Excerpt from More

In the memoirs Of Count privately printed last year, you will find, if you can gain access to them, many secrets told in a sprightly, yet most authoritative, manner; little that is incredible, little that is not amaz ing, nothing refutable. The Count has cast upon la baate politique, that stage without footlights, many lurid limes, illuminating for us the faces of all the players and even enabling us to understand something of the plot. For years the trusted Minister of the late Emperor off, the Count has much court-lore to communicate, and is terribly frank about the master whom he served so faith fully until, in 1881, he was ousted from favour by the machinations of a jealous and not too scrupulous cabal. I, who had always been taught to regard this monarch as a wise, gifted, and courageous gentleman, if not actually as a hero, am pleasantly shocked to find him designated.
