I never saw her Royal Higtii. neas take the bath, consrquently I cannot tell.

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. .

I have heard her Royal Highnejiit ff�quently.|9i;ntion the affair, and say that she .wou.'d always Jiay^wm^body near her. I can't recollect her precise viords. .
