alcalde. She has a heart, if only one can get at it--that is, except 

where Jews and Maranos are concerned," and again he glanced at Castell. 

"Meanwhile, there is money in plenty, and in Spain we ride to heaven on 

gold angels," he added, alluding to that coin and the national 

corruption. 

 

Before they could say more the governor returned, saying that the Senor 

Bernaldez' time was up, and asking if they had finished their talk. 

 

"Not altogether," said Margaret. "Noble Governor, is it permitted that 

the Senor Bernaldez should send me some Christian clothes to wear, for I 

would not appear before your judges in this soiled heathen garb, nor, I 

think, would my father or the Senor Brome?" 

 

The governor laughed, and said he thought that might be arranged, and 

even allowed them another five minutes, while they talked of what these 

clothes should be. Then he departed with Bernaldez, leaving them alone. 

 

It was not until the latter had gone, however, that they remembered that 

they had forgotten to ask him whether he had heard anything of the woman 

Inez, who had been furnished with his address, but, as he had said 

nothing of her, they felt sure that she could not have arrived in 

Seville, and once more were much afraid as to what might have happened 

after they had left Granada. 

 

That night, to their grief and alarm, a new trouble fell on them. Just 

as they finished their supper the governor appeared and said that, by 

order of the Court before which they must be tried, the Senor Brome, 

who was accused of murder, must be separated from them. So, in spite of 

all they could say or do, Peter was led away to a separate cell, leaving 

Margaret weeping.
