Context

“«Alas!» said Rebecca, «I know it but too well—dare I trust thee?»
«May my arms be reversed, and my name dishonoured,» said Brian de Bois-Guilbert, «if thou shalt have reason to complain of me! Many a law, many a commandment have I broken, but my word never.»
«I will then trust thee,» said Rebecca, «thus far;» and she descended from the verge of the battlement, but remained standing close by one of the embrasures, or «machicolles», as they were then called.—«Here,» she said, «I take my stand.” source
