William Johnstone of Wamphray, called the galliard, was a noted freebooter.
To avoid this, galliard had swung him towards the bed, and hurled him on to it.
With his eyes still fixed in a gaze of stupefaction upon galliard's face, Kenneth took the paper.
galliard bowed his head; then, turning, he took the Bible from the table.
Anon they went yet paler than their wont, as galliard rested the point of his sword against the fellow's neck.
Startled by her words and the tone of them, galliard turned his head that he might observe her.
"It is no lie," Joseph cried, in accents so earnest that some of the unbelief passed again from galliard's face.
He realized that he was mastered, and that at any moment galliard might send home his blade.
Then galliard spoke at last, and the mildness of his tone filled Kenneth with a new dread.
Despite himself, galliard winced, and his glance fell before Hogan's.
