he was true to Stafford (who had aided his secret flight
from Eome in 1744) and to Sheridan, supporting them
at Avignon.

' Old Mr. Misfortunate ' (King James) died at
Eome in 1766 ; he never saw his ' dearest Carluccio '
after the Prince stole out of the city, full of hope, in
1744—

' A fairy Prince with happy eyes
And lighter-footed than the fox.'

James expired ' without the least convulsion or
agony,' says Lumisden, ' but with his usual mild
serenity in his countenance. . . . He seemed rather
to be asleep than dead.' A proscribed exile from his
cradle, James was true to faith and honour. What
other defeated and fugitive adventurer ever sent
money to the hostile general for the peasants who
had suffered from the necessities of war ?

On January 23, 1766, Lumisden met Charles on
his way to Eome. ' His legs and feet were consider-
ably swelled by the fatigue of the journey. In other
respects he enjoys perfect health, and charms every
one who approaches him.' The Prince was ' mira-
culously ' preserved when his coach was overturned
on a precipice near Bologna. Some jewels and
family relics had not been returned by Cluny, and
there were difficulties about sending a messenger for



A RUMOURED MARRIAGE 319

them : these occupy much of Lumisden's correspond-
ence.

Charles met only with ' mortifications ' at Eome.
The Pope dared not treat him on a Eoyal footing.
In April 1766, our old friend, Lochgarry, took ser-
vice with Portugal. Charles sent congratulations,
' and doubts not your son will be ready to draw the
sword in his just Cause.' The sword remained un-
drawn. Charles had now but an income of 47,000
limes ; he amused himself as he might with shooting,
and playing the French horn ! He never forgave Miss
Walkinshaw, whom his brother, the Cardinal, main-
tained, poorly enough. Lumisden writes to the lady
(July 14, 1766) : 'No one knows the King's temper
better than you do. He has never, so far as I can
discover, mentioned your name. Nor do I believe
that he either knows where you are, nor how you are
maintained. His passion must still greatly cool
before any application can be made to him in your
behalf.'

A report was circulated that Charles was secretly
married to Miss Walkinshaw. On February 16, 1767,
Lumisden wrote to Waters on ' the dismal consequences
of such a rumour,' and, by the Duke of York's desire,
bade Waters obtain a denial from the lady. On
March 11 the Duke received Miss Walkinshaw's
formal affidavit that no marriage existed. 'It has
entirely relieved him from the uneasiness the villainous
report naturally gave him.' On January 5, 1768,
Lumisden had to tell Miss Walkinshaw that ' His



320 PICKLE THE SPY

Eoyal Highness insists you shall always remain in a
monastery.' Lumisden was always courteous to Miss
Walkinshaw. Of her daughter he writes : ' May she
ever possess in the highest degree, those elegant
charms of body and mind, which you so justly
and assiduously cultivate. . . . Did the King know
that I had wrote to you, he would never pardon me.'

On December 20, 1768, Charles had broken with
Lumisden and the rest of his suite. ' Our behaviour
towards him was that of faithful subjects and servants,
jealous at all times to preserve his honour and repu-
tation.' They had, in brief, declined to accompany
Charles in his carriage when his condition demanded
seclusion. Lumisden writes (December 8, 1767), ' His
Eoyal Highness ' (the Duke of York) ' thanked us for
our behaviour in the strongest terms.'

We need follow no further the story of a con-
summated degradation. Charles threw off, one by
one, on grounds of baseless suspicion, Lord George
Murray, Kelly (to please Lord Marischal), Goring, and
now drove from him his most attached servants. He
never suspected Glengarry. But neither time, nor
despair, nor Charles's own fallen self could kill the
loyalty of Scotland. Bishop Forbes, far away, heard
of his crowning folly, and — blamed Lumisden and his
companion, Hay of Restalrig ! When Charles, on
Good Friday, 1772, married Louise of Stolberg, the
remnant of the faithful in Scotland drank to ' the
fairest Fair,' and to an heir of the Crown.

THE IIEIU 321

Into the story of an heir, born at Siena, and
entrusted to Captain Allen, B.N., to be brought up
in England, we need not enter. In Lord Braye's
manuscripts (published by the Historical MSS. Com-
mission) is Charles's solemn statement that, except
Miss Walkinshaw's daughter, he had no child. The
time has not come to tell the whole strange tale of
' John Stolberg Sobieski Stuart and Charles Edward
Stuart,' if, indeed, that tale can ever be told. 1 Nor
does space permit an investigation of Charles's married
life, of his wife's elopement with Alfieri, and of the
last comparatively peaceful years in the society of a
daughter who soon followed him to the tomb. The
stories about that daughter's marriage to a Swedish
Baron Rohenstart, and about their son, merit no at-
tention. In the French Foreign Office archives is a
wild plan for marrying the lady, Charlotte Stuart, to
a Stuart — any Stuart, and raising their unborn son's
standard in the American colonies ! That an offer
was made from America to Charles himself, in 1778,
was stated bv Scott to Washing-ton Irving, on the
authority of a document in the Stuart Papers at
Windsor. That paper could not be found for Lord
Stanhope, nor have I succeeded in finding it. The
latest Scottish honour done to the King was Burns's
' Birthday Ode ' of 1787, and his song for ' The Bonny
Lass o' Albany.'



1 The article on the Tales of the Century in the Quarterly
Beview (vol. lxxxi. p. 57) was not ' by Lockhart,' as Mr. Ewald says,
and is not, in fact, accurate.



322 PICKLE THE SPY

' This lovely maid's of royal blood,

That ruled Albion's kingdoms three,
But oh, alas for her bonnie face !

They hae wrang'd the lass of Albanie ! '

Tout finit par des chansons !

Of the Stuart cause we may say, as Callimaclius
says of his dead friend Heraclitus :

' Still are thy pleasant voices, thy nightingales awake,
For death takes everything away, but these he cannot take.'

A hundred musical notes keep green the memory
of the last Prince of Romance, the beloved, the beau-
tiful, the brave Prince Charlie — everso missus succur-
rere saeclo. The overturned age was not to be rescued
by charms and virtues which the age itself was to
ruin and destrov. Loval memories are faithful, not
to what the Prince became under stress of exile, and
treachery, and hope deferred, and death in life, de
vivre et de pas vivre — but to what he once was, Tear-
lach Rir/h nan Gael.

Of one character in this woful tale a word may
be said. The Princesse de Talmond was visited by
Horace Walpole in 1765. He found her in ' charitable
apartments in the Luxembourg,' and he tripped over
cats and stools (and other things) in the twilight of a
bedroom hung with pictures of Saints and Sobieskis.
At last, and very late, the hour of her conversion had
been granted, by St. Francois Xavier, to the prayers
of her husband. We think of the Baroness Bernstein
in her latest days as we read of the end of the
Princesse. She had governed Charles ' with fury and



THE END 323

follv.' Of all the women who had served him — Flora
Macdonald, Madame de Vasse, Mademoiselle Luci,
Miss WalMnshaw — did he remember none when he
wrote that he understood men, but despaired of
understanding women, 'they being so much more
wicked and impenetrable ' ? l

' Nothing in the Stuart Tapers confirms the story that Charles
was at the Coronation of George III., in 17G1. In the present
century Cardinal York told a member of the Stair family that the
Prince visited England in 1768. It may have been then that he saw
Murray of Broughton, and was seen by Murray's child, afterwards the
actor known to Sir Walter Scott.

APPENDIX A.

This Kelly, as far as I can discover, is the Rev. George
Kelly, an Irish nonjuror, born in 1088. In 1 718-1 I'll
he was the agent between Bishop Atterbury and King
James. Imprisoned for his share in Atterbury 's plot
(1722), Kelly escaped from the Tower, in 173(5, and
joined Ormonde at Avignon. He was one of the Seven
Men who came over to Moidartwith Charles in 1745. In
1750 the Earl Marischal made Charles dismiss Kelly, but
the Prince still paid his pension. He is blamed for
opposing schemes of assassination ! In 1759 he was again
Charles's secretary, and Macallester speaks of his obtain-
ing the pardon and reinstatement of the Prince's dis-
missed butler, Gilshenagh. Kelly was a man of letters,
is highly praised by Atterbury, and was a charming com-
panion, much liked both by men and women. I do not
know why he is called a ' Cordelier,' having observed no
record of his conversion.
