On reaching his sleeping-room, the Emperor interrupted him. He wished to be dressed for dinner. Master Adrian would not believe his own ears. He was to bring one of the new reception robes, and yet to-day not even the Queen of Hungary was to share his Majesty's repast. One of the costliest new costumes!
