1905. Napoleon in Germany. An Historical Novel. Muhlbach is the pseudonym of Mrs. Luise Mundt. Writing as Muhlbach she produced more than fifty novels and her works in their entirety comprise almost one hundred volumes. Her fame rests on her historical romance novels. The story begins: The population of Vienna was paralyzed with terror; a heavy gloom weighed down all minds, and the strength of the stoutest hearts seemed broken. Couriers had arrived today from the camp of the army, and brought the dreadful tidings of an overwhelming defeat of the Austrian forces. Bonaparte, the young general of the French Republic, who in the course of one year (1796), had won as many battles and as much glory as many a great and illustrious warrior during the whole course of an eventful life-Bonaparte had crossed the Italian Alps with the serried columns of his army, and the most trusted military leaders of Austria were fleeing before him in dismay.

Let me ask you, then, what all this means? Why did you excuse the chief of police, who evidently had not done his duty and been guilty of a lack of vigilance? And why did you let these rascals go, instead of having them whipped to death?
