Louisa Again Promised She Would Do Her Utmost To Keep Them From Thinking She Even Suspected They Had Played Her False; - Then Cried, But Tell Me, My Dear Leonora, Were They Not A Little Moved At The Tender Melancholy Which, I Perceive, Ran Thro' This Epistle?


My dear, replied the other, they have long since forgot those soft emotions which make us simpathize in the woes of love: - inflexible by the rigid rules of this place, and more by their own age, they rather looked with horror than pity on a tender inclination: - they had a long conversation together, the result of which was to spare nothing that might either persuade, or if that failed, compel you to take the order.

It is not in their power to do the latter, interrupted Louisa; and this discovery of their baseness, more than ever, confirms me in the resolution never to consent.

You know not what is in their power, said Leonora; they may make pretences for confining you here, which, as they are under no jurisdiction but the church, the church will allow justifiable: - indeed, Louisa, continued she, I should be loth to see you have recourse to force to get out of their hands which would only occasion you ill treatment: - to whom, alas, can you complain! - you are a stranger in this country, without any one friend to espouse your cause: - were even Du Plessis here in person, I know not, as they have taken it into their heads to keep you here, if all he could urge, either to the pope or confessory, would have any weight to oblige them to relinquish you.
