鈥淚ndeed I do,鈥?the king responded. 鈥淥therwise I durst not risk a battle. And now, my children, a good night鈥檚 sleep to you. We shall soon attack the enemy; and we shall beat him, or we shall all die.鈥? Thus Bavaria turned against Frederick. It was manifest to all that Maria Theresa, aided by the alliances into which she had entered, and sustained by the gold which the English cabinet so generously lavished upon her, would be able to place the imperial crown upon her husband鈥檚 brow. It was equally evident that the sceptre of power, of which that crown was the emblem, would be entirely in her own hands. 鈥淕rumkow led me to the young man in gray. Coming near, I recognized him, though with difficulty. He had grown much stouter, and his neck was much shorter. His face also was much changed, and was no longer as handsome as it had been. I fell upon his neck. I was so overcome that I could only speak in an unconnected manner. I wept, I laughed like a person out of her senses. In my life I have never felt so lively a joy.

Three reliable officers of89 the king occupied the same carriage with Fritz, with orders to keep a strict watch over him, and never to leave him alone. Thus, throughout the journey, one of his guards sat by his side, and the other two on the seat facing him. The king was not a luxurious traveler. He seemed to covet hardship and fatigue. Post-horses were provided all along the route. The meteoric train rushed along, scarcely stopping for food or sleep, but occasionally delayed by business of inspection, until it reached Anspach, where the king鈥檚 beautiful daughter, then but sixteen years of age, resided with her uncongenial husband. Here the Crown Prince had some hope of escape. He endeavored to persuade his brother-in-law, the young Marquis of Anspach, to lend him a pair of saddle-horses, and to say nothing about it. But the characterless young man, suspecting his brother, and dreading the wrath of his terrible father-in-law, refused, with many protestations of good-will. The king then, having ordered his guard to watch him with the utmost vigilance, assuring them that their heads should answer for it if they allowed him to escape, sent his son to another boat. He was prevailed upon to do so, as no one could tell to what length the king鈥檚 ungovernable passions might lead him. He rose about five o鈥檆lock. After a horseback ride of an hour he devoted the mornings to his books. The remainder of the day was given to society, music, and recreation.

The letter was addressed to an intimate friend, Baron Von Suhm, of Saxony: The authorship of the article could not be concealed. Frederick was indignant. He angrily seized his pen, and wrote a reply, which, though anonymous, was known by all to have been written by the king. In this reply he accused the writer of the article, whom he well knew to be Voltaire, of being a 鈥渕anifest retailer of lies,鈥?鈥渁 concocter of stupid libels,鈥?and as 鈥済uilty of conduct more malicious, more dastardly, more infamous鈥?than he had ever known before.
