TOWARD EIGHT in the morning His Majesty arrived in Seelenhorst. General Count Görtz was also in the carriage. While the horses were being changed, the king talked to the officers of the Ziethen Hussars, whose squadrons were put out to pasture in the surrounding villages; I was not noticed. Then the trip continued. Because the dams over which the road ran were too narrow I could not ride next to the carriage. In Dechtow, His Majesty caught sight of Captain von Ziethen, the owner of Dechtow, and since the road became wider, kept him at his side until the boundary of the estate was reached. Here the horses were changed again, and Captain von Rathenow, lord of Carwesee, an old favorite of the king, stepped to the carriage.
