Leonora D'Orco, Vol. 1 of 3

Excerpt from Leonora D'orco, Vol. 1 of 3: A Historical Romance Wickedness, like virtue, proposes to itself eu joyment for its object; and the Bible is right when, as it often does, it uses the word wisdom as synonymous with virtue, for in the wisdom of the means is the certainty of the attainment. But the men of those days, as if they felt - how could they avoid feeling - the insecurity of the ground on which they based their endeavours for the acquisition of happiness, were content to take the distant and doubtful payment by instal ments of fruition, and let the revel, the pageant, the debauch go to the great reckoning as so much gained, without thinking of the terrible per contra.
