The Old English Baron: a Gothic Story eBook

This eBook from the Gutenberg Project consists of approximately 210 pages of information about The Old English Baron.

Father Oswald lived many years in the family as chaplain; he retired from thence at length, and died in his own monastery.

Edmund Lord Lovel lived to old age, in peace, honour and happiness; and died in the arms of his children.

Sir Philip Harclay caused the papers relating to his son’s history to be collected together; the first part of it was written under his own eye in Yorkshire, the subsequent parts by Father Oswald at the Castle of Lovel.  All these, when together, furnish a striking lesson to posterity, of the over-ruling hand of Providence, and the certainty of retribution.
