At this point Gabriel's glory fades, he forfeits my interest. In the beginning a dark stranger appearing out of the south, touched with the magic of death and dreams, now he becomes merely another squire and country gent, a name in a parish register, a part of the past.

I wandered farther then, by unknown ways, and soon I heard Mama's voice hallooing here and there, each cry a little closer.
