50              UNCLE TOM'S CABIN; OR
" And now," said Eliza, as she stood in the door, " I saw my husband only this afternoon, and I little knew then what was to come. They have pushed him to the very last standing-place, and he told me, to-day, that he was going to run away. Do try, if you can, to get word to him. Tell him how I went, and why I went; and tell him I 'm going to try and find Canada. You must give my love to him, and tell him, if I never see him again," — she turned awav, and stood with her back to them for a moment, and then added, in a husky voice, " tell him to be as good as he can, and try and meet me in the king­dom of heaven."
" Call Bruno in there," she added. " Shut the door on him, poor beast! He mast n't go with me ! "
A few last words and tears, a few simple adieus and blessings, and, clasping her wondering and affrighted child in her arms, she glided noiselessly away.
