For the fourth--the "Soldier's joy"-- she was claimed by an awkward schoolboy, home for the holidays; whether out of duty or obeying the law of Nature by which shy youths are attracted to middle-aged partners, she could not tell, nor did she ask herself, but danced the dance and enjoyed it more than her cavalier was ever likely to guess.

Por las extensas galerias que se prolongaban a lo lejos formando un intrincado laberinto de pilastras esbeltas y ojivas caladas y ligeras como el encaje, por los espaciosos salones vestidos de tapices, donde la seda y el oro habian representado, con mil colores diversos, escenas de amor, de caza y de guerra, y adornados con trofeos de armas y escudos, sobre los cuales vertian un mar de chispeante luz un sinnumero de lamparas y candelabros de bronce, plata y oro, colgadas aquellas de las altisimas bovedas, y enclavados estos en los gruesos sillares de los muros; por todas partes a donde se volvian los ojos, se veian oscilar y agitarse en distintas direcciones una nube de damas hermosas con ricas vestiduras, chapadas en oro, redes de perlas aprisionando sus rizos, joyas de rubies llameando sobre su seno, plumas sujetas en vaporoso cerco a un mango de marfil, colgadas del puno, y rostrillos de 'blancos encajes, que acariciaban sus mejillas, o alegres turbas de galanes con talabartes de terciopelo, justillos de brocado y calzas de seda, borceguies de tafilete, capotillos de mangas perdidas y caperuza, punales con pomo de filigrana y estoques de corte, brunidos, delgados y ligeros.

Impossible is it to conceive, without being in the very circumstances Horatio was, what a strange variety of mingled passions agitated his breast on having to read, and considered these letters:--to find such unhoped condescension from the baron de Palfoy and that Dorilaus was still living, and had the same, if not more tender inclinations for him than ever, the latter of which he had long since ceased to hope, was sufficient to have overwhelmed even the most phlegmatic person with an excess of joy:--but then the dark expressions in both these letters put his brain on the rack.--The baron had seemed to refer to an explanation of what he darkly hinted at in the letter of Dorilaus, but that he found rather more obsolete: he could imagine nothing farther than that Dorilaus having resolved to make him his heir, as he remembered some people said before he left England, on the knowledge of that intelligence the baron de Palfoy had consented to his marriage with mademoiselle Charlotta, and this, her being permitted to write to him confirmed.--This indeed was the supreme aim of his desires; and this it was that made him quit St. Germains, in hope of raising himself to a condition which might enable her to own her affection to him without a blush: but transporting as this idea was, it was mingled with disquiet, to reflect on the terms which both the Baron and Dorilaus seemed to insist on for the accomplishment of his wishes, tho' he impatiently longed to see Dorilaus after so long an absence.--Tho' in the possession of Charlotta all his hopes were centered, yet to leave a prince who had so highly favoured him, and under whose banners he had gained so much consideration, was a piece of ingratitude, which it was worse than death for him to be guilty of.--No!
"With what transports I received yours, adorable Charlotta, I am little able to express!--To find I am not forgotten!--That what I have done is approved by her for whom alone I live, and whose praise alone can make me vain, so swallowed up all other considerations, that it had almost made me quit Alranstadt that moment, and fly to pour beneath your feet my gratitude and joy!--But glory, tyrannic glory, would not suffer me to obey the soft impulse, nor re-enjoy that blessing till conscious I deserved it better!--My friends over-rate my services; and tho' that partial indulgence is the ultimate of my ambition, I would dare not abuse what they are so good to offer."
