CHAPTER VIII. page 47

Another emigrant arrived here penniless, but meeting a friend,
obtained the loan of a few crowns, nearly his all. With these he
went to the rooms, put down his stake, and won. He then
successively doubled his stakes till he closed the evening with a
hundred louis in his pocket. He went to his friend, and with
mutual congratulations they resolved to venture no more, and
calculated how long their gains would support them from absolute
want, and thus seemed to strengthen their wise resolution.

The next night, however, the lucky gambler returned to the room--
but only to be a spectator, as he firmly said. Alas! his
resolution failed him, and he quitted the tables indebted to a
charitable bystander for a livre or two, to pay for his petty
refreshments.

It is said that the annual profit to the bankers was 120,000
florins, or L14,000.
