I afterwards repeated to the minister of Deux Ponts what I had previously stated in the garden to M. de Cosse, and had the satisfaction of hearing madam d'Aiguillon approve of my sentiments.
When I retired to my apartment I was followed by my niece.
"How happy are you, dear aunt," said she, 'to preserve such friends in your present troubles."
"I owe them," replied I, "to my simplicity and candor."
"Will you not retire to Germany?"
"Yet it would be better to allow the first burst of displeasure on the part of the dauphiness to pass over."
"Who gave you this counsel, my dear niece? I am quite sure it does not originate in yourself."
"I had promised not to tell," answered she; "but if you insist upon it, I must confess, that I was persuaded by the prince de Conde and M. de Soubise to urge you to follow it."
