- 1 How the Brigadier Came to the Castle of Gloom
- 2 You must know, then, that in the February of 1807?
- 3 It was a bleak season to ride through the poorest?
- 4 For my own part I was endeavouring?
- 5 'I can explain it all in a few words,' said he.
- 6 The track which led to the Castle wound through?
- 7 'Well, my brave boys,' he hiccoughed.
- 8 For a moment we could not realize it.
- 9 There had been a low sound at our little window?
- 10 There was no time for us to pause.
- 11 It was only afterwards that I had time to think?
- 12 How the Brigadier Slew the Brothers of Ajaccio
- 13 And all the time our little man, with his pale face?
- 14 'This is Monsieur Etienne Gerard?'
- 15 'That will do. You can go,' said the Emperor?
- 16 'I have need of your services, Monsieur Gerard,' said he.
Disk 2 von 6
- 1 My faith, I was right glad to get out of the room.
- 2 The Emperor had told me not to think?
- 3 We walked for rather more than a mile?
- 4 Ah, how I blessed the wisdom which had caused?
- 5 I believe that, if he had stood in silence?
- 6 'Ah, Monsieur Gerard,' said he?
- 7 How the Brigadier Held the King
- 8 'Halloa, comrade!' said I, as he came up to me.
- 9 'Well, we had been rolling and creaking on our way?'
- 10 I cannot tell you how frantic their rage was?
- 11 As the injured man still supported upon the barrel?
- 12 'You sleek hound!' I cried.
- 13 It was not a very cheering sight for me?
- 14 'If you will have the kindness to loosen these cords,' I answered?
- 15 'Fight for your skin, froggy,' said he.
- 16 'In another mile we shall be up with the outposts,' said he.
Disk 3 von 6
- 1 The first game I won right off, though I must confess?
- 2 Three men were standing quite close to us?
- 3 How the King Held the Brigadier
- 4 We officers, however, lived in a separate wing?
- 5 There was a single window in our cell?
- 6 Then another very important matter was the choice?
- 7 But a minute passed and yet another, with no sound?
- 8 But very soon I found that there was no cottage there.
- 9 And now I set myself to the task of putting as broad?
- 10 My pockets were filled with bread which I had saved?
- 11 'Blow my dickey,' said he, 'give it a name, guv'nor!'
- 12 'My friends,' said I, sitting up on my bed?
- 13 It was good advice, I thought, and I ran to the door?
- 14 How the Brigadier Took the Field Against the Marshal Millefleurs
- 15 'For which it is high time he was hanged,' said I?
- 16 'There are English across the valley, Colonel,' he cried?
- 17 There are two things in this world that I am very slow to forget?
Disk 4 von 6
- 1 And so, instead of fighting, we wheeled our half squadrons?
- 2 We bore two days' rations in our haversacks?
- 3 'There is only one thing that I would ask,' said he.
- 4 It may have been about two o'clock in the morning?
- 5 So we were left together, this murderous renegade and I?
- 6 'Luck always comes to the aid of a fool,' he answered?
- 7 'We have thirty-seven English dragoons in our hands,' said he.
- 8 How the Brigadier Played for a Kingdom
- 9 It is interesting, but it is also fatiguing?
- 10 While these thoughts were passing through my head?
- 11 I had reined up the mare and was looking at him?
- 12 It was a mad ride, that ? a ride with a loose rein?
- 13 How she blossomed out in my presence, this woman?
- 14 But one thing was certain ? all this affair of the fracas?
- 15 'You brazen it admirably,' said I.
Disk 5 von 6
- 1 You would have been proud of me, my friends?
- 2 'By Heaven, Korner, this is rank mutiny,' cried the captain.
- 3 'But you took them, none the less.'
- 4 How the Brigadier Won His Medal
- 5 I am a rough soldier, but I have words and ideas.
- 6 When I heard that Blucher had been there for two days?
- 7 All this flashed on me as if by instinct, you understand.
- 8 Who should be at the head of the troop but old Bouvet?
- 9 Old Bouvet was waiting in the passage when I entered?
- 10 I have said that at the further end of the cellar?
- 11 'Should I then take the uniform off?'
- 12 One or two officers spoke to me with an air of authority?
- 13 Well, the road was clear, and about three o'clock?
- 14 'What the deuce are you doing here?' he shouted.
Disk 6 von 6
- 1 How the Brigadier Was Tempted by the Devil
- 2 He had a suite of rooms at the end of the gallery?
- 3 I was so moved by my own words and by the fine position?
- 4 'And yet it was in the cause of France,' returned the Emperor.
- 5 'In the first place, I will tell you what these papers are.'
- 6 'We are the three officers of the Emperor, madame,' said I?
- 7 'There they are!' cried Despienne?
- 8 But it was the papers - always the papers - of which I thought.
- 9 'Tut,' said the Emperor. 'We have got the poor pawn?'
- 10 'May we all die as gallantly,' said the Emperor, as he rose?
- 11 In this way the Emperor and I - even after years it sends a flush.
