Excerpt from Morton's Hope, Vol. 2: Or the Memoirs of a Provincial
Contrary to my expectations, I do not find that I have preserved any thing remarkable concerning the supper at Poodleberg's. I should have passed it over without a comment, if it had not been necessary to show the beginning of a plot of Pappenheim's, which was frustrated. This plot, in conjunction with another undertaken about the same time by Trump Von Toggenburg, led mainly to a singular event, which I shall soon have occasion to detail, and with which it is my purpose to conclude this portion of my biography.
I arrived with Lackland at the house of the professor at about nine o'clock. This establishment was on a decidedly more extensive scale than Frau Von Rumplestern's. A servant in a porter's gala dress presented himself at the door on our arrival, and I immediately recognised by his voice, my acquaintance, Diedrich. We were announced in due form, and on ascending to the drawing-room, found the company already assembled.
His "Magnificence," the Pro-Rector, Professor, Counsellor, and Baron Von Poodleberg, advanced in a dignified manner to receive us.
