VOLUME III. 

CHAPTER XXX. 

It must be confessed, that flattery comes mighty
easily to one's mouth in the presence of royalty.
--Letters of Stephen Montague. 

'Tis he.--How came he thence--what doth he here?
--Lara. 

I had received for that evening (my last at Paris) an invitation from the
Duchesse de B--.  I knew that the party was to be small, and that very few
besides the royal family would compose it.  I had owed the honour of this
invitation to my intimacy with the _____s, the great friends of the
duchesse, and I promised myself some pleasure in the engagement.
