Dialogue following Song No. 13
And where's the dagger that our Captain plied?
(puzzled) He took it with him, sticking in his side.
(C.) Sancho has gone to betray the band.
He has. Pursue him to the left. (aside) And I'll go to the right.
No. Sooner than fall into the hands of the soldiers, there's the train -
Where? I'll take a ticket immediately.
The train of gunpowder -
Good gracious! (falls against tall Ladrone, R.)
Which our late Captain laid in case of a surprise. To yonder cave we will retire, apply a slow match -
The slower the better.
And all perish together.
'Tis the law of the Ladrones!
All raise arms. Movement towards the Cavern. Enter from Cavern, R. H., Rita.
(innocently) What's going on?
Seize her. (Inez left.) Comrades, the treachery of Sancho is a punishment deserved by us, because we have not avenged the fate of Ferdinand di Roxas. There stands our victim.
