One evening, being too unwell to read his usual devotions, he called upon his valet de chambre to read prayers. In the prayer occurred the words, 鈥淢ay God bless thee.鈥?The servant, not deeming it respectful to use thee in reference to the king, took the liberty to change the phrase, and read it, 鈥淢ay God bless you.鈥?The king, exasperated, hurled something at the head of the speaker, exclaiming, 鈥淚t is not so; read it again.鈥?The terrified servant, not conceiving in what he had done wrong, read again, 鈥淢ay God bless you.鈥?The irascible monarch, having nothing else he could grasp, took off his night-cap and threw it into the man鈥檚 face, exclaiming, 鈥淚t is not so; read it over again.鈥?The servant, frightened almost out of his senses, read for the third time, 鈥淢ay God bless you.鈥?鈥淭hee, rogue,鈥?shouted the king. 鈥溾€楳ay God bless thee.鈥?Dost thou not know, rascal, that, in the eyes of God, I am only a miserable rascal like thyself?鈥?

The alarm in Berlin was very great. The citizens were awake to the consciousness that there was danger; that the city itself would be assaulted. Great was the consternation in the capital when minute directions came from Frederick respecting the course to be pursued in the event of such a calamity, and the places of refuge to which the royal family should retreat. 鈥淲e can not afford the least narrative of G?rtz and his courses: imagination, from a few traits, will sufficiently conceive them. He had gone first to Karl Theodor鈥檚 minister: 鈥楧ead to it, I fear; has already signed?鈥?Alas! yes. Upon which to Zweibrück, the heir鈥檚 minister, whom his master had distinctly ordered to sign,554 but who, at his own peril, gallant man, delayed, remonstrated, had not yet done it; and was able to answer: "Very good. Now listen. When he calls up, make out you're in great anxiety. But don't give him too many details over the 'phone. Suggest that it's not safe to do so. You can let him understand though that it has something to do with Bobo or me. Tell him that you think I am having you watched. Tell him that you must see him in order to find out how to act. Don't ask him to come here; that would surely excite his suspicions. Name some public place; a hotel would be the best." You did not suppose that anybody would have the curiosity to know who we were; but it seems there are people who are trying to make it out, though they are not very happy in their conjectures. Some take me for a doctor of the Sorbonne; others ascribe my letters to four or five persons, who, like me, are neither priests nor Churchmen. All these false surmises convince me that I have succeeded pretty well in my object, which was to conceal myself from all but yourself and the worthy monk, who still continues to bear with my visits, while I still contrive, though with considerable difficulty, to bear with his conversations. I am obliged, however, to restrain myself; for, were he to discover how much I am shocked at his communications, he would discontinue them and thus put it out of my power to fulfil the promise I gave you, of making you acquainted with their morality. You ought to think a great deal of the violence which I thus do to my own feelings. It is no easy matter, I can assure you, to stand still and see the whole system of Christian ethics undermined by such a set of monstrous principles, without daring to put in a word of flat contradiction against them. But, after having borne so much for your satisfaction, I am resolved I shall burst out for my own satisfaction in the end, when his stock of information has been exhausted. Meanwhile, I shall repress my feelings as much as I possibly can for I find that the more I hold my tongue, he is the more communicative. The last time I saw him, he told me so many things that I shall have some difficulty in repeating them all. On the point of restitution you will find they have some most convenient principles. For, however the good monk palliates his maxims, those which I am about to lay before you really go to sanction corrupt judges, usurers, bankrupts, thieves, prostitutes and sorcerers 鈥?all of whom are most liberally absolved from the obligation of restoring their ill-gotten gains. It was thus the monk resumed the conversation: "Who's quarreling? Can't you take a joke?" One evening, being too unwell to read his usual devotions, he called upon his valet de chambre to read prayers. In the prayer occurred the words, 鈥淢ay God bless thee.鈥?The servant, not deeming it respectful to use thee in reference to the king, took the liberty to change the phrase, and read it, 鈥淢ay God bless you.鈥?The king, exasperated, hurled something at the head of the speaker, exclaiming, 鈥淚t is not so; read it again.鈥?The terrified servant, not conceiving in what he had done wrong, read again, 鈥淢ay God bless you.鈥?The irascible monarch, having nothing else he could grasp, took off his night-cap and threw it into the man鈥檚 face, exclaiming, 鈥淚t is not so; read it over again.鈥?The servant, frightened almost out of his senses, read for the third time, 鈥淢ay God bless you.鈥?鈥淭hee, rogue,鈥?shouted the king. 鈥溾€楳ay God bless thee.鈥?Dost thou not know, rascal, that, in the eyes of God, I am only a miserable rascal like thyself?鈥? 163 鈥淎fter dinner, being alone with me, he said, 鈥極ur sire is approaching his end. He will not live out this month. I know that I have made you great promises, but I am not in the condition to keep them. I will leave you the half of the sum which my predecessor lent you. I think that you will have every reason to be satisfied with that.鈥?
