HISTORICAL FICTION IN SERIAL
--------------------------------------------------------
The Crime of the Brigadier
by A. Conan Doyle

Episode 3

"Now," said he, "if you will look at this plan you will have no
difficulty in understanding what it is that I wish you to do.
These are the lines of Torres Vedras.  You will perceive that they cover
a vast space, and you will realize that the English can only hold a
position here and there.  Once through the lines you have twenty-five
miles of open country which lie between them and Lisbon.  It is very
important to me to learn how Wellington's troops are distributed
throughout that space, and it is my wish that you should go and
ascertain."

His words turned me cold.

"Sir," said I, "it is impossible that a colonel of light cavalry should
condescend to act as a spy."

He laughed and clapped me on the shoulder.

"You would not be a Hussar if you were not a hothead," said he.  "If you
will listen you will understand that I have not asked you to act as a
spy.  What do you think of that horse?"

He had conducted me to the opening of his tent, and there was a Chasseur
who led up and down a most admirable creature.  He was a dapple grey,
not very tall--a little over fifteen hands perhaps--but with the short
head and splendid arch of the neck which comes with the Arab blood.
His shoulders and haunches were so muscular, and yet his legs so fine,
that it thrilled me with joy just to gaze upon him.  A fine horse or a
beautiful woman, I cannot look at them unmoved, even now when seventy
winters have chilled my blood.  You can think how it was in the year
'10.

"This," said Massena, "is Voltigeur, the swiftest horse in our army.
What I desire is that you should start to-night, ride round the lines
upon the flank, make your way across the enemy's rear, and return upon
the other flank, bringing me news of his dispositions.  You will wear a
uniform, and will, therefore, if captured, be safe from the death of a
spy.  It is probable that you will get through the lines unchallenged,
for the posts are very scattered.  Once through, in daylight you can
outride anything which you meet, and if you keep off the roads you may
escape entirely unnoticed.  If you have not reported yourself by
tomorrow night, I will understand that you are taken, and I will offer
them Colonel Petrie in exchange."
