Chapter 4 The Marquis of Evremonde
The Marquis of Evremonde was a disappointed man. He had waited for hours at the palace of the King of France, but the King had not spoken to him. Angrily, the Marquis got into his coach and told the driver to take him home. Very soon the coach was driving fast out of Paris, and the people in the narrow streets had to run to get out of the way—if they could. At the corner of a street in Saint Antoine, one of the coach wheels hit something, and the people in the street screamed loudly. The horses were frightened and stopped.
"What has gone wrong?" asked the Marquis calmly, looking out of the window of the coach. A tall man had picked something up from under the feet of the horses and was crying loudly over it.
"Why is that man making that terrible noise?" asked the Marquis impatiently.
"I'm sorry, Monsieur the Marquis. It is his child, " said one of the people.
"Dead！Killea！"screamed the man.
