鈥淢y children,鈥?said Frederick that night at parole, 鈥渁fter such a day鈥檚 work you deserve rest. This day will send the renown of your name and that of the nation down to the latest posterity.鈥? Even Wilhelmina had accepted the Prince of Baireuth, whom she had never seen, only to avoid being sacrificed to men whom she utterly loathed.

I turned into my berth, but not at once to sleep. I lay thinking, reflecting on the possibility of feeling the vessel going down, down,鈥攁nd reflecting on what an easy death drowning would be. Still, I did not really expect to be drowned.
