Delamere had taken no precaution to secure horses on the road; and it was not till after waiting some hours that be procured four from Barnet. When they arrived there, it was past one o’clock; and Emmeline, who had gone thro’ a very fatigueing day, and was now overcome with the terror and alarm of being thus hastily snatched away, could hardly sit up. She was without an hat; and having no change of cloaths, urged the inconvenience she must endure by being forced to go a long journey so situated. She wished to have stopped at the first stage; but Delamere thought, that in her present temper to hesitate was to lose her. He consented however to go for a moment into the house, where, while he gave a servant orders to go on to Hatfield to bespeak four horses, she drank a glass of water.
