I am ignorant how he accomplished it, or if he had any affiftance, but fome I believe he muft have had. He got out of the town on foot, clad in a miferable jerkin, and when in the fields was quite joyous, as he might then fay he had efcap-ed from the utmost peril. He wandered about at first, and came to a thorn bush, to confider whither he should go ; for he was unacquainted with the roads or country, having never before travelled on foot.
