Poor Linsenbarth had a feather bed, a small chest of clothes, and a bag of books. He went to a humble inn, called the 鈥淲hite Swan,鈥?utterly penniless. The landlord, seeing that he could levy upon his luggage in case of need, gave him food and a small room in the garret to sleep in. Here he remained in a state verging upon despair for eight weeks. Some of the simple neighbors advised him to go directly to the king, as every poor man could do at certain hours in the day. He wrote a brief statement of the facts, and started on foot for Potsdam. We give the result in the words of Linsenbarth: D鈥橝rgens spent the winter with the king at Leipsic. He gives the following incident: 鈥淥ne day I entered the king鈥檚 apartment, and found him sitting on the floor with a platter of fried meat, from which he was feeding his dogs. He had a little rod, with which he kept order among them, and shoved the best bits to his favorites.鈥? Frederick, being constrained by the approach of General Daun to raise the siege of Dresden, retired to his intrenched camp at Schlettau. Leaving fifteen thousand men to guard the camp, he, on the 1st of August, before the dawn, crossed the Elbe, and was again on the rapid march toward Silesia. His army consisted of thirty thousand men, and was accompanied by two thousand heavy baggage-wagons. In five days the king marched over one hundred miles, crossing five rivers. Armies of the allies, amounting504 to one hundred and seventy-five thousand Austrians and Russians, were around him鈥攕ome in front, some in his rear, some on his flanks.150 CHAPTER XXXI.

Dark as these days were, they led the prince to a crown, and to achievements of whose recital the world will never grow weary. Fritz, goaded to madness, again adopted the desperate resolve to attempt an escape. A young Englishman, Captain Guy Dickens, secretary of the British embassador, Dubourgay, had become quite the intimate friend of the Crown Prince. They conferred together upon plans of escape. But the precautions adopted by the father were such that no plan which they could devise seemed feasible at that time. Fritz confided his thoughts to his friend, Lieutenant Keith, at Berlin. 鈥淚t is impossible,鈥?writes Lord Dover, 鈥渘ot to perceive that the real reason of his conduct was his enmity to his son, and that the crime of the poor girl was the having assisted in making the son鈥檚 existence more supportable. The intention of Frederick William apparently being that the infliction of so infamous a punishment in so public a manner should prevent the possibility of Frederick鈥檚 ever seeing her again.鈥?4 鈥淭hen,鈥?writes Wilhelmina, 鈥渁s to his bride, I begged him to tell me candidly if the portrait the queen and my sister had been making of her were the true one.鈥?
