We slipped out of the city in the middle of the night. Elijah, the Purser’s family and myself. Not through either gate. But over the wall via the rooftop of an adjoining building.
Elijah and I have some valuable experience in this regard from our first days together.
We stumbled about a good deal until we discovered at last the road leading to the interior. From there on it was an easy march for all.
We halted at the same place that Mary, the children and I stopped four days ago.
Neither Elijah nor I know which direction we should go next. The Purser is all for striking out straight ahead. But we all agreed to await the Spirit’s leading.
