Amidst the conspiracy of the Holy League to make the Duke of Anjou king, Bussy d’Amboise falls in love with a lady of the court of Henry III — a lady with a very jealous husband! (An abridged translation of La dame de Monsoreau.)
"Never mind, I am going." "Alone?" "No, with Maugiron and Schomberg. We hunt for the king." "Ah! yes, I understand," said Maugiron and Schomberg. "The king wishes a boar's head for breakfast to-morrow." "With the neck dressed ร  l'Italienne," said Maugiron, alluding to the turn-down collar which Bussy wore in opposition to their ruffs. "Ah, ah," said D'Epernon, "I understand." "What is it?" asked D'O, "for I do not." "Ah! look round you." "Well!" "Did any one laugh at us here?" "Yes, Bussy." "Well, that is the wild boar the king wants." "You think the king----" "He asks for it." "Well, then, so be it. But how do we hunt?" "In ambush; it is the surest." Bussy remarked the conference, and, not doubting that they were talking of him, approached, with his friends. "Look, Antragues, look, Ribeirac," said he, "how they are grouped; it is quite touching; it might be Euryale and Nisus, Damon and Pythias, Castor and----. But where is Pollux?"
