Excerpt

The following is a modern English version of a curious French memoir, or fragment of autobiography, apparently written about the year 1620 by Anne Vicomte de Caylus, and brought to this country -- if, in fact, the original ever existed in England -- by one of his descendants after the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes. This Anne, we learn from other sources, was a principal figure at the Court of Henry IV., and therefore, in August 1572, when the adventures here related took place, he and his two younger brothers, Marie and Croisette, who shared with him the honour and the danger, must have been little more than boys. From the tone of his narrative, it appears that, in reviving old recollections, the veteran renewed his youth also, and though his story throws no fresh light upon the history of the time, it seems to possess some human interest.
