almost his heart failed him, almost he refused to go. Then he

stairs to her chamber, and there wept herself to sleep. 

 

Castell watched her depart, then muttered to himself: 

 

"Pray God she is not foresighted like so many of our race; and yet why 

is my own heart so heavy? Well, according to my judgment, I have done my 

best for him and her, and for myself I care nothing."
