Frederick wrote to his minister Podewils in Berlin, under date of Neisse, March 29, 1745, as follows: 鈥淲e find ourselves in a great crisis. If we don鈥檛 by mediation of England get peace, our enemies from different sides will come plunging in against me. Peace I can not force them to. But if we must have war, we will either beat them, or none of us will ever see Berlin again.鈥? 鈥淗is majesty commands me to inform your royal highness that he has cause to be greatly discontented with you; that you deserve to have a court-martial held over you, which would sentence you and all your generals to death; but that his majesty will not carry the matter so far, being unable to forget that in the chief general he has a brother.鈥? Taking off his hat, he slightly saluted them, and retired behind the curtain into the interior tent. Career! broke out old Max, who had listened to all this, and much more, with an increasingly dismayed and lowering expression of countenance. "Why, what's his career to be? He's been brought up to do nothing! It 'ud be his only chance to get hold of a wife with a bit o' money. Then he might act the gentleman at his ease; and maybe his fine friends 'ud help him when they found he didn't want it.

Gradually, the Rebels had invested much of the Hadriacum Lowland with its dome-farms and had captured Regina, another of the planet's six dome-cities. We have now reached the summer of 1729. George II. was a weak-minded, though a proud, conceited man, who, as King of England, assumed airs of superiority which greatly annoyed his irascible and petulant brother-in-law, Frederick William. Flushed with his new dignity, he visited his hereditary domain of Hanover. The journey led him through a portion of the Prussian territory. Courtesy required that George II. should announce that intention to the Prussian king. Courtesy also required that, as the British monarch passed over Prussian soil, Frederick William should furnish him with free post-horses. 鈥淚 will furnish the post-horses,鈥?said Frederick William, 鈥渋f the king apprise me of his intention. If he do not, I shall do nothing about it.鈥?George did not write. In affected unconsciousness that there was any such person in the world as the Prussian king, he crossed the Prussian territory, paid for his own post-horses, and did not even condescend to give Frederick William any notice of his arrival in Hanover. The King of Prussia, who could not but be conscious of the vast inferiority of Prussia to England, stung to the quick by this contemptuous treatment, growled ferociously in the Tobacco Parliament. Reginald wouldn't go abroad, except to Italy. Nor, indeed, anywhere in Italy but to Naples. Under these circumstances, Frederick made indirect but vigorous exertions to bring the war to a close. 鈥淚 am ready and desirous now,鈥?he said, 鈥渁s at all times, for peace. I will immediately sheathe the sword if I can be guaranteed the possession of Silesia.鈥?
