    1. Thanks! Did you notice the KEY? The same key mentioned in Pilgrims Progress:

      " Now a little before it was day, good Christian, as one half amazed, brake
      out in passionate speech: What a fool, quoth he, am I, thus to lie in a
      stinking Dungeon, when I may as well walk at liberty. I have a Key in my bosom
      called Promise, that will, I am persuaded, open any Lock in Doubting Castle.
      Then said Hopeful, That's good news; good Brother pluck it out of thy bosom
      and try.

      Then Christian pulled it out of his bosom, and began to try at the
      Dungeon door, whose bolt (as he turned the Key) gave back, and the door flew
      open with ease, and Christian and Hopeful both came out. Then he went to the
      outward door that leads into the Castle-yard, and with his Key opened that
      door also. After he went to the iron Gate, for that must be opened too, but
      that Lock went damnable hard, yet the Key did open it. Then they thrust open
      the Gate to make their escape with speed; but that Gate as it opened made such
      a creaking, that it waked Giant Despair, who hastily rising to pursue his
      Prisoners, felt his limbs to fail, for his Fits took him again, so that he
      could by no means go after them. Then they went on, and came to the King's
      High-way again, and so were safe, because they were out of his jurisdiction."
