Prince de Soubise: "I am sorry my dears, but you must depart Hamelburg. The enemy approaches rapidly and as you see -- this village has suffered already from their long shots. Ride south along the road where you will see our cavalry and infantry approaching."

Lady Belle Silhouette: "Certainement Monsieur l' Maréchal."

Lady Diana Pettygree: "We shall. Merci."

Martha: "My hat is...."

Lady Belle Silhouette: "There in the distance - our horsemen are arrayed in line of battle."

Lady Diana Pettygree: "Oui! --- I see them too. Ride at the gallop! HA!"

l'Duc de Fitzjames: "My ladies, what are you about?"

Lady Diana Pettygree: "We've come from l'Prince de Soubise."

Lady Belle Silhouette: "He remarked the Allied Army approaches fast. Hamelburg is already under fire of their cannons. You must ride to the sound of the guns! I wish we knew more."

Lady Bell Silhouette: "What about you --- dear reader? What do you know?"
