I'm a friend, I said, if you are --Then advance, sir, to the stair! “I advanced — that sentry, Doctor, was Elijah Ballantyne-- First of all to fall on Monday, after we had formed the line! Welcome! my old sergeant, welcome! Welcome by that countersign! And he pointed to the scar there under this old cloak of mine! “As he grasped my hand, I shuddered — thinking only of the grave-- But he smiled and pointed upward, with a bright and bloodless glaive-- ‘That's the way, sir, to headquarters’--What headquarters! Of the brave! But the great tower? --That was builded of the great deeds of the brave!
