"Now all this while poor mercy did stand without, trembling and crying, for fear that she was rejected. But when Christiana had got admittance for herself and her boys, then she began to make intercession for mercy. " And she said, my Lord, I have a companion of mine that stands yet without, that is come hither upon the same account as myself, one that is much dejected in her mind, for that she comes as she thinks, without sending for; whereas I was sent for by my husband's king to come. " Now mercy began to be very impatient, and each minute was as long to her as an hour; wherefore she prevented Christiana from a fuller interceding for her, by knocking at the gate herself. And she knocked then so loud, that she made Christiana to start. Then said the keeper of the gate, who is there. And Christiana said, it is my friend. " So he opened the gate, and looked out, but mercy was fallen down without in a swoon, for she fainted, and was afraid that no gate should be opened for her. " Then he took her by the hand, and said, damsel, I bid thee arise." [P. 25.]
