"My dear sister," replied comte Jean, "heaven has nothing to do with such things." Alas! he was mistaken, and Providence only employed the present occasion as a means of causing us to be precipitated into the very abyss of ruin we had dug for others. On the following morning, Chamilly came to me to inquire whether it was my pleasure that the present scheme should be carried into execution.

And in fact, two or three days afterwards the Princesse de Lamballe, Madame de Tourzel, her daughter, the Queen's first woman, the first woman of the Dauphin and of Madame, M. de Chamilly, and M. de Hue were carried off during the night and transferred to La Force.

Chamilly continued to Chrysler: "I am not a little proud of the cheerfulness, the spirit, the respectability, the intelligence of my little people. "I have no doubt of it," remarked the visitor genially. "But I scarcely think you can be familiar with a group of startling projects lately cherished in our circles." "Plots against everybody," Quinet remarked.

He sent his first valet de chambre, M. de Chamilly, to the Abbe on the evening of the day he received the despatches from Vienna, to order him to come the next day to the Queen before her breakfast hour, to acquit himself discreetly of the afflicting commission with which he was charged, and to let his Majesty know the moment of his entering the Queen's chamber.

"Chamilly" began my father, walking up before the picture of one who was to me childhood's holy dream. He stopped for some moments, gazing up to her face with intense affection, and then turning to me, said in a broken voice "Never forget your mother." "No, sir," I replied, bending my head. In a moment he went on to the other portraits, and his manner altered to more of pride.

A tout preferons la patrie: Avant tout soyons Canadiens." Chamilly rose upon the rostrum when Grandmoulin went down. He opened quietly, after the exciting peroration of his opponent, and in a manner which lulled and calmed the assembly. "People of Dormillière, I have had a cause for wonder during Mr. Grandmoulin's discourse.

Voices, and then cries of alarm, and then lamentations of all the household startled him. Steps sounded coming up the stairs, and a man's sob, and then a gentle knock. "Open!" Chrysler responded. Pierre entered, the picture of woe, and broke down: "O monseigneur Monseigneur Chamilly is dead." They had found his boat and his body, washed ashore.

Accordingly his majesty wrote to madame de Rumas, who received the letter from the hands of her friend Chamilly with all pomp and state, talked first of her own virtue and honor, and afterwards of her dutiful respect for his majesty. She replied to the royal note in so prudent yet obliging a manner, that the king was enchanted.

Things were in this state when Marin divulged to us the intrigue conducted by Chamilly, and directed, though in a covert manner, by the marechal duc de Richelieu.

Chamilly aspires at governing his master, and Marin seconds him in his project." At length, roused to a sense of impending evil, by the constant reminding of the marechale, I summoned Marin to my presence.
