the power

and the glory...

Gogo, don't cry.

And there they were before

his tent on the battlefield.

I remember as if

it were yesterday.

Before his tent,

uh, in council.

And as I rode up

to the general,

the great Napoleon himself,

I... This... this... a

Oui, you got off

your horse.


I dismounted,

giving the grand salute.

Awaited orders.

I wish we could

keep him here with us,

with Mimsey.

If these relatives in London

shouldn't be gentle

or understanding with him.

Such a strange child,

and so sensitive.

Oh, well,

I suppose we shall know soon.


said the great Napoleon,

"Maj. Duquesnois"...



It was a night in late autumn,

frost was on the ground,

but there were

no fires lighted

that the enemy might see

and there they sat,

Napoleon and his generals.

Crick! Crick!

Mrs. Dorian, please.

What name,

please, sir?

Colonel Forsythe,

from London.

Madame Dorian

has been expecting you.

Won't you

please come in, sir?

Thank you.



Ha. That is better.

If you do not answer

if I say, "Crick,"

how do I know

you are paying attention?

You got off

your horse.



said the great Napoleon...

Yes, there they are.


My daughter.

Oh, yes.

They're about

the same age

and the dearest children

together I've ever seen.


I'm afraid it's another loss.


Your uncle is here

from London.

How do you do, sir?

And this is your daughter?

How do you do, my dear?

Uh, how do you do?


let's have a look at you.


Yes, you have

your mother's eyes.

And what have we here?

Ah, sturdy.

Sturdy. That's very important

on a horse.

Ah, good wrist.

Good hand.

A fine figure of a horseman.

Many ladies will watch

you ride by, my boy.
