Description The Open Door de Blanche Willis Howard:

Excerpt from The Open Door "What are you going to be when you are a man?" the Countess von Kronfels' guests would ask handsome little Hugo, as he pranced about the cheerful samovar, begging for nine lumps of sugar in his infinitesimally diluted tea. "King!" the child would reply with superb conviction, straightening his four-year-old back, and regarding them an instant with bold, unconscious eyes, before resuming his quest. Why the ladies always made this inquiry, and why they always laughed at his reply, he did not deign to consider. Indeed, he scarcely noticed them. He was too busy, too serious, too intent upon pleasantly personal matters. Sweets for the moment, royalty later- such was his clearly denned sketch of existence. But Fate drew other lines. More than a score of swift years passed. The child became a man. His throne was an invalid's chair- his sceptre, a crutch- his crown, pain. He had had, indeed, his bright, brief reign, his goodly share of the purple state which by the grace of this obsequious world encompasses the heir to an old name and large wealth- and he had revelled in that more glorious sovereignty which nature may deny a prince and lovingly bestow upon a vagabond, - the absolute monarchy of youth, beauty, and strength, the kingship of a fearless spirit.
