NAPOLEON III. AT SEDAN
Zola's Story That He Rouged His
Cheeks Before the Battle Is
Th\ author of "Tho Empress Euge
nio, 1870-1910," writes: In Miscellany
(April 10) you refer to "the story that)
Napoleon 111., pale and haggard with
illness, rouged Ills cheeks before the
battle of Sedan, to make a fine and
encouraging appearance hi fore tho
troops," and Zola's description of the
emperor on that fatal day is cited
from the powerful “Debacle” In sup
port of the "story.” Allow me to say
that, if tho evidence of some who
were with the emperor on the day of
the battle Is deemed worthy of con
sideration (and personally I have no
doubt about It), Zola was entirely
wrong. By his own account, ho com
posed his marvelous narrative from
hearsay. He had not the advantage,
as 1 had, of being on the battlefield
(with the Germans) from early morn
lug until nightfall.
Some fife years ago the question
“Was the emperor's face rouged at the
battle of Sedan?” was very fully dis
cussed in the Paris papers, and the
late Paul de Cassagnac and the still
living Robert Mitchell (who were with
the emperor during the fighting) were
among other eye-witnesses who gave
nil absolute denial to Zola’s assertion.
Others testify to the samo effect.
Princess Mntliilde, the emperor's
cousin, scouted the Idea that Napoleon
was rouged, although as she was not
at Sedan her evidence Is not of much
account. On other points I can per
sonally confirm Zola’s picture of the
horrors of the battlefield of the first of
