Mme. de Genlis states that one evening while the States-General were sitting, the Duc d鈥橭rl茅ans, who was in her salon, declared that they would be of no use and do nothing; not even suppress the lettres de cachet. Mme. de Genlis and the Duc de Lauzun were of a different opinion, and they bet each other fifty louis on the subject. The bet was put into writing and Mme. de Genlis showed it to more than fifty people of her acquaintance, all of whom declared a Revolution to be impossible. The Abb茅 Cesutti, one of the free-thinking school, was editor of a paper called La feuille villageoise, intended for the people. He asked Mme. de Genlis to write for it, and she sent some papers called 鈥淭he Letters of Marie-Anne,鈥 in which she introduced doctrines and principles of religion. Soon after the Abb茅 came and asked her in future only to speak of morality and never to mention religion. Knowing what that meant she declined to write any more for that paper.

Your Comments

The Regent Orl茅ans was not, like the Princes of [8] Cond茅, Conti, Charolois, and others of the blood royal, cruel, haughty, or vindictive; on the contrary, he was good-natured, easy, and indulgent; but he was dissipated, extravagant, and licentious to such a degree that he himself, the court, and his family were the scandal of Europe. The same frenzied pursuit of enjoyment, the same lavish, sensual, reckless, luxurious life, characterised the whole of the reign of Louis XV.
