Note 079
From Chapter 61 of the Decline & Fall

The singular anecdote to which I allude is related in the Recueil des Pieces interessantes et peu connues (Maestricht, 1786, in 4 vols. 12mo.); and the unknown editor quotes his author, who had received it from Helene de Courtenay, marquise de Beaufremont.
