I only know that she calls herself Henriette, that she must be a Frenchwoman, that she is as gentle as a turtledove, that she has evidently received a good education, and that she enjoys good health. She is witty and courageous, as we have both seen, I in Rome and you in Cesena at General Spada's table.

"I will tell you my reason as soon as you have handed me one hundred sequins, and you are going to do so at once. "Here are fifty which I brought for you; you cannot demand more from me."
