Excerpt from The Romance of L'aiglon: Authorized Translation From the French
The young man, who is tall, very pale, and very slender, raises his head in an abstracted manner. He is dressed in the Austrian uniform, and his brow, grave and sad, seems to indicate noble but bit ter thoughts. With feverish hands he turns over a pile of parchments before him, and the further he reads the more does his countenance contract and his face darken.
