ALEXANDER MARKHAM, Esq.

“ Did'st thou but know what damned injuries,

What foul, unknightly shame and obloquy,
His sire-whose name is wormwood to my mouth-
Did heap upon our house. Did'st thou but know-
No matter--life is revenge! revenge is life!
And though we never meet again, when thou
Shalt hear of the most fearful deed of daring,
Of the most horrible and bloody tale
That ever graced a beldame's midnight legend,
Or froze her gaping listeners, think of me
And my revenge!"
