The Innkeeper of Abbeville free pdf Excerpt from The Innkeeper of Abbeville It is surprising with what complacency we sit and see a murder committed how coolly we become accessories both before and after the act, Leave thy damnable faces, and begin! we involuntarily exclaim, when the levelled pistol and drawn dagger indicate a deed of dreadful note, which, if dexterously done, how heartily we applaud! If it ever be our fate to melodramatize, ( to what base uses may we not return, Horatio?) the public may anticipate a rich feast of amusement in this way. Our scale of theatrical homicides is regularly laid down- and it shall go hard if one of the dramatis personae outlive the scene, the author being resolved to reserve to himsef the sole benefit of survivorship. Baron Idenderg and his sister, the Lady Emma, being on their way to Abbeville, stop at an inn, the Henri Quarlre, kept by Clauson, a veteran soldier, Ozzrand, an orphan boy in the service of Clauson. having been betrayed into evil courses by Dyrkile, a pilfering vagabond, who inherits the nimbleness of his fingers from his deceased grandmother, has entered into a plot to carry off the plate of his benefactor that very night, and share the spoil with his tempter. Dyrkile, in his rambles, seeing Charles (a young villager who is about to wed Louise, the daughter of Clauson) conducting two strangers, richly dressed, through the forest to the inn, persuades his young protese to kill two birds with one stone, and rob the travellers into the bargain. Afier some hesitation, Ozzrand consents: he enters at midnight the chamber where the baron reposes, seizes his sword, and i=: about to purloin a silver cnp from the cihiriet, when Idenbersr, vviio had been between waking and sleeping, starts up, and seizes the robber. Dyrkile ruslies forward to the rescue of his accomplice, stabs the baron, wipes the bloody dagger on a cloak belonging to Clauson, and effects his escape. Day breaks, and Louisa enters, to prepare coffee for tlie baroa she recounts the violence of the late storm= 1 heard the owls screari!, and the crickets cry.
