From the high tower overlooking the sea the Duke watches as the fleet ventures forth. He is wracked with doubt, going over in his mind the letters from Gallia.The tower door creaks open and the Duchess appears wrapped in a cloak. She walks over to him and stands with him in companionable silence, each lost in their own thoughts...
