"At least," objected Gourville, "there is still uncertainty. You are about to appear at the States; you are about to show what sort of man you are; your eloquence and your genius for business are the buckler and sword that will serve for defence, if not for victory.
The Bretons do not know you; and when they shall know you your cause is won. let M. Colbert look to it well, for his lighter is as much exposed as yours to being upset. Both go quickly, his faster than yours, it is true; we shall see which will be wrecked first.

He wished to fall from such a height that his fall should crush some one of his MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS. Colbert was there,- so much the worse for Colbert. The superintendent, therefore, coming up to him, replied with that arrogant winking of the eyes peculiar to him "What. is that you, M. Colbert?" "To offer you my respects, Monseigneur," said the latter.
"Were you MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS that lighter?" pointing to the one with twelve rowers. "Yes, Monseigneur. " "Of twelve rowers?" said Fouquet; "what luxury, M. Colbert.
