Belgravia 35 (June), 492

Text illustrated: "'Tie a rope round him; it is dangerous!' cried a soft and anxious voice somewhere above them."

"Everybody turned. The speaker was a woman, gazing down upon the group from an upper window, whose panes blazed in the ruddy glare from the west. Her lips were parted and she appeared for the moment to forget where she was." (493)
