Vide 41. 2'2 x 2'7. Spalatro was employed by Schedoni to murder Ellena the heroine of Mrs. Radcliffe's Romance, "The Italian." The time fixed for this deed is night, while the victim is asleep; but on his way to her chamber the assassin's heart fails him; he refuses to commit the deed. At that moment of compunction, his former crimes crowd upon his memory, and a bloody hand in the air seems to beckon to him. Vide Mrs. Radcliffe's Novel, "The Italian," chap. 20. [P. 22; see entry 02150041 for other work noted in this commentary.]
