犯 禁 - 古德明

Sir Hudson Lowe served from 1815 to 1821 as governor of St Helena, where he was gaoler of Napoleon. He ordered that none of the British garrison on the island should have any intercourse whatsoever with Napoleon or his suite, beyond the common rules of politeness.
One day, young Baron Las Cases, Napoleon's secretary, happening to be out on horseback, met Major Gorrequer, Lieutenant Montgomery, another officer, and Dr Varling, who were going to the camp to dine. In order to play off a joke, he placed his horse across the road, and purposely detained them in conversation for twenty minutes, under the pretence of inquiring with great anxiety respecting the health of Sir Hudson and Lady Howe, to the no small annoyance of all the party, except Lieutenant Montgomery, who seemed greatly to enjoy this wicked freak. Las Cases, having thus caused an infringement of the governor's order, rode homewards. Napoleon laughed heartily when Las Cases told him of the joke.
赫德森.洛爵士一八一五到一八二一年任聖赫勒拿總督,負責看守在囚的拿破崙。他下令島上英國駐軍,除禮貌上的招呼,一律不得和拿破崙或其隨從有任何交誼。
年輕的拉斯卡斯男爵是拿破崙的秘書,有一天騎馬外出,碰見戈勒基埃少校、蒙哥馬利中尉、另一名軍官以及瓦林醫生,四人正往軍營吃晚飯。他有心開玩笑,橫馬攔着去路,裝出一副非常關心的樣子,向他們詢問洛爵士和他夫人身體怎樣,有心拖延,跟他們談了二十分鐘,令他們很不耐煩,只有蒙哥馬利中尉似乎覺得這惡作劇很有趣。拉斯卡斯眼看已令四人違背了洛爵士的命令,這才策馬回家。拿破崙聽到這惡作劇,也開懷大笑。
