The Company Returned To The Tavern, For They Could Not Leave It Before The Storm Should Subside.

They resumed their seats and gazed on each other with dismay.

The whole transaction had not occupied five minutes and not a dozen words had been spoken. When they looked at the oaken chair they could scarcely realize the fact that the strange being who had so lately tenanted it, full of life and Herculean vigor, should already be a corpse. There was the very glass he had just drunk from; there lay the ashes from the pipe which he had smoked as it were with his last breath. As the worthy burghers pondered on these things, they felt a terrible conviction of the uncertainty of human existence, and each felt as if the ground on which he stood was rendered less stable by this awful example.

The landlord was happy that the poor dear man had paid his reckoning before he went.
