Summary (IBList user synopsis):

Henry de Montmorency, together with two attendants, enter a forbidding glen, and hear the cries of a woman held captive by banditti.

This was originally a gothic fragment by Nathan Drake called Montmorenci from his 1798 miscellany Literary Hours; or Sketches, Critical, Narrative, and Poetical. It was lifted by a publisher, completed by an anonymous hand, and published as the gothic story Captive of the Banditti in an 1801 "blue book".
