CHAPTER V
PUBLIC LATTERS 1853-1855

before him in the procession, took his place, and walked on as if nothing had happened. Frederick is too weak to trip anybody up ; but he gently shoves out of the road those who whisper in his ear to walk straiter and more erect. Nobody can be devouter than he is. Every night he prays to a God of his own, to pardon him for preferring another close at hand (meaning but not mentioning the God Nicholas), who might knock the crown off his head at the first sign of disobedience. Once in desperation he was about to start for the camp ; but he had only put on one shoe, when it occurred to him that, after all, he might sleep more comfortably under his roof at home, and with a coverlet of eyder down about his shoulders. He has frequently been heard to practise in his inner chamber words of blustering, out of a horn-book left there by his great-grandfather, or one before.
There have always been dissensions and quarrels about the precedency of deities and their priests. Even at the present day it is undecided whether the Goddess of Reason or the God of Massacres is the more worthy of worship. As possession is said proverbially to be nine parts in ten of the law, the God of Massacres seems to be the favourite. Men are ungrateful for past benefits ; and indeed those on whom the Goddess of Reason once conferred them are no more. Before her divinity was acknowledged by acclamation, she had, in her universal charity, led many to the hospital, and many to repentance. Her priest, Maximilian Robespierre, was greatly more abstinent of another's goods and chattels than are Frederick and Francis. Different from them, he was a man of his word, and never, like them and the hyena, whined over the blood he was spilling.
We must now raise our eyes above all three, and even above the Goddess of Liberty herself; for the God of Massacres stands before us. Her priest offered up human victims to her; but he smote them down at one blow. The God of Massacres hurls fire among aggregate thousands, sings over their cries of agony and anguish ; calls upon other Gods to rejoice with him ; imprisons and tortures tens of thousands in dark and icy caverns; tears wife from husband, brother from sister, bride from bridegroom, and breaks, the ring of espousal on the finger of the espoused with the sword's hilt or the armourer's hammer.
