Slipping out, she ran down and, finding a servant, asked if he could get her a carriage.
The carriage lamps cast rays of light a little distance ahead of them and she caught glimpses of the things they passed.
The carriage twice crossed the stream before the coachman made his way through the grounds into a dreary inclosure of stone.
When the heavy drag had been adjusted to the wheel, and the carriage slid down hill, with a cinderous smell, in a cloud of dust, the red glow departed quickly; the sun and the Marquis going down together, there was no glow left when the drag was taken off.
He had shown no emotion of any kind, either at Philippe's danger, or at the fight which ended in the pillage of the carriage and their expulsion from it.
