spent whole months in this manner, the one in-
juring, the other complaining; when in the midst
of this rage towards cach other, they were com-
manded upon the attack of the castle, where the
corporal received a shot in the thigh, and fell.
The French pressing on, and he expecting to be
trampled to death, called out to his enemy:
» Ah, Valentine! can you leave me here?" Va-
lentine immediately ran back, and in the midst
of a thick fire of the French, took he corporal
upon his back ; and brought -i) him through all
that danger as far as the Abbey of Salsine, where
a cannon-ball took off his head. His body fell
under his enemy, whom he was carrying off.
Union immediately forgot his wound, rose 5)
up, tearing his hair, and then threw himselif
upon the bleeding carcass, crying: »Ah, Va-
lentine! was it for me, who have so barbarously
used thee, that thou hast died? I will not live
after thee." — He was not by any means to be
forced from the body, but was removed vyith it,
bleeding in his arms, and attended with tears by
all their comrades who knew their enmity. When
he was brought to a tent, his wounds were
dressed by force; but the next day, still calling
upon Valentine, and lamenting his cruelties to
him, he died in the pangs of remorse and despair.

terers, was complimenting him upon his power,
his treasures, and the magnificence of his royal
state; and affirming, that no monarch ever was
greater or happier than he. — »Have you a mind.
