And yet people found the opportunity to amuse themselves, to dance and to go to the theatre, to enjoy music and open-air cafes and promenades in the Palais Royal. New fashions in dress made their appearance, milliners produced fresh "creations," and jewellers were not idle. A grim sense of humour, born of the very intensity of ever-present danger, had dubbed the cut of certain tunics "tete tranche," or a favourite ragout was called "a la guillotine." On three evenings only during the past memorable four and a half years did the theatres close their doors, and these evenings were the ones immediately following that terrible 2nd of September the day of the butchery outside the Abbaye prison, when Paris herself was aghast with horror, and the cries of the massacred might have drowned the calls of the audience whose hands upraised for plaudits would still be dripping with blood. On all other evenings of these same four and a half years the theatres in the Rue de Richelieu, in the Palais Royal, the Luxembourg, and others, had raised their curtains and taken money at their doors. The same audience that earlier in the day had whiled away the time by witnessing the ever-recurrent dramas of the Place de la Revolution assembled here in the evenings and filled stalls, boxes, and tiers, laughing over the satires of Voltaire or weeping over the sentimental tragedies of persecuted Romeos and innocent Juliets. Death knocked at so many doors these days! He was so constant a guest in the houses of relatives and friends that those who had merely shaken him by the hand, those on whom he had smiled, and whom he, still smiling, had passed indulgently by, looked on him with that subtle contempt born of familiarity, shrugged their shoulders at his passage, and envisaged his probable visit on the morrow with lighthearted indifference. Paris-despite the horrors that had stained her walls had remained a city of pleasure, and the knife of the guillotine did scarce descend more often than did the drop-scenes on the stage.

In Paris, that city of poets and soldiers, the blood-stained walls still echo with cries of horror from the massacres of the Revolution. And now a new threat hangs over the great city: for the Committee of General Security has just acquired full powers to invade private homes, to act at will against the enemies of public welfare -- and to interrogate them without witnesses. This new law, Robespierre's latest whim, is no less than a ruse to beat up game for the thirsty guillotine News soon reaches the ears of that champion of the helpless and the innocent, the mysterious and ingenious Englishman known in France only as . . . the Scarlet Pimpernel. English novelist and playwright Baroness Emmuska Orczy (1865-1947) achieved enduring success with her novels of politics, intrigue and underground resistance, including El Dorado, set during the French Revolution.
