[73] Cur ea praeterita est. Hero, in all parts of this letter, maintains fully the character she had given herself at first, viz. that of an ardent solicitous lover. She watches times and seasons, and complains if she is disappointed in what she might expect from them. As, the night before, the storm had somewhat abated, she wonders he did not take the opportunity of coming to her.
