鈥極ur fear is that the heathen are starving B鈥攏 and his three children to death! One poor lamb is but a few months old. If I were a man, I would be off to Batala. My friend Mr. H. has written a strong note to an English official at no great distance from Batala,鈥攖here not one Englishman resides,鈥攁nd I feel little doubt that he will bring the strong arm of the law to protect B鈥攏. But the note will not reach till this evening. For eight days B鈥攏 will have been in the fiery furnace. How long can he hold out?鈥? Charles. [Retreating a step.] Does it?
