STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF AENEAS

Then Anchises remembered that the beginning of their nation had been upon the island of Crete. So they offered sacrifices and set sail for Crete. Here they dwelt, but there came a sickness upon the men and a blight upon the harvest so that they hardly knew where to seek for help or where they should go.
One night as Aeneas slept, there appeared to him the household gods that he had carried from the burning ruins of Troy, and they said to him: "It was not Crete that Apollo decreed should be your home, but an ancient land far to the west which men call Italy. Thither sail; there is our home, and there the gods would have us dwell."
So the men of Troy again made ready their ships and departed. When they were out of sight of land, a great storm arose, driving them for many days far from their course. They passed many islands, and when they sailed by Ithaca, they cursed it because it was the home of the hated Ulysses.
After many days of wandering they came to a city ruled over by Helenus, son of King Priam, whose wife was An dromache, the widow of brave Hector. Aeneas met her in a grove by a river, where with many tears she made offerings to the spirit of Hector. She could hardly believe that the one before her was not aa spirit but was indeed Aeneas of Troy. She told how she had been carried from Troy by Pyrrhus, the haughty son of Achilles.
While she spoke, Helenus came with a great company and bade Aeneas and his men welcome. Aeneas saw how everything was planned and named even as it had been at Troy; only the things at Troy had been great, and these
were very small. Afterwards King Helenus made a feast for them in his house, and together they made merry.
When Aeneas saw that the wind favored them, they
