Too often had that good lady caft herfelf at her lord's feet, faying, with uplifted hands,—c Ah, my lord, you allow yourfelf to be fwayed wrongly finfully, by the envious md difappointed, who poifon your mind with tales againft this valiant knight, and virtuous man, the lord de la Riviere.

He is, whoever may fay ^ thç contrary, a moft loyal and prudent knight.
