The commandant, Baron Vounianski, received them with great kindness, and suddenly as she raised her veil, exclaimed 鈥淎h, Princess!鈥 At first she feared he recognised Mademoiselle d鈥橭rl茅ans, but soon found out that an extraordinary likeness to a Moravian, Princess von Lansberg, made him suppose her to be that person, and no denial on her part altered his conviction.
