Frederick, watching the bombardment from an eminence, was much exposed to the return fire of the Austrians. He called upon others to take care of themselves, but seemed regardless of his own personal safety. His cousin, Prince William, and a page, were both struck down at his side by a cannon-ball. 鈥淭he king respects his mother,鈥?the same writer adds. 鈥淪he is the only female to whom he pays any sort of attention.
