CHAPTER XIV MARIE Grubbe had never had money of her own, and the possession of a large sum gave her a sense of powers and possibilities without limit. Indeed, it seemed to her that a veritable magic wand had been placed in her hands, and she longed like a child to wave it round and round and bring all the treasures of the earth to her feet. Her most immediate wish was to be far away from the towers of Copenhagen and the meadows of Tjele, from Erik Grubbe and Aunt Rigitze. She waved the wand onc...e, and lo ! she was carried by wheel and keel, over water and way, from the land of Sjselland to Liibeck town. Her whole retinue consisted of the maid Lucie, whom she had per- suaded her aunt to let her have, and a trader's coachman from Aarhus, for the real outfitting for her trip was to be done at Liibeck. It was Sti Hogh who had put into her head the idea of travelling, and in doing .so, he had hinted that he might himself leave the country to seek his fortune abroad, and had offered his services as courier.
