THE DANCE OF DEATH. 49 PLATE XV.THE FRIAR PROVISOR. And he saved them from the hand of him that hated them, and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy. Psalm cvi. 10. As he is just stepping into his convent,, with his Christmas-box and wallet, Death stops him at the door; and deaf to his cries, as well as regardless of the fright he throws him into, drags him with all his might by the cloak, and renders all the good Friar's attempts to disengage himself ineffectual. PLANCHE XV.LE FRERE QUETEUR. Pret a rentrerdans son couvent avec sa tire-lire & sa besace, la Mort l'arrete a la porte, & toute aussi sourde a ses cris, qu'insensible a l'ef-froi qu'elle lui cause, elle le tire de toutes ses forces par son capuchon, & rend impuissans les efforts du bon Frere pour se derober de ses mains.
