Off to the sweet country of the windmills
"The feature of the flight of the ex-Emperor and his son the ex-Crown Prince into Holland is that, unlike their prototypes Sancho Panza and Don Quixote, although they have always been tilting at windmills they are now deprived of their lances. Ignominy has been added to utter foolishness. Napoleon did maintain a certain dignity in exile, but these creepers over the border went into exile unhonoured and unwept. True, the Crown Prince offered to remain with his army, but the hero of Verdun was not wanted, and the Country of the Windmills was advised as the best place for a long rest cure."
