returned with some dililculty to Pres; bourg, by begging tbr alms! Ann-r having there in vain sought for some means of subsistence, findmg that his religion was the ch1et`ub=l:\c1e to all his etibrts, and being ncumily un thc point of dying with lhmine, he yielded ru the voice of despair, changed his faith, and assumed the habit of one of the brethren ot` nhe order of charity. Thistimely step saved him; lbr henceforth he could not only live, but he tbund himself entirely at his ease. As the lhxrernity In which he now belonged, was chietiy eunplnyed in :he care of Lhe sick, he took advantage of this opportuniny m extend his knowledge ut' medicine. lie accnrdingly read, remarked, made observations; and, in the course of a tbw years, acquired 1\ degree of knowledge, that procured him ceiebrily. It was thus, that Brother Firmian, for so he “ss called in the convent, distinguished himself above all his colleagues, and happy was the patient confided to his care. Among other principal estates, it so lmppened, lhaz the Prmce dc Lichteniteiu possessed that of Feldsperg in Muravin, where he passed :wo or three mouths every year. Having heard a great deal about Brother Firmian, he desired he might he sent to him from Presburg; and, being mnch delighted with his knowledge, Ins skill, and his conversation, he called him in, whenever he was amicted with any disease. The eunfidence placed in this physician probably aided the success of the remedies he prescribed ; for he mved his life during Iwo severe indispositionl, for which he was richly rewarded, and thus became enabled rn serve his cnnvem. Bu: ic never once entered, eizher into his mind, or that of' the Prince, that he was the brother of Schroeder; and since his apnsmcy, zx certain degree of shame prevented him from kee ing upany communication with his fanxify. On one hand, he had liule or no intercourse wish zhe court of :he Prince while his Highness resided an Vienna; und on the other, Maior Schrceder, although he saw his pm. ,tecmr dailyin the capital, yet never followed him I0 Feldsperg, his presence being indispensahle at the milimryschoal.

In shurt, the prince gut up, was able to walk about his apammentg receive cu|uJ puny, and do bunmeas as usual. Une morning, as Brntber Fi|'KIlL'\l) was wailing in the amti-chrunber to see the prxnce, a|| ullicer of artillery mnde his appearance; and hum the first moment he discovered him Lo possess a most singular and 8L(l'$\!}l'(|i|\3l`_y remblnncé to his elder brother, frnm whom he had been for su nanny years separated. But this uniform, which announced a distinguished rank, still kept him in doubt; nolwithstanding lhis, the more he looked, the more he was struck with the resemblance; and after he heard him address a few words Ln the Prince':\ valet dn Chambre, his conjectures w¢»re fully conGrmed, especially diet having l-aken the latter aside, and learned his name. At leng&h,` becoming bold, he approached him, asked him if his namewni not Schroeder, and if he had not a brother called William? The major on this bocame more attentive and condescending; he demanded, with the uir of Sl man greatly interested in the questio||,whether he was alive, and ifhis intbrumn! could give any tidings of him? ()n being told dnt he could, be approached still nearer, hu! wiQu»az recognizing him; and, at length, on Learning the particulars, he cutlaimcde “ Good Heaven! is it you! and in :his habit? Omy brother! my brother!" Having said this, they rushed into each oLher's arms, uttering cries ofjoy az the same lime. The Prince de Lichten~ stein, who was in his library, heard ihe noise; anél, enquiring of hm domesticl, soon leuned the parxiculars. On this, he summoned the monk and the otlicer before him; commended their fmzcnnd utfection; praised lbqiz respective merits; and concluded the s¢ene, hymnguringthem both of Lhe cuminumrcedf his suppnrz and prmecrion, as he felicilnterf himselfgreally at having two >uch vgluable men attached no his person.
