5. The Provoste gaining no other grace at this time, would not sogive over for this first repulse, but pursuing her still withunbeseeming importunity; many private meanes he used to her byLetters, tokens, and insinuating ambassages; yea, whensoever shee cameto the Church, he never ceased his wearisome solicitings. Whereatshe growing greatly offended, and perceyving no likelyhood of hisdesisting; became so tyred with his tedious suite, that she consideredwith her selfe, how she might dispatch him as he deserved, because shesaw no other remedy. Yet shee would not attempte anie thing in thiscase, without acquainting her Bretheren first therwith. And havingtolde them, how much shee was importuned by the Provost, and also whatcourse she meant to take (wherin they both counselled and encouragedher:) within a few daies after, shee went to Church as she was wont todo; where so soone as the Provost espyed her: forthwith he came toher, and according to his continued course, he fell into his amorouscourting. She looking upon him with a smiling countenance, and walkingaside with him out of any hearing: after he had spent many impertinentspeeches, shee (venting foorth manie a vehement sighe) at lengthreturned him this answer.
4.‘I will do whatever I can,’ she said. ‘I will plead your cause all I can. I will promise,—oh, yes! Mr. Renton, I promise,’ she cried, eagerly. He had even, as he stooped towards her, touched the price,—as she thought,—of the promise with his sleeve.
5. Every one obeyed. For a man who, like Franz, viewed hisposition in its true light, it was a grave one. He was alonein the darkness with sailors whom he did not know, and whohad no reason to be devoted to him; who knew that he hadseveral thousand francs in his belt, and who had oftenexamined his weapons, -- which were very beautiful, -- ifnot with envy, at least with curiosity. On the other hand,he was about to land, without any other escort than thesemen, on an island which had, indeed, a very religious name,but which did not seem to Franz likely to afford him muchhospitality, thanks to the smugglers and bandits. Thehistory of the scuttled vessels, which had appearedimprobable during the day, seemed very probable at night;placed as he was between two possible sources of danger, hekept his eye on the crew, and his gun in his hand. Thesailors had again hoisted sail, and the vessel was once morecleaving the waves. Through the darkness Franz, whose eyeswere now more accustomed to it, could see the looming shorealong which the boat was sailing, and then, as they roundeda rocky point, he saw the fire more brilliant than ever, andabout it five or six persons seated. The blaze illumined thesea for a hundred paces around. Gaetano skirted the light,carefully keeping the boat in the shadow; then, when theywere opposite the fire, he steered to the centre of thecircle, singing a fishing song, of which his companions sungthe chorus. At the first words of the song the men seatedround the fire arose and approached the landing-place, theireyes fixed on the boat, evidently seeking to know who thenew-comers were and what were their intentions. They soonappeared satisfied and returned (with the exception of one,who remained at the shore) to their fire, at which thecarcass of a goat was roasting. When the boat was withintwenty paces of the shore, the man on the beach, who carrieda carbine, presented arms after the manner of a sentinel,and cried, "Who comes there?" in Sardinian. Franz coollycocked both barrels. Gaetano then exchanged a few words withthis man which the traveller did not understand, but whichevidently concerned him. "Will your excellency give yourname, or remain incognito?" asked the captain.
6."Goodness knows: I don't," returned Adam. "My opinion is, that I must in some way have given my inside a deuce of a wrench. I don't tell Rose that: she'd set on and worry herself."
