Fragment from the volume:
August 21, 1648, turned out to be bright and fresh. The peace that overwhelmed the whole yard in the last days, even more than the news of the new rebellions of the Parisian people, disappeared as a wonder. The cool and pleasant air attracted all the inhabitants of Fontainebleau Castle to the gardens and parks around this wonderful work of French Renaissance architecture. It was just past ten o’clock when a boy of ten years old came out through the central door of the castle, opened by two lacquers. It was of medium size, even short, but the dignity and grace with which he walked made the people around him look at him carefully. There was no emotion on the white face. He was dressed in a dark blue velvet suit, richly embellished with gold. He wore a hat with a feather too large for him, and this probably bothered him, without, however, sketching a gesture of displeasure.
