the fires of a stranger's love, in support thereof alleging instances of
maidens who have been betrayed in a style so polished and cultivated
that I ought to admire rather than forget thy talents.

" What man is there who would cease to love when he finds his
mistress cautious and prudent ? Hadst thou desired to lessen my love,
thou shouldst not have displayed thy learning. This will not extinguish
the fire, but will only fan the embers into flame. Come now, at last
take pity on thy lover, who is melting away like snow before the sun.
If thou dost thus punish me who love thee, how will thou treat one who
injures thee ? Oh, my salvation and my consolation ! take me into thy
favour at last ; write back that I am dear to thee, that is all I desire.
Farewell, my hope ! Thine Charles Louis."

The following is the answer of Maria Susanna, Baroness Degenfeld
to the previous letters of Karl Ludwig, Elector Palatine : —

" To the most Serene Elector Palatine, Charles Louis,
Duke of Bavaria, my beloved.

"No longer can I resist thee, most Serene Elector, nor refuse thee my
love ; thou hast conquered ! Now I am thine ; unhappy woman to
have received thy letters ! Many dangers must threaten me unless thy
good faith and prudence aid me ; see that thou keep thy word. I
surrender to thy love ; if tliou dost desert me, thou art cruel and a
traitor, and most villainous ; it is easy to deceive a poor woman, but the
easier, the baser it is. Nothing is settled as yet ; if thou dost desire to
leave me, say so, before my passion becomes more imflamed ; let us not
begin what we may afterwards regret having begun. Wc shall always
love to the end. I, as is the way of women, see but little. Thou seest,

and it behoves thee to have a care for both. I give myself to thee, and
trust in thy good faith. I will not begin to be thine except I am to
be thine for ever. Farewell, my protector.

" Maria Susanna, Baroness Degenfeld."

P. 213, /. 14. — The Electress Sophia, in her Memoirs (translated by
H. Forester), says : "Worn out at last by his wife's bad temper, which
he had striven vainly for seven years to subdue, the Elector had made
up his mind to have a divorce, and to take the Baroness Luise von
Degenfeldt in her stead. In a declaration on their separation, the
Elector stated that during the whole of their wedded life, especially
latterly, his wife''s conduct to him had been uniformly contradictory,
disobedient, obstinate, sulky and rebellious, and that, notwithstanding
all his patience and long-suffering, she continued in this insufferable
and extraordinary frame of mind." The Electress added that her
sister-in-law was very stupid, thinking of nothing besides her clothes,
but that she was handsome and idolised by her brother. It was said
that she had given any heart she had to Duke Frederick of Wiirtemberg,
and had been forced into the marriage with Karl Ludwig.

P. 213, /. 24. — The Protestant family of Schomberg or Schonberg
(as it is in German) was a branch of an ancient German family, and was
settled in the diocese of Treves. They had long been associated with
the family of the Elector Palatine. When James I. placed his daughter.
Princess Elizabeth, under the care of Lord and Lady Harrington at Combe
Abbey, her favourite companion was Lady Harrington's niece, Anne
Dudley, daughter of Edward Sutton, Lord Dudley, and this friendship
continued till death severed it.

On the occasion of Princess Elizabeth's marriage with the Elector
Palatine, he presented Anne Dudley with a magnificent chain of pearls
and diamonds, and the Princess insisted on her coming to Heidelberg as
one of her ladies, which she did, but soon after married Comte Jean
Meinhardt Schomberg, Grand-Marshal of the Palatinate, and died in
December of the same year at the birth of her son Frederick, who became
the celebrated General, killed at the battle of the Boyne. Had she lived
to see the laurels won by her son, she would have had mixed feelings, in
thinking that they were won fighting against a Stuart, the nephew of her
beloved mistress.

P. 46, /. 10. — In one the French King writes as follows: " Vous

lettres. II suffit qu'elles viennent de vous pour etre revues en tout temps
avec beaucoup de distinction. Soyez en bien persuadee et jugez par ce
que je viens de faire en votre faveur de ce que vous devez attendre de la
continuation de mon estime en d'autres occasions, et c'est de bon coeur
que je prie Dieu de vous avoir ma cousine, en sa sainte et digne garde.

" Louis."

P. 95, footnote. — This lady is interesting as having been for three
years the object of affection of her cousin Lord Edv^ard Fitzgerald.
When he proposed to her in 1786 she refused him, but he continued
to think of her and lived in hopes of a change in her sentiments. In
1788 he vv^rote as follovv^s to the Duchess of Leinster : "As long as

there is the smallest hope of being happy with G , it is not possible

to be happy with any one else. I never can, I think, love anybody as I
do her, for with her I can find no fault ; I may admire and love other
women, but none can come in competition with her. Dearest mother,
after yourself I think she is the most perfect creature on earth."

His hopes received their final blow when, on his unexpected return
from America in 1789, he found on reaching his mother's house in
Harley Street that a wedding dinner was then actually going on, given by
the Duchess of Leinster in honour of the recent marriage of Georgiana
Lennox to Lord Bathurst. Lord Edward's arrival at such an inauspicious
moment caused no little excitement, and his sister. Lady Sophia Fitzgerald,
rushed from the table to stop him from coming in, and thus prevented an
embarrassing encounter.

If Georgiana Lennox had favoured his suit, how different in all prob-
ability would have been the future of Lord Edward, and a noble, gener-
ous, and well-beloved life would probably have been saved, for it was his
disappointment that drove him again from home, and he went to Paris,
where the pernicious seeds sown in his heart whilst he was in America
became so fatally developed.
