ed to joy and relief on the part of Leonora, who clung to her restored lover with trusting arms; and when the Count realised that the hated rival, whom he had left for dead upon the field of battle, was still alive, he was filled with disappointment and jealous despair.
Wildly, he ordered his men to attack the newcomer; but at the same time, a large troop of the enemy’s soldiers, led by the officer, Ruiz, rode up to the help of Manrico. Seeing that further resistance was 海纳百川4楼全套多少钱 useless, the Count was compelled to retire; and since Leonora had no longer any desire to take convent vows, now that her lover was restored to her, Manrico joyfully led her away to the
