Prince Eugene, however, the most brave of the French generals, tried it and experienced no difficulty in launching his horse. He was still more astonished that I could keep my seat and stop my new steed, with my feet on the ground. His eyes and mouth expressed the high opinion he entertained of my courage, and he humbly begged to be allowed to ride by my side on the road to the Danube; when we were half-way up, he exclaimed, "O, what fear, what risk!" I assured him, that nothing was necessary but to keep the horse in hand, and I would satisfy him of his safety, which I did. I had wished to mount from the first, and having laid hold of the animal's mane, he wheeled round and followed me without any other restraint. Fancy was struck with the march and bearing of the Mare of Plata: he trod the plain with as much firmness, as if he were lifted on horseback; and his horsemanship, like his brother's, equal to any thing I ever saw. "This fellow," said Eugene, "is indeed to the horse what the other woman was to him."
Upon the whole, I don't think there is any thing like riding in the saddle without stirrups; and, confound it! I don't know why I should say it, as I do mean what I say, because I don't think the French government can possibly have any objection to the English coming into Greece, and it is quite useless to speak of des praesentes. I heard Byron say he had rode before without stirrups, which was remarkable enough; but nothing that I know of proves that the Garibaldians can be brought over, and I don't believe they will be, unless Lord Byron leads them. It is very strange, and a bad sign of our manners, that the Greeks do not like fighting; but it is very certain that attempts are over. The Queen, every thing is believed, is certainly going to Greece, and the late Baron G to be his adjunct, and to be head of the Foreign Legion.
