Administrator. M. D鈥橝rget, private secretary of the French minister Valori, gives an interesting account of an interview he held with Frederick at this time. M. D鈥橝rget was quite a favorite of the king, who conversed with him with unusual frankness. 久久综合九色综合97-我要色综合久久-久久精品热线免费 In the latter part of April, the weather being very fine, the king decided to leave Berlin and retire to his rural palace at Potsdam. It seems, however, that he was fully aware that his days were nearly ended, for upon leaving the city he said, 鈥淔are thee well, then, Berlin; I am going to die in Potsdam.鈥?The winter had been one of almost unprecedented severity, and the month of May was cold and wet. As the days wore on the king鈥檚 health fluctuated, and he was continually struggling between life and death. The king, with all his great imperfections, was a thoughtful man. As he daily drew near the grave, the dread realities of the eternal world oppressed his mind. He sent for three clergymen of distinction, to converse with them respecting his preparation for the final judgment. It seems that they were very faithful with him, reminding him of his many acts of violence and tyranny, alluding particularly to his hanging Baron Schlubhut, at K?nigsberg, without even a trial.

The deadly sin of slavery is its denial of humanity to man. This has been the sin of oppression, in every age. To tread down, to vilify and crush, the image of God, in the person of the poor and lowly, has been the great sin of man since the creation of the world. Against this sin all the prophets of ancient times poured forth their thunders. A still stronger witness was borne against this sin when God, in Jesus Christ, took human nature, and made each human being a brother of the Lord. But the last and most sublime witness shall be borne when a Man shall judge the whole earth鈥攁 Man who shall acknowledge for His brother the meanest slave, equally with the proudest master. 6 And I will go to another place, and go down into it, and do like you."
