The whole allied army was now put wildly to flight, in one of the most humiliating and disastrous retreats which has ever occurred. There is generally some slight diversity of statement in reference to the numbers engaged on such occasions. Frederick gives sixty-three thousand as the allied force. The allies lost, in killed, wounded, and missing, about ten thousand men. The loss of the Prussians was but five hundred. The French, in a tumultuous mass, fled to the west. Crossing the Unstrut River at Freiburg, they burned the bridge behind them. The Prussians rebuilt the bridge, and vigorously pursued. The evening after the battle the king wrote as follows to Wilhelmina. His letter was dated 鈥淣ear Weissenfels.鈥? The unhappy princess, distracted by these griefs, had grown thin and pale. It was soon rumored throughout the court that the king had written to Weissenfels, and that the duke was on his way to seize his reluctant bride. In this emergence, the queen鈥檚 friend, Baron Borck, suggested to her that, in order to get rid of the obnoxious Weissenfels, she should so far yield to the wishes of the king as to give up the English alliance, and propose a third party, who might be more acceptable to Wilhelmina. But who shall this substitute be? "I was out on a case," he explained. "When I got back to the office I saw the police notification. But you had already left when I tried to call you up." The king had a logical mind. He could keenly feel where the argument pinched. He seemed quite troubled. After a moment鈥檚 pause, he said, 鈥淲ell, I will do it.鈥?Then, turning to the queen, he said, 鈥淵ou, Phiekin, may write to your brother, after I am dead, and tell him that I forgave him, and died at peace with him.鈥? 三级黄色_未满18岁禁止入内_性感美女_三级黄;色_日本黄大片免费播放 Brooks was speaking earnestly and I looked questioningly at Kennedy. 527 鈥淧.S.鈥擸ou may, in this occurrence, say what Francis I., after the battle of Pavia, wrote to his mother: 鈥楢ll is lost except honor.鈥?As I do not yet completely understand the affair, I forbear to judge of it, for it is altogether extraordinary.鈥?

On Saturday morning, August 28, 1756, the Prussian army, over one hundred thousand strong, entered Saxony at three different points on the northern frontier. Frederick, with about sixty thousand troops, crossed the Elbe at Torgau, and seized upon Leipsic. Duke Ferdinand, of Hanover, led his columns405 across the frontier about eighty miles to the right. The Duke of Brunswick-Bevern crossed about the same distance to the left. Each column was stronger than the whole Saxon army. The appointed place of rendezvous for the three divisions was the city of Dresden, the capital of Saxony. By the route marked out, each column had a distance of about one hundred and fifty miles to traverse.
