"Neither could they, with all the skill they had, get again to the stile that night. Wherefore, at last, lighting under a little shelter, they sat down there till the day break: but being weary, they fell asleep. Now, there was, not far from the place where they lay, a castle, called doubting castle, the owner whereof was giant despair; and it was on his grounds they were now sleeping. Wherefore he getting up in the morning early, and walking up and down in his fields, caught Christian and hopeful asleep in his grounds. then with a grim and surly voice he bid them awake, and asked them whence they were, and what they did in his grounds. They told him they were pilgrims, and that they had lost their way. Then said the giant, you have this night trespassed on me, by trampling in, and lying on my grounds, and therefore you must go along with me. So they were forced to go because he was stronger than they." [P. 19.]
