"It was much too dark for any one to see where they were going, so that it seemed more by instinct than anything else that the boat touched the shore at the very spot where they had been taken in that morning. The boatmen, paid off, returned to spend their evening in Purgatory, while the remaining four picked out, as best they might, the pilgrim's track to Pettigoe.

This task was soon rendered less difficult by the rising of the moon, which, though six days past its full, threw quite sufficient light, not only to direct their steps, but also to reveal once more, under a different aspect, the wild beauties of the place."
