Finally, Lady Eleanore admits to an understanding of her scornful ways and how her attitude brought about the suffering she herself fell victim to.

"The curse of Heaven hath stricken me, because I would not call man my brother, nor woman my sister. I wrapped myself in PRIDE as a MANTLE, and scorned the sympathies of nature; and therefore has nature made this wretched body the medium of a dreadful sympathy. You are avenged-they are all avenged-Nature is avenged-for I am Eleanore Rochcliffe!"
