SUNDAY MAGAZINE FOR JULY 18. 1909
A GENTLE KNIGHT
OF OLD BRANDENBURG
with England was almost convinced by the
, i : , en that the renewal of marriage negotiations
would be the best war of pacifying King .George.
Frederick William listened with considerable
patience to his wife, though lie took no steps
toward reviving the English arrangement.
Grumkow was able to prevent thai
Wilhelmina's marriage once more became a
live issue, anil was discussed in The Tabagie
one evening, the King having come over from
Spandau for that j>urj*>se. (Irumkow dwelt
eloquently on the wrongs of Prussia suffered at
the hands of England. He spoke with tears of
the insufferable insults that had been put ujmhi
"our gracious, just, our wise and gentle, King
by the Knglish tyrant, who would trample
Prussia un<ier his despotic heel!" Crumkow.
who was eloquent, easily brought the King back
to his time frenzy, and though his Majesty
did not explicitly dec lan- that nothing would be
done ii relation to the Knglish marriage, he
showed very clearly that his distaste for the
project and his hatred for King George still
existed. . .
The specter of the Knglish man fright
ened Grumkow. since that alliance would ef
fectually put an end to the fine schemes for his
own aggrandizement and would disgrace him
with his real master, th.- Kmperor of Austria.
To prevent the English marriage Grumkow
must find another husband for Wilhelmina.
Schwedt and Weissenfefa being out of the way.
there was no man at hand who would serve
Orumkow's i>uq«rsi' in preventing the English
marnage better than August of Saxony; so, in
desperation and out of sheer, poison hearted
hatred f..r the beautiful Princess, this incarna
lion of Satan proposed King August, the moral
leper of Christendom, for Mina's husband.
Adolph was present at The Tabagie when
Grumkow's suggestion was put forward, ami
again he was in trouble. Having grown care
less of consequences, he ran to the head of the
table where Grumkow was standing beside the
King's chair, and unceremoniously interrupted
Grumkow by shaking his fist under the Baron's
nose, after which aggressive movement he
turned to the King, exclaiming:
•' Why do you not kill your daughter? She
had a thousand times better be dead than mar

was not in all Brandenburg and Prussia another
man who would have dared speak those words,
unless it was the handsome Captain.
"Take this man away and put him to bed!"
cried the Kinj».

the room, while he shouted anathemas against

lady in waiting met him at the door, he sent
word to her Majesty thai he wished t<> sj«-uk to
her on a subject of great importance, and was
at once admitted. Standing fore the Queen,
hat in hand and almost breathless, he began to
explain his mission.

"Which daughter'" exclaimed Don't Care,
who was seated at the harpsichord.
"Princess Wilhelmina. '" responded Adolph.
"Oh." said Don't Care, turning again to the
harpsichord and running her fingers carelessly
over the keys.
" Stop that noise!" cried the Queen. " Where
is your sister' "
" I'm sure I don't know." answered Don't
Care, without turning her head from the harp
sichord. "She is in bed. I suppose. Shall I
carry the welcome news to her?'
" \o," said the • 'ueen sharply. " Keep still!

the Margrave, "go on. go on!"
"Ma lam, : have told you all ... tell."
answered Adolph. mopping his face with the
great red handkerchief. "Grumkow proposes
King August. Your husban-1 seems to take
kindly to the"*proposition ami curses England

said — much."
"!t is indeed much," answered the Queen.
"What ■ an we ilo?"
"I: your Majesty will allow me to speak, I.
who am of so little moment in your eyes may
be able to make .1 suggestion that Would be
worth hearing "
"In God's name, speak'" answered the
Queen, " What you have to say may be worth
listening to. 1 haven't thing else to do just
now. Co on!"
"If your Majesty insists on trying to revive
the English marriage —

"Shall : proceed?" asked the Margrave, with
a Bash of anger.
"Yes, yes, go on!" returned the Queen im
•'I; your Majesty insists at this time on put
ting forward the English marriage, you will
surely precipitate the union with Saxony. You
have' already learned the brutal strength of
Grumkow's hand. What now would be the
fate of the Princess if I had failed to come to
her rescue? King August will not refuse her
hand as 1 did, and I may not be able to kill his
Majesty of Poland. Listen to the advice of one

who has proved himself your friend Drop the
English project at once if you would not bring
ruin on yourself and on the Princess. and ttyto
find for your .laughter a husband more suitable
than King August." . ,
Don't Care rose from the harpsichord and
ran laughing to the <J U een. " L*t me present
to mv sister mv Prince, the hereditary I rmc

seemed to l.*,k upon the situation as a rare jest.

cried joyfully. -That is the very thinjj y/ .ur

OWING to C»rumkow"s watchfulness, the
Queen was unable to see the King for two
or tlifee days after the interview with Adolph:
but when she saw him she told him that she had
heard of C.rumkow's kind suggestion touching
the Saxony alliance. She also told him her
mind on the subject. The King listened for a
time and broke forth in storm.
