans.

Bradburn.

[Who enters a little in advance of the others, steps between Travis and Elsie.]

Part!

Elsie.

[Waving her hand to Travis.]

Fare thee well!
