Not to-night; For, should you treat me as you did Victorian, And send me back to marry maids forlorn, My wedding day would last from now till Christ-mas. Chispa (within). What ho! the Gypsies, ho I Beltran Cruzado! Halloo! halloo! halloo! halloo! (Enters booted, with a whip and lantern.) Viet. What now? Why such a fearful din? Hast thou been robbed? Chispa. Ay, robbed and murdered; and good evening to you, My worthy masters. Viet. Speak; what brings thee here? Chispa (to Preciosa). Good news from Court; good news! Beltran Cruzado, The Count of the Gales, is not your father, But your true father has returned to Spain Laden with wealth. You are no more a Gypsy. Viet. Strange as a Moorish tale! Chispa. And we have all Been drinking at the tavern to your health, As wells drink in November, when it rains. Viet. Where is the gentleman? Chispa. As the old song says, His body is in Segovia, His soul is in Madrid. Prec. Is this a dream? Oh, if it be a dream, Let me sleep on, and do not wake me yet! Repeat thy story! Say I 'm not deceived!

What more of this strange story?...
