In truth , who knows truth ? For the light of
revelation shines but In a few places , and for
the rest we are In natural darlOess , groping

Antonio "Alt this , Is foolishness , lena , " said Count

to his vords.
Antonio "It worts. , al foolishness , Tonitnasino . " said
' 'fhey say thaI of many a lhln which gives

"I have heart of this man before , " conlln-

But the wizard trembled stIll , and AnIon 10 ,

Then Count Antonio hell omit his hant to

Now , Coroqua was well taught and skilful ] (
