daughter of the commandante. The doom of both is upon them at once. They have drunk the pois- oned cup. Rezanov resists the first approaches of the delightful delirium, remembering Russia, his duty, his ambition, the poor starving men of the Sitka factory. At a party he dances with Concha and they both know that for each there is none other.
