TREACHERY

"Nonsense! " growled the Ambassador-or words to that effect for they were talking in French. They usually conversed together in this language because Prince Gustave could speak very little Bulkranian ; and Carl could not speak his uncle's tongue at all. But this made no difference to the man who stood behind a pillar listening to every word that was said. He was learning of the lost letters for the first time ; and anyone watching him would have seen his otherwise aristocratic face suddenly convulsed with a terrible rage when he heard of their loss. He would have liked those letters himself. Indeed, he had quite intended that Carl should be made to give them to him !
" And now, Carl," went on Prince Gustave, quite ignorant of the unseen enemy. "There is one more matter we must discuss. You know that your mother is coming over here soon." (This was news indeed to the man behind the pillar.) "Well! She has a very particular reason for doing so. She will tell you herself what that reason is. But I want to say this much-Do not lose your heart to any of these English girls. It would be very inconvenient, and cause a great deal of trouble. You could never marry one of them. Remember the mistake your father made. It would only be another similar affair. Be careful then-especially over Lady Veronica."
" Whatever do you mean?" bristled the Prince. He had not even fathomed the reason for his pleasure in Veronica's company yet. It was all so sudden.
" Don't get annoyed, my boy," advised his uncle. "There is a proverb in this matter-of-fact country, England, which says, `A word to the wise is sufficient.' I will say no more; but please prepare yourself for your mother's arrival."

TREACHERY

They parted after that, and so neither of them heard the audible chuckle of the listener. He had learned two or three very important items during the last ten minutes. But, in any case, his chuckle was lost in the crash of the orchestra calling them all to dance.
