All of these were under Vice-Commander-in-Chief Wessel Wessels. The district of Winburg: the men under Commandant Hasebroek. The sub-district of Ladybrand: the men under Commandant Koen. The sub-district of Ficksburg: the men under Commandant Steyn. The sub-district of Bethlehem: the men under Commandant Michal Prinsloo. All of these men were under Vice-Commander-in-Chief C.C. Froneman.

In which is shown how vain it is for womankind to murmur against the course and order of this world. Pretty Michal was trembling in all her limbs when the housekeeper undressed and put her to bed. Barbara Pirka went out of her way to be agreeable and obliging.

I ordered them, therefore, to go back after the waggons, and in the evening we camped to the north of Bethlehem. From here, on the following day, I sent the prisoners of war through Naauwpoort into Basutoland. On the same day I gave orders to General Michal Prinsloo to take the commando and to strike a course between Reitz and Heilbron.

Now pretty Michal mastered all these sciences not only with edifying assiduity, but even with real enthusiasm; she found pleasure, employment, and profit therein. Her books, her science, and her flowers not only rejoiced her heart, they filled her pockets likewise.

Perhaps he had renounced her himself already. Perhaps he had gone back to his native place. Should she therefore sacrifice her favorite doves for his sake? At noon the same day Michal brought both the doves to her father, not roasted or stewed on a dish, but alive in their cage, whereupon the professor kissed his dutiful little daughter on both cheeks.

Then he turned and walked slowly off, to the great joy of the crows and ravens, who so long as he stood there did not venture to resume their banquet beneath the gallows. Meanwhile Michal was trying to overtake her husband, who was well on in front surrounded by the merry students. The road became rougher and rougher as it wound down into the valley.

His beloved rests there in the churchyard ditch, and he will never be able to keep away from the spot where she whom he loves so much reposes. So in the ditch where pretty Michal had been cast he kept nine musketeers in ambush, night and day, that they might seize Valentine when he came thither, and shoot him down if he sought to fly.

The hideous din penetrated the thick vaults and double corridors and reached the very room where Michal lay. "They will soon be quiet," said the housekeeper grimly. Michal, in order to change the subject to something more agreeable, asked Pirka whether there was any garden to the house. "You can't keep one," answered Pirka. "Here neither tree nor flower will flourish.

Valentine thanked her for her offer, but begged her to bring up her daughter for some other more fortunate mortal. Who could tell where his bones might be bleaching in five or six years' time? It was only pretty Michal that he had always in his thoughts. He could scarcely wait for Simplex to appear, so impatient was he to set out with him to discover Michal.

Before he parts from Festus at the Alsatian inn, a softer mood overtakes him. Blinded by his own passion, Paracelsus has had no sense to divine the sorrow of his friend, and Festus has had no heart to obtrude such a sorrow as this. Only at the last moment, and in all gentleness, it must be told Michal is dead. In Browning's earliest poem Pauline is no more than a name and a shadow.
