Descriptive data for this set (listed below slide images)
Slide 1
I saw the figure of a man coming to them from amongst the trees
Slide 2
There was something most kind and tender in this man's face and voice
Slide 3
Then the man gave them each a small bottle
Slide 4
'And now,' he said, 'farewell; I shall meet again in the happy garden'
Slide 5
He took up stones, and began to throw them
Slide 6
So they walked on together, and began talking as little boys might talk
Slide 7
Lightly he sprang over it, and was setting out on the waste
Slide 8
He stole back again to Edonè and Argia
Slide 9
'So, here is one coming back again!' cried Edonè
Slide 10
So they drove him away, and he wandered very sadly along the path
Slide 11
But it was low now, and there was no danger
Slide 12
He saw a snake lying in the grass, which startled him
Slide 13
He played a few earnest notes upon it
Slide 14
A mighty storm swept by; the rain fell in torrents
Slide 15
Then he thought of his bottle, and he drew it out
Slide 16
Heavily did it beat upon him, as the rain fell in torrents
Slide 17
Another step, and it covered his shoulders, and lifted his feet from the ground
Slide 18
When he reached it, he sunk down upon the grass
Slide 19
Just at this very time Agapè was reaching the golden gates
Slide 20
As he lifted up his eyes to do so, they lighted upon a golden writing
Slide 21
All the wood through did Asthathes keep playing on the flute
Slide 22
He seized the golden knocker
Slide 23
Edonè saw a fierce beast coming nigh to Argia
Slide 24
The beast seized him in his claws, and doubtless tore him to pieces
Slide 25
And began to hurry up the hill in spite of the steepness
