The Betrothed (Manzoni)
FROM THE ITALIAN
RICHARD BENTLEY, 8. NEW BURLINGTON STREET
(SUCCESSOR TO HENRY COLBURN)
BELL AND BRADFUTE, EDINBURGH;
AND CUMMING, DUBLIN.
The street was deserted before him; but,
behind him, the terrible cry still resounded,
"Seize him! stop him! a poisoner!"
So saying, he passed his arm around the neck
of the Unknown, who after resisting a moment,
yielded, quite vanquished by this impulse of
kindness, and fell on the neck of the Cardinal
in an agony of repentence.
