'Madness! madness, endless remorse must be mine! yes, it was I who destroyed her, withered like the lightning’s blast her fair blooming pros- pects, I blighted her innocent youth, I made a wretch of her I should have worshipped, – who for me sacrificed all – yet she never reproached me; – no – and in return, I persevered – I broke her heart!'
