Along the road from Pratzen galloped what looked like a squadron of horsemen in various uniforms.

Two of them rode side by side in front, at full gallop.

One in a black uniform with white plumes in his hat rode a bobtailed chestnut horse, the other who was in a white uniform rode a black one.

These were the two Emperors followed by their suites.

Kutuzov, affecting the manners of an old soldier at the front, gave the command "Attention!" and rode up to the Emperors with a salute.
