When we started for our drive the sun was shining brightly on Munich, and the air wasfull of the joyousness of early summer. Just as we were about to depart, Herr Delbr ck (thema tre d'h tel of the Quatre Saisons, where I was staying) came down, bareheaded, to thecarriage and, after wishing me a pleasant drive, said to the coachman, still holding his handon the handle of the carriage door: 'Remember you are back by nightfall. The sky looks bright but there is a shiver in thenorth wind that says there may be a sudden storm. But I am sure you will not be late.' Herehe smiled, and added, 'for you know what night it is.'Johann answered with an emphatic, 'Ja, mein Herr, ' and, touching his hat, drove offquickly. When we had cleared the town, I said, after signalling to him to stop: 'Tell me, Johann, what is tonight?'He crossed himself, as he answered laconically: 'Walpurgis nacht.' Then he took out hiswatch, a great, old-fashioned German silver thing as big as a turnip, and looked at it, withhis eyebrows gathered together and a little impatient shrug of his shoulders. I realised thatthis was his way of respectfully protesting against the unnecessary delay, and sank back inthe carriage, merely motioning him to proceed. He started off rapidly, as if to make up forlost time. Every now and then the horses seemed to throw up their heads and sniffed theair suspiciously. On such occasions I often looked round in alarm. The road was prettybleak, for we were traversing a sort of high, wind-swept plateau. As we drove, I saw a roadthat looked but little used, and which seemed to dip through a little, winding valley. Itlooked so inviting that, even at the risk of offending him, I called Johann to stop-and whenhe had pulled up, I told him I would like to drive down that road. He made all sorts ofexcuses, and frequently crossed himself as he spoke. This somewhat piqued my curiosity, so I asked him various questions. He answered fencingly, and repeatedly looked at hiswatch in protest. Finally I said: 'Well, Johann, I want to go down this road. I shall not ask you to come unless you like; buttell me why you do not like to go, that is all I ask.' For answer he seemed to throw himselfoff the box, so quickly did he reach the ground. Then he stretched out his hands appealinglyto me, and implored me not to go. There was just enough of English mixed with the Germanfor me to understand the drift of his talk. He seemed always just about to tell mesomething-the very idea of which evidently frightened him; but each time he pulledhimself up, saying, as he crossed himself: 'Walpurgis-Nacht '
