19 PLAN OF CAMPAIGN.
D'Artagnan went straight to M.de Treville's.
He had reflected that in a few minutes the cardinal would be warned by this cursed stranger, who appeared to be his agent, and he judged, with reason, he had not a moment to lose.
The heart of the young man overflowed with joy.
An opportunity presented itself to him in which there would be at the same time glory to be acquired, and money to be gained; and as a far higher encouragement, it brought him into close intimacy with a woman he adored.
This chance did, then, for him at once more than he would have dared to ask of Providence.
M.de Treville was in his saloon with his habitual court of gentlemen.
D'Artagnan, who was known as a familiar of the house, went straight to his office, and sent word that he wished to see him on something of importance.
D'Artagnan had been there scarcely five minutes when M.de Treville entered.
At the first glance, and by the joy which was painted on his countenance, the worthy captain plainly perceived that something new was on foot.
