up tho few articles sho meant to tako

moro from anxiety than from fear of

Shubal took tho btindlo ot clothing,
nnd then the party moved out from

den, and passed out by tho Btnall gate;
and when they had reached tho street
they led off with a quick step. There
was a sentinel at tho city gate, but
ho did not trouble thoao who pasaeil
