No explicit answer is provided. Possibly the doctor was hoping for Napoleon/Eugene to be captured; Lambert might have wanted revenge because he was jealous of Pumpkin. Another interpretation is that Lambert's intention was less malicious and he was simply - if somewhat spitefully - showing him how his life as the Emperor was over: if "Eugene" persisted in his claims, he would end up as just another madman claiming to be Bonaparte.

Napoleon died in 1821 on Saint Helena. There have been different theories concerning his death, ranging from stomach cancer to arsenic poisoning.
