The Imperial Camp.
We shall gain nothing at this work, sirs! He beats one troop after another; and whoever escapes death or captivity would rather fly to Turkey than return to the camp. Thus our force diminishes daily. We must attack him once for all, and in earnest. I will go myself, and he shall find with whom he has to deal.
We are all content; but he is so well acquainted with the country, and knows every path and ravine so thoroughly, that he will be as difficult to find as a rat in a barn.
I warrant you we’ll ferret him out. On towards Jaxthausen! Whether he like it or not, he must come to defend his castle.
Shall our whole force march?
Yes, certainly—do you know that a hundred of us are melted away already?
Then let us away with speed, before the whole snowball dissolves; for this is warm work, and we stand here like butter in the sunshine.
[Exeunt—a march sounded.
