But their number door phones

Ney, and Murat, who were close to that region of fire, and sometimes even rode into it, several times led immense masses of orderly troops into that region. But instead of what had invariably happened in all their previous battles, instead of hearing that the enemy were in flight, the disciplined masses of troops came back in undisciplined, panic-stricken crowds. They formed them in good order again, but their number was steadily dwindling.

In the middle of the day Murat sent his adjutant to Napoleon with a request for reinforcements. Napoleon was sitting under the redoubt, drinking punch, when door phones Murat's adjutant galloped to him with the message that the Russians would be routed if his majesty would let them have another division. Reinforcements? said Napoleon, with stern astonishment, staring, as though failing to comprehend his words, at the handsome, boyish adjutant, who wore his black hair in floating curls, like Murat's own.

Reinforcements! thought Napoleon. How can they want reinforcements when they have half the army already, concentrated against one weak, unsupported flank of the Russians? Tell the King of Naples, said Napoleon sternly, that it is not midday, and I don't yet see clearly over my chess-board. You door bell
