Rudolf of Hapsburg, with his Castle in the distance. Rudolf, when a simple count, is hunting, after a storm. The mountain torrent has swept away the hand-bridge; a priest sits unable to cross, with the sacrament to a dying man, while the boy at his feet entreats him to go on. Rudolf dismounts, gives his horse to the priest, and on its return refuses to accept it again, as it has been used by his Saviour in the Host. Afterwards, the priest becoming Archbishop of Mayence, and one of the Electors of the German Empire, by his influence procures Rudolf's election as Emperor of all Germany. [P. 8.]
