The region is one better suited for the employment of cavalry and artillery than for that of foot-soldiers. The Chartres country is better watered than Beaude. Westward, in both of the districts of Perche, going either towards Mortagne or towards Nogent-le-Rotrou, the country is more hilly and more wooded; and hedges, ditches, and dingle paths abound there.

But they can run the seven cardinal virtues, and the seven other virtues, off by rote. When she had finished, to my astonishment, she said to me, exactly this: "It is Nature that is God, is it not so?" An expression almost symbolical of the ignorance and credulity of the Romans is their constant axiom, Chi lo sa? The beginning of wisdom is not to fear God, but to say Perche?

"Ora a tempo perche vene andata," exclaimed Her Highness at the sound, having ordered a person to call with this signal to see me out of the palace to the Rue Nicaise, where my carriage was in waiting to conduct me home. It is not possible for me to describe the gracious condescension of the Queen and the Princesse Elizabeth, in expressing their sentiments for the accidental discovery I had made.

The forests in Le Perche are reckoned the most extensive in France, and every where abound with vast quantities of game. I was received on alighting from my horse by a M. Boderie, a good humoured hospitable man, who, with his family, are the only inhabitants of this lonesome spot.

"Perhaps Tristan gave him a safe-conduct too, and the fool got drunk. And if we have good, warm blood in us we all get drunk sooner or later. Yes, and please God my time will come, but may the Saints send me far from Valmy! You think I'm talking nonsense, Uncle; but Monsieur de Perche always let me talk. He said it was better to let blow at the bung than burst the cask."
