Many citizens, seeing the women flying toward the High Street, leaving their children crying at the open doors, hastened to don the cuirass, and supporting their somewhat uncertain courage with a musket or a partisan, directed their steps toward the hostelry of the Jolly Miller, before which was gathered, increasing every minute, a compact group, vociferous and full of curiosity. In those times panics were common, and few days passed without some city or other registering in its archives an event of this kind. There were nobles, who made war against each other; there was the king, who made war against the cardinal; there was Spain, which made war against the king. Then, in addition to these concealed or public, secret or open wars, there were robbers, mendicants, Huguenots, wolves, and scoundrels, who made war upon everybody. The citizens always took up arms readily against thieves, wolves or scoundrels, often against nobles or Huguenots, sometimes against the king, but never against cardinal or Spain. It resulted, then, from this habit that on the said first Monday of April, , the citizens, on hearing the clamor, and seeing neither the red—and—yellow standard nor the livery of the Duc de Richelieu, rushed toward the hostel of the Jolly Miller.

I have nothing to give you, my son, but fifteen crowns, my horse, and the counsels you have just heard. Your mother will add to them a recipe for a certain balsam, which she had from a Bohemian and which has the miraculous virtue of curing all wounds that do not reach the heart.
Take advantage of all, and live happily and long. All went well until they stopped at Chantilly for breakfast. There, Porthos got in an argument when a man insisted that the cardinal was the true ruler of France. Enraged, Porthos drew his sword.
The rest of the group rode off. Later that day they came across a group of men working on the road. The men seemed to be doing nothing but making muddy holes. Because Aramis did not like to get his boots dirty, he scolded them.
At midnight, they stopped to rest at Amiens. The jovial innkeeper there seemed to be the most honest, decent man in the world. When Athos looked out the window, he saw his servant lying unconscious. Clearly, the poor man had been hit on the head. They decided to leave as soon as possible.
But when Athos went to pay the bill, he had a nasty surprise. Hurry on your way! They found a ship headed for England—and just in time! The harbor had been closed by order of the cardinal.
