'CHAPTER XXIX.- (Continued.) , -- ' ^ The next day, after the Peter the Great Party, Sir Richard raised his head from a monstrous ledger over which he was poripg, to ask Blackader what was the nature of the Itory he had told about that sovereign on the previous evening. He had not paid much attention at the time, but Fraaer and Jenkins's security on Baltic wheat con signments recalled it to him. Blackader had obstinately forgotten. Still, as it was about the only point of Eussian history with which Sir Eichard ?was acquainted, we believe, in spite of the alleged non-attention, he long retained the etory in his mind. - The great Czar had married a serf, a - . slave, a captive of his own bow and spear. That was certainly very extraordinary. He was an extraordinary man, and he snight do extraordinary things, but he was not the ' only one that had ever existed. The world had never blamed him for what ,...
