We have a journey to make. Sarah!'—this to his wife, for by this time we were beside the wagon,—'lift up the flap and hold the youngster's hand out. Here's a doctor who will tell us if it's fever or not.' A puny hand and wrist were thrust out. I felt the pulse and then held out my arms. 'Give me the child,' I commanded.

He does not strike an attitude, and lift up his head in preparation, and, as it were, clear his throat; but sits there on a log and pours out his music, looking straight before him, or even down at the ground.

A new attack was momentarily expected, and no one moved from the ranks to succor the wounded or lift up the dead.

To perform this feat, a rider would of course have to dismount, which would be very awkward, if a lady ...
