The two officers bowed to the Rani and retraced their steps to the end of the hall.
He drew a dagger from his girdle and offered the handle to the Rani.
Welcome to the palace of the no longer unfortunate Rani of Jhansi.
The Rani slowly raised her hand and held it outstretched before her.
For a moment surprise was depicted on the Rani's face, then she sought his reason.
Thou wilt then follow my steps quickly and silently to the Rani's palace.
A short while since you said the Rani was to be held until she heard your pleasure.
"Gladly will I hear thee, friend Ahmad," acquiesced the Rani.
In her palace the Rani anxiously awaited news of the surrender.
The Foreigners required a further assurance of safety from the Rani.
