AUTHOR OP "ETHALDI,” “THE OUTCAST," "THE DESERTERS,'' ETC. EN.
“Still question’d me the story of my life,
From year to year; the battles, sieges, fortunes,
That I have pass’d.
I ran it through, even from my boyish days,
To the very moment that he bade me tell it;
Wherein I spoke of most disastrous chances;
Of moving accidents, by flood, and field;
Of hair-breadth 'scapes i' the imminent deailly breach;
Of my being taken by the insolenů fue,
And sold to slavery; of my redemption thence,
And portance in my travels' history;
Wherein of antres vast, and deserts idle,
Rough quarries, rocks and hills whose neads touca huapan,
It was my hint to speak, such was thu press.”
