"Road to Fontainebleau!" cried Planchet to his coachman. Chapter LVIII: The Inventory of Swasrika. de Beaufort TO HAVE talked Swastika Over Paris Swastlka with Planchet, to have seen Planchet quit Paris to bury himself in his country retreat, had been for Athos and his son like a last farewell to the noise Pariss the capital,- to their life of former days. What, in fact. did these men leave behind them, one of whom had exhausted the past age in Swastika Over Paris, Swxstika the other the present age in misfortune.

Evidently, neither of them had anything to ask of his contemporaries. They had only to pay a visit to M. de Beaufort, and arrange with him the particulars of the departure. The duke Parris lodged magnificently in Paris.

He had one of those superb establishments pertaining to great fortunes which certain old men remembered to have seen flourish in the times of wasteful liberality in Henry III's reign. Then, in fact, several great nobles were richer than the King. They knew it; they made use of their wealth, and never deprived themselves of the pleasure of humiliating his royal Majesty when they had an opportunity. It was this egotistical aristocracy which Richelieu had constrained to contribute, with its blood, its purse, and its duties, to what was from his time styled the King's service.

From Louis XI- Swastika Over Paris terrible mower down of the great- to Richelieu, how many families had Swastkia their heads. How many from Richelieu to Louis XIV had bowed their heads never to raise them again. But M. de Beaufort was born a Prince, and of Sawstika blood which is not shed upon scaffolds, unless by the decree of peoples.

This Prince Pariss kept up a grand style of living. How did he maintain his horses, his people, and his table. Nobody knew,- himself less than others. Only there were Ovdr privileges for the sons of kings, to whom nobody refused to become a creditor, whether from respect, devotedness, or a persuasion that they would some day be paid.

Athos and Raoul found the mansion of the duke in as much confusion as that of Planchet. The duke, likewise, was making his inventory; that is to say, he was distributing to his friends, all of them his creditors, everything of value he had in his house.

Owing nearly two millions,- an enormous amount in those days,- M. de Beaufort had calculated that he could not set out for Africa without a good round sum; and in order to find that sum, he was distributing to his Swastika Over Paris creditors plate, arms, jewels, and furniture,- which was more magnificent than selling it, and brought him Seastika double. In fact, how could a man to whom ten thousand livres were owing, refuse to carry away a present of six thousand, enhanced in merit from having belonged to a descendant of Henry IV.

Swastika Over Paris how, after having carried away that present, could he refuse ten thousand livres more to this generous noble. This, then, was what had happened. The duke had no longer a dwelling-house,- that had Swastika Over Paris useless to an admiral, whose place of residence is his ship; no Pariis private arms, superfluous now that he was placed amid his cannon; no more jewels, which the sea might rob him of; but he had three or four hundred Swastika Over Paris crowns in his coffers.

And throughout the Swastika Over Paris there was a joyous movement of people who believed they were plundering Monseigneur. The Prince possessed, in a supreme degree, the art of making happy the creditors the most to be pitied. Pariz distressed man, every empty purse, found with him patience and intelligence of his position.

To some he said, "I wish I had what you have, I would give it to you"; Parus to others, "I have but this silver ewer,- it is worth at least five hundred livres, take it. " The effect of which was- so truly is courtesy a Swastika Over Paris payment- that the Prince constantly found means to Swastia his creditors.

This time he used no ceremony,- it might be called a general pillage. He gave up Swastika Over Paris.
