Повесть о Морфи. Автор: Евгений Загорянский. ПРОДОЛЖЕНИЕ.

 

Бросить мысль о матче с рыжим англичанином было равносильно тому, чтобы признать себя побежденным, равносильно тому, чтобы уехать из Европы, не сделав в ней самого главного.

Правда, Стаунтон обещал публично, при свидетелях, что он будет играть матч в ноябре. Но откуда же проскальзывали тогда в лондонской печати эти неожиданные «опровержения», «сомнения» и «возражения»?

Почему партии Пола печатались в «Иллюстрэйтед Лондон ньюс» в искаженном виде, с односторонними и недобросовестными примечаниями? Все это настораживало, и Пол решил действовать.

К тому же неугомонный Эдж зудел над ним, как комар, призывая «писать, писать и писать».

Сидя как-то вечером в кафе «Де ля Режанс», Пол удалился в меньшую комнату и потребовал бумагу, перо и чернила.

Эдж немедленно прилип к нему, они просидели вдвоем довольно долго.

Наутро за подписью мистера Пола Морфи, эсквайра, было отправлено два важных письма.

В первом, адресованном лично Стаунтону, давалась отповедь подписанным и не подписанным газетным сплетням. Копии этого письма были разосланы также в редакции газет «Иллюстрэйтед Лондой ньюс», «Белльс лайф ин Лондон», «Эра», «Филд» и «Сандей таймс».

Второе письмо адресовалось Т. Гэмптону, эсквайру, секретарю Сент-Джордского шахматного клуба.

«Сэр!

Разрешите почтительно известить Вас, что новоорлеанский шахматный клуб внес 500 (пятьсот) фунтов стерлингов в банкирскую контору гг. Гейвуд и К0 в Лондоне.

Эта сумма является моей долей ставки в предстоящем моем матче с м-ром Г. Стаунтоном.

Я сочту большой честью, если Сент-Джордж-клуб окажет мне любезность и назначит для меня двоих секундантов на этом соревновании из числа своих членов. Избранным клубом джентльменам я вверяю право вести предварительные переговоры от моего имени.

Разрешите просить Вас ознакомить членов клуба с этим моим посланием и удостоить меня скорого ответа.

Имею честь оставаться, сэр. Вашим покорным и послушным слугой

Пол Морфи

Париж, кафе «Де ля Режанс», 8 октября 1858 года»

Недели две ответа не было. Затем Стаунтон опубликовал в своей газете миролюбивое по форме письмо, суть которого сводилась к следующему.

Мистер Стаунтон давно не играл в шахматы, и его сегодняшняя форма сомнительна. Вызов м-ра Морфи был принят лишь условно, и литературные занятия м-ра Стаунтона принятию вызова отнюдь не благоприятствуют. Оторваться от работы сейчас для м-ра Стаунтона — значит, потерять тысячи и тысячи фунтов. М-р Стаунтон лишь дожидался конца матча Морфи — Гаррвитц, чтобы сообщить м-ру Морфи о том, что играть в ближайшее времени он не имеет возможности.

Впрочем, — говорилось в постскриптуме,— если м-ру Морфи доведется еще раз быть гостем м-ра Стаунтона, м-р Стаунтон с удовольствием сыграет с м-ром Морфи несколько легких, неофициальных партий «без каких-либо условий и церемоний».

Но этим мистер Стаунтон, шексниролог, не ограничился…
