My firttday in Versailles (France) was
a Sunday, and my first act wns to seek
a church. On my way I saw a Prussian
personage in uniform cropping the street,
to whomever one profoundly bowed and
uncovered. On cioiu near this per
sonage he smiled and held out his hnud ;
jlieu asked why I wa in Versailles, gave
me his address, and told me to call on hi in
the next day and tell him about the loss
of the captain. To me this meeting waa
most opportune ; jtjbitme, know that I
bad a friend at headquarters whose good
will I could reckon on, aud now 1 knew
that if I got into a difficulty I should be
helped out of it. Grateful for this chance,
I pursued my way aud found the church
of Notre Damo filled exclusively by the
French. And again 1 was struck by the
downcast humiliation of that people in its
saddest aspect, i The fw of the better
classes that remained were there as well
aa the toarroi'M and the poor. All tba
ladies were in deep mourning, the mea
had laid aside all care about their dress,
and the children Appeared lo have lot-t ail
that natural gayety which even form
ality of church fails to eKiioguih in oidi
nary times. Whether Aha women were
weepingxfor lost relatives or a trodden,
down country 1 knew-nt, but sadly they
wept, and what touched me deepest was
ihe sight of the o,!d men, fathers and
fsraudlaihers who hud witnessed ihe glo
