Being so much older than he was, I anticipated no trouble in getting my own way, but he would not hear of it. The utmost he would assent to was that he should be my guest till he could find a room for himself, which he would set about doing at once. 鈥淢ust there be war?鈥?he said. 鈥淚 am your majesty鈥檚 friend. Can we not, in mutual concession, find agreement?鈥? 吉林福彩快3开奖直播 Martin felt himself grow red, remembering the tightly pocketed bagman who took the stage while he searched for eleemosynary sous. 鈥淚n that case there鈥檚 nothing more to be said,鈥?remarked Bigourdin dismally. 鈥淢y children,鈥?said Frederick that night at parole, 鈥渁fter such a day鈥檚 work you deserve rest. This day will send the renown of your name and that of the nation down to the latest posterity.鈥? On the night of the 14th Frederick had stationed his lines with the greatest care to guard against surprise. At midnight, wrapped in his cloak, and seated on a drum by a watch-fire, he had just fallen asleep. An Irish officer, a deserter from the Austrians, came blustering and fuming into the camp with the announcement that General Lacy鈥檚 army was on the march to attack Frederick by surprise. Frederick sprang to his horse. His perfectly drilled troops were instantly in motion. By a rapid movement his troops were speedily placed in battle array upon the heights of the Wolfsberg. They would thus intercept the enemy鈥檚 line of march, would take him by surprise, and were in the most admirable position to encounter superior numbers. To deceive the foe, all the Prussian camp-fires were left burning. General Loudon had resorted to the same stratagem to deceive Frederick. Frederick was now in such deep pecuniary embarrassment that he was compelled to humble himself so far as to apply to the King of France for money. 鈥淚f your majesty,鈥?he wrote, 鈥渃an not furnish me with any re-enforcements, you must, at least, send me funds to raise additional troops. The smallest possible sum which will enable me to maintain my position here is three million dollars.鈥? 鈥淵ou have a frolicsome idea of a holiday jaunt,鈥?said Corinna.
