Frederick wrote to his minister Podewils in Berlin, under date of Neisse, March 29, 1745, as follows: 鈥淲e find ourselves in a great crisis. If we don鈥檛 by mediation of England get peace, our enemies from different sides will come plunging in against me. Peace I can not force them to. But if we must have war, we will either beat them, or none of us will ever see Berlin again.鈥? 买双色球的技巧 There was a young lady in Potsdam by the name of Doris Ritter. She was the daughter of highly respectable parents, and was of unblemished character. As Fritz was extremely fond of music, and she played sweetly on the harpsichord, he loaned her pieces of music, and occasionally, under the eye of her parents, accompanied her with the flute. The life of a colonel in garrison at Potsdam was so dull, that this innocent amusement was often quite a help in beguiling the weary hours. a a. Austrian Army, b b. Prussian Army. c.

In a letter addressed to Lord Hervey, under date of September 30th, 1739, the count writes: 鈥淚 shall send you a curious pamphlet, the only work I almost ever knew that changed the opinions of many. It is called 鈥楥onsiderations on the present German War.鈥?The confirmation of the King of Prussia鈥檚 victory near Torgau does not prevent the disciples of the pamphlet from thinking that the best thing which could happen for us would be to have that monarch鈥檚 head shot off.鈥?62 It turned out that the rumor of the march upon Berlin was greatly exaggerated. General Haddick, with an Austrian force of but four thousand men, by a sudden rush through the woods, seized the suburbs of Berlin. The terrified garrison, supposing that an overwhelming force of the allied army was upon them, retreated, with the royal family and effects, to Spandau. General Haddick, having extorted a ransom of about one hundred and forty thousand dollars from the city, and 鈥渢wo dozen pair of gloves for the empress queen,鈥?and learning that a division of Frederick鈥檚 army was fast approaching, fled precipitately.
