    It was clear that to succeed I must obtain admission to the house, which was garrisoned, according to my instructions, by two or three old men-servants only, and as many women; since Madame, to disguise her husband's visits the more easily, lived, and gave out that she lived, in great retirement. Evidently his suspicions were again aroused, for from this time he managed to be with me, on one pretence or another until noon. I ascended to it by a ladder; my cloak and a little fern formed my only bed. I could say no more. I felt myself grow hot at the thought--it seemed so full of promise, yet so doubtful--and, on the instant, without giving myself time to think too much, I began to carry it into effect. We lay that night at Auch, and I gave M.

    But the man—this man, needed no surroundings. It was a critical moment. There were no other guests; which made the separation between us more marked. I had never from the first liked the work, but I had had no choice, and I had no choice now. France, power, pleasure, life, everything worth winning, worth having, lay yonder in the great city.

    And you will swing for him! You do not know his story? Tell me instead which of my friends left it. He was a fair-haired man, half-Basque, half-Frenchman, and had scanned me well, I was sure, through some window or peephole; for when he came out he betrayed no surprise at the sight of a well-dressed stranger—a portent in that out-of-the-way village—but eyed me with a kind of sullen reserve. Go to bed, man!

Under the Red Robe book

God assures them that the wicked will be punished and, by inference, that their bodies will be resurrected and they will be rewarded. The porter, on the other hand, who held the keys, would not.

UNDER THE RED ROBE

I will give you one more chance—though it is a desperate one. He was a tall man, of a slender, handsome presence, and, though his dress was plain and almost rough, I espied a splendid jewel on his hand, and fancied that I detected other signs of high quality.

I turned my horse straight at the steep bank, and he breasted it. And that head--never did living man show a face so like death. There was queer talk round the hearth here, of doings in Paris, of a stir against the Cardinal with the Queen-mother at bottom, and of grounded expectations that something might this time come of it.

I saw I dared not. He was gone, and it was evident that the others no longer feared me; for while I gazed the landlord came out to them with another lanthorn swinging in his hand, and said something to the lady, and she looked up at my window and laughed.

When I awoke the room was full of grey light, the door stood open, and Louis, looking ashamed of himself, waited by my pallet with a cup of wine in his hand, and some bread and fruit on a platter.

It was a critical moment. I secured for them a table by the fire, and leaving them standing by it, retired myself to a smaller one near the door. I was in the house.

Under Red Robe by Weyman Stanley

The cottages, which were no more than mean, small huts, ran in a straggling double line, with many gaps—through fallen trees and ill-cleared meadows.

But his eyes gleamed spitefully in their deep sockets, and he laughed with his fleshless lips; and I hated him. I am afraid, Monsieur, that you are hurt. There was but one way.

But the man, the man I wanted to see, was no longer there. But the troubles of the times --however, you will excuse what is lacking. I could not see through the barred window, but I could hear the boughs sweep it in ghostly fashion; and I guessed that it looked out where the wood grew close to the walls of the house, and that even in the day the sun never peeped through it.View Under the Red Robe,directed by Victor Seastrom, with Conrad Veidt, Annabella, Raymond Massey, in its original aspect ratio.
