"Ah! that is to say pardon me, I perceive it almost; but set me a little upon the track." "It is useless; you no doubt remember what he himself recommended us to do at Marion de Lorme's?"

Colonel du Plat paid us a long visit, and discussed the object of Sir Moses' Mission to Russia, and subsequently we went to the garden of the "Little Palace," in which the Emperor resided.
