None whatever. . What was your opinion of Bergami as a -.ervant of her Royal Hifhnces? I .must here confess that he was excessively attentive and most ready iu his duly. Was he, from your knowledge of him, a iiersen likely to be seUcted, from his diity.and allachmeul, lo guard the person of her Royal Highness when necessary ? I should think from any thing I have seen of him, and from the conduct of Marquis    - (the Cjiamherlaiu uf the Grand Duke of Badeii) towards him, that there was sufficient to authorise his appointment to that duty. Was there uo suspicion excited in your own mind ia consequence of that circitmslaitce ?   None. .

Did you ever express that senlimeut to the Princess of Wales ?   I never did. In giving yourrea.iOns why you did not thinlc it degrading to the station of her Royal Highness lo have a male domestic sleeping in ihe tent with her, I think you said that Ihere was no mystery in the case, as Ihe comniunicaiion by Ihe hatchways to the lent were always open ; yuu have said that oue night io attempting lo go up the hatchway yoii found the lent closeil, did you think there was any mystery in that? Tbe tent being closed, I supposed her Royal Highness retired to rest; I did not think there was any mastery iu that. Was Bergami ip lite tent at that periud?
