THE TWILIGHT OF THE GODS

from him. One evening when I was alone with him in his study in the Rue Bonaparte, he suddenly fell into a terrifying state of speechlessness and rigidity. I dared not say anything for fear of provoking an attack and I stayed close by, affectionately watching over him, for a period that seemed very long. Suddenly he looked at me and said:
`You are Poeymirau, aren't you?'
General de Poeymirau had been one of his adjutants in Morocco twenty years earlier. I did not contradict him, and little by little he emerged from his dream. One day I heard the present Queen of England very charmingly draw him out of a similar reverie. It was at the Colonial Exposition at Vincennes over which he had presided with his customary skill and which he had made one of the last French successes. The Duke and Duchess of York had come to see it. He had taken them walking from the Pagoda of Ankor to the Algerian village and from Tahiti to Djibuti, and then had given them tea on the shore of the lake. Little tables for three had been set up. The Marshal, tired by this long walk, was a little sombre. He invited the Duchess to sit down at his table and then asked:
`To whom does your Royal Highness wish to give the honour of occupying the third place?'

And so I was summoned, feeling much embarrassment at being chosen. The young princess addressed several remarks to me, and then turning to the Marshal:
`Monsieur le Marechal,' she said, `you are so powerful, you created the beautiful country of Morocco and you have made this fine exposition, would you do something for me?'
`For you, Madame?' Lyautey said in surprise. `But what can I do for your Royal Highness?'
`Why this,' she said. `The sun is in my eyes, Monsieur le Marechal. Will you make it disappear?'
The Marshal was looking at her in stupefaction when suddenly the sun went behind a cloud.
'Thank you, Monsieur le Marechal,' said the Duchess with perfect equanimity. `I knew that you could do anything, even control the sun.' He laughed and relaxed. In lowered voice the Duchess said to me:
