The one- time engineer left the boat from Africa at Valencia,
passed the night at an inn not far from the railroad station, and early next morning took the train which was to carry him to Ecks.
If you had the heart to do so, Valencia,
he has not lost much in losing you!
This morning I sent Valencia
to learn the truth, and if you were in danger- Perhaps I could have done little, but I should have tried to save you, he added simply.
