THE MADNESS OF MERCY
By MAJOR MARTIN A. S. HUME.
(ERCY NEWDIGATE! The name that once was mine
sounds strangely familiar to me still, though many long years have passed since I bore it.
As I draw nearer to the grave under the cypress in the convent garden below my cell-window, all my later life for the last thirty years here in tawny Spain grows dim and shadowy, whilst ever clearer before me rise the thoughts and memories of my old home in leafy England, the ruddy English faces, the soft English voices, and the kindly English speech, which I have never forgotten through all my trouble. And when I die, as I soon must, I would fain that my poor storm-tossed soul might first speed back to my own kin whom I have so bitterly wronged, and seek for God's pardon amidst the gentle scenes my earthly eyes may look upon no more.
