"TO 81'EAK HIS THOUGHTS IS EVERY FREEMAN'S RlGHT."—Thomas Jefferson.
TUNKHANNOCK, PA., WEDNESDAY, MARCH 15, 1865.
From the Saturday Evening Post,
AND WHAT CAME OF IT.
BY BELLA Z. SPENCER.
One stormy evening this winter, we were
sitting in my room before a glowing grate-
Mrs. Grant and I —she talking, I listen ng,
while the wind whistled and the windows
shook dismally. I seem to see her now as
she leaned back in my great easy chair, her
feet upon a stool, and the two fair little hands
that looked like a child's folded over the cap
lightly. The picture was both pretty and
touching. Though quite old, she bore few
traces of age. Her face was smooth and soft
her hair black and shining, neatly folded
away under a charming little lace cap, trim
med with purple ribbons. There was a smile
upon her lips as she ceased speaking and
sank back as I have described her, but tears
were on her cheeks, shining like dew below
ber spectacles. Since that evening I have of
•en recalled her in just, t hat position, calm
and exquisite in every detail of feature and
dress. The quikensh style she assumed,
became her better than any one I ever saw,
and as she was a special favorite of mine, ]
-oppose I may be pardoned for saying she
looked perfectly beautiful, though tnawy who
knew In r but slightly, failed to understand
•ll> enthusiastic admiration, and seldom failed
to teaze me if I spoke of her, about my pen
-1 hunt for old ladies.
Bhe had been telling tne a long story—a
story that the world would sneer at as the
(•n ation of a morbid imagmati >n, were I to
write it. Step by step she led tne up tfcro'
the flowery paths of youth to womanhood,
where the clouds lowered aud storms broke
mercilessly over her head. 1 understood now
why she was so gentle and serene, why her
character was so spotlessly pure and lovable
in her old age. She had passed through the
fires of afflict ion (early, and all the dress of
her nature had been consumed. From that
fine she went on her way so calmly, so qui
etly, that old Time in tender pity, tempered
the weight of his touch to feathery lightness,
so that the evening of lift found her unbound
in foim, and as fresh in appearance as many a
woman at forty.
Presently the little clock upon the mantel
chimed the hour,and as the tenth stroke tang
clear and sweet through the chamber, she
rose smilingly and held out her hand.
'Ten o'clock, and I have kept you from
your writing all the evening. It is t>o bad.
I am afraid, too, that 1 have saddened you
D>> not think abo if it, chi d. I am much
better and happit r for what has happened to
me. Bitter lessons are often needed <0 teach
us how to live, and nunc were such as t were
necessary for my good. I would not have it
otherwise. Why 1 have told you my histo
ry, 1 cannot tell. This is the first time I
indulged in retrospecting the Past for thirty
years, and why the impulse should have come
upon me, is a question I cannot answer.—
Perhaps there was a purpose in it—who
knows, and j*ou will remember my experi
ences to your own advantage sometimes.
Good-night, dear, ard God bless you."
She came to tr.y side, bent to kiss my fore
head tenderly; then as if impelled by a stron
ger impulse, caught me close to her bosom
anl pressed kiss after kiss upon my lips.—
IR" breath fanned my face, fragrant as a
child's, and her little hands were so velvety
in their touch, I could not forget the sensa
tion for a long time after 6he left the room
with that sweet smile upon her lips, and a
repetion of her "good-night" in tenderer,raore
I took the chair she had vacated, after lis
tening to her steps as she glided down the
hall, and turning the gas jet around, so as to
fall properly upon my book, began to read
I must have grown sleepy very soon, for it
was only eleven o,clock when 1 awoke from
a slumber to find the book had fallen to the
floor, and with cold perspiration drenching
my face and hiir. I ha 1 been dreaming of
Mr- Grant, and what I suffered in that
dream is beyond the power of description.
In this dream I seemed to be staning in
the shadow af a stately house, totally strange
ti me. No remembrance of the people or
place familiarized a 6ingle scene ; but as I
paced back and forth upon a terrace,a strange
HI n passed me, his face grave and gloomy,
nd his manner singularly expressive of dis
S on crowds of people began to gather up~
• 111 the terrace, and I turned to tho strang-r
to ask him what it meant.
"There is to be an execution," he replied,
" A woman has been condemned to death."
1 turned from the spot, intending to avoid
the scene, but he commanded me sternly to
remain where 1 was, and 1 Lad no power to
Standing there in the shadow, mute and
cold with the dread and horror that had seiz
me. I heard the suund of measured steps,
and slow, sad music swept through the place
like a requiem. It is singular how distinct
and impressive the details ofdreams often are;
and in that moment 1 recognized the notes of
the air performed, which was like a funeral
chant—eonld count my own heart-beats, hear
the measured (oot6teps upon a marble pave*
ment, and see the eager, yet sad and gloomy
faces of those who waited for what was com
I saw, as T watched the crowd, that the
people all seemed te be Catholic's, and the
man who spoke to me, a priest. Catching
my eye, he came close to my side, and 6atd
"This wotnarf who is to die has violated her
faith in a manner which forces the Church
to strangle her. Death is attached to her
crime as its sole penalty, and there is no help
for her this side of Heaven."
He bowed his head and groaned so bitterly
that I asked in pity.
"Is she anything to you
"My mother! Oh.|rny mother ;"'was the
repiy uttered through sobt like an appeal,
and then I saw the tears falling like rain over
his pale cheeks
The next moment he advanced toward a
platform around which clustered some nuns,
and one or two priests, Between two of the
nuns stood a woman robed in white, and as
she turned in mounting the platform, 1 saw
the features of Mrs, Grey.
A cry of dismiy died in my throat, and I
tried to spring forward, but could not. Her
eyes were fixed upon mine for one ra uneut,
with an expression of terror and agony, as i!
she would implore my aid, but the next in
stant, the distress all faded and gave place t<>
that same sweet smife which had lingered
around her lips in parting only a little while
before, and she knelt meekly to receive her
I was conscious of surprise in my dream,
for until that moment I had not known that
she was a Catholic. She had never said
anything to lead me to suppose she belong
ed to the church, 12nd I wondered at it for I
had known her a long time. Afterwards, in
my waking hours, tht same surprise seized
me when 1 learned that she was a CatnolAc
in truth, and had been for many years.
After kneeling with her face still turned to
nie, she folded the fair little hands quietly
over her bosom, while two of the nuns placed
a long white scarf about her neck, crossing
the ends and each holding one at the side
while they began slowly to tighten it.
As the pressure became stronger, cries of
agony escaped her. I can never forget the
horrors of that death struggle, so fearfully
distitiPT in every detail. To me an eternity
of misery was embodied in it. while I was
utterly incapable of moving from the spo*.
Gradually her struggles ceased, and her
face grew pale as marble. 1 wondered at
that, for I thought in strangulation the face
must grow black ; but her features were as
pallid as snow, while no trace of the agony
seemed to linger upon it.
Slowly her form began to sink backward
then the nuns would loose the scarf wilh a
refinement of cruelty, until life began tore
turn, when ihey would again tighten it with
savage pleasure shiniue from their glittering
A1 length it was over. I stepped forward
to look upon her dead face, wearing that
sweet smile "at the last, so winning, so touch
ing in its gentle beauty, that my tears fell
fast over the mass of daik hair scattered over
her bosom. With a loving intensity of feel
ing never exceeded in waking moments, I
pressed the dark frir.ged lids over the blue
eyes, and stooped to kiss her as she had
kissed me, with a full heart. As I raised my
head, all the crowd had vanished, and the
dark browed stranger 6tood alone by the
dead woman's side.
"May God bless you !" he said, in a low,
husky voice, and with his pitifully sorrowful
eyes haunting me, I stole qu'etlj away, leav
ing him alone. I had just passed beyond a
wide gate, under a solemn looking arch, when
the horror of the scene I had witnessed
seemed to rush upvin me with redoubled
power, and I awoke to find myself cold, trem
bling, and drenched with the dews of agony.
For some time after waking, I sat still and
thought over this singularly fearful dream.
I had not been reading anything to suggest it
before sleeping. Nor was there a word in
Mrs. Grant's story of an hour previous, to
superintend anything so frightful in connec
tion with it. Nothing had occurred within
my recollection to give rise to such a freak
of the imagination ; so as I sat pondering
this dream, my heart heavy to aching, I dis
carded my old theory of dreams in which I
insisted they were but reproductions of
former events or a carrying out of that on
which the mind was previously occupied in
the hours of sleep.
It was quite late when I retired, and, nat
urallv enough I slept badly. When morn
ing dawned, I rose quite weary, and went
out for a walk by sunrise in the hope of shak
ing 1 ff the itnpi esstous which hung so heavily
upon my mind.
The snow lay whitely over roof and pave
ment as I walked, but I did not heed- The
bracing, frosty air and bright sunlight upon
gleaming icicles fringing the eaves of each
house, seemed to give me new life and I
walked until weary, then went home for a
As I left the table to go to my room, a
girl came to my 6ide and whispered :
"Mrs. Grant is very ill, and has asked for
you several times. I knocked at your door
but got no aoiwer, and we could oot find
you in the house."
"I vriTYgo up at once," I said, with a sick
ening sensation at heart, and a moment lat
er I sttod at her door.
As I entered the room, the feeling of hor
ror so terrible to sustain in my dream came
over me, for there stood a priest and two
Si6ters of Charity by Mrs. Grant's bed
The Sisters supported her upon either side,
while her dark hair fell upon her shoulders
over her white night robe. It was the same
picture I had seen in my dream as the nuns
placed heron the platform, and the look she
gave me as her eyes feel upon me in enter
ing, was the same, half agony, half ter*
ror, fading away into the beautiful smile o
I stood still, spell bound and mute, unable
to move a limb in the strange sensation
which quivered through every nerve. And
as I stood rooted to the spot, a spasm seized
her in which the same gurgling cries of stran
gulation and the fearful death struggle were
reproduced. When it was over, she sank
back upon the pillows, wtnte and still, and an
impulse drew me to her side. I bent over
the beloved form while my tears fell upon
her hair, and lovingly closed the sweet blue
1-yes, while her features sealed into that
ca'ra. smiling repose, which I remembered
so well. When I looked up the sisters had
withdrawn and only the priest remained,
standing near me with folded arms and sor
''You have been kind to her, and she lov
ed you," he said gently and in a low tore.
'•God bless you !" And I saw that his tears ,
flowed freely. I could not resist the impulse
and turned to him with the question:
"What is she to you 1"
"She was my mother," he answered sor
rowfully, "but now she is an angel in Heav
"I did not know she had a son," I respond
ed in bewilderment. "She told me that her
only child, a son, was lost in Infancy."
"Yes, lost to her. f was but a child when
my father gave me ot the church, and from
that day I was as wholly lost to her as if the
grave had closed over me. In late years I
have watched over her, since my father died,
but she did not know it. To tlie moment of
her death, she knew me not as a son, but a
father confessor only. I would not bring
back painful regrets and bitter sufferings to
disturb her declining years, by a revelation
of the truth, so she rests sweetly at last,
and one great solace of my own life is gone.
It was a comfort to watch over tny mother's
I asked no more questions. All he said
bore the stamp of sincerity, an d 1 could doubt
nothing, however strange, under these
strangj circumstances. But this dream and
what followed, have left upon ray mind im
pressions which can pass away only with
uiy own life.
