Cassilda: "Not upon us, O King, not upon us!"

The "bitter cry of Cassilda" is quoted in the story The Mask and is probably one of the last lines of the first act mentioned in The Repairer of Reputations – the character Hildred Castaigne "...remembered Camilla's agonised scream and the awful words echoing through the dim streets of Carcosa. They were the last lines of the first act".

The cause of Camilla's scream is not clear, but like the cause of the outburst, though, is probably to do with the horrifying revelation that The Stranger in the Pallid Mask, who has recently arrived at the Masquerade taking place in Scene 2 of Act 1, in fact wears "no mask".

It is referenced in the poem An Eternal Cry.
