It meant nothing to her that they were passing great trees now, and that once they crossed a stream by a wide stone bridge.

But she, unmindful of her own blood, was hastening to launch a boat into the stream that she might rescue a sinking dog on the farther shore. "Ungrateful wretch," I cried aloud on my bed so that I was awakened by my own voice.
