" And the Emperor ?" asked the Master curtly, as soon as his visitor was seated.
Von Holberg was still the Emperor's equerry.
" His Majesty is very well, your Highness," was the formal reply. He did not care for this job of sneaking into filthy houses like this in order to do some beastly underhand work.
" I had not expected to see you, Von Holberg-but the Emperor said he thought it would be better to send you," said the man who had once been a grand duke-the heir apparent to a throne.
" You have seen the Emperor?" gasped Von Holberg.
" No ! but I have spoken to him," was the strange reply. " The last time you and I met, was that night in Silesia just before Christmas, 1912," went on this astounding man.
The equerry nodded ; he remembered that strange business eighteen months ago.
