Paris City of delights Paris drunk with Gold mad with the delirium of excesses Paris Vith no aim except Joy no method but extravagance held within her gilded Gates one Citadel of sensuality which remained Ever an object of mystery a source curiosity even in that dissipated and pleasure sated City. In the Palas Royal Back of the regally Beautiful gardens Back of the Noble rows of Trees beyond me Gates of Iron and the guards in uni form lived France s Regent in a City of libertines the Prince of libertines. In a City where there were More mis tresses than wives he it was who led the list of the licentious. La a City of unregulated vice and yet of exquisitely ordered taste he it was who accorded to himself daily pleasures which were admittedly beyond reproach. How unspeakably unbridled How delightfully wicked How temptingly in genious in their features the Little suppers of the Regent might were matters of curious interest to All of intimate knowledge to but few. It was one of these famous yet mysterious gatherings that the Regent of France had invited the master of that great and glittering Bubble House wee Ein dwelt so insecurely the affairs of France. John Law director general of the finances controller of the com Pany of the indies chosen by Philippe of Oil cans for a position not granted to the Crafty do Jois or to the shrewd d Argenson the last of thai i strange Trinity who made his Council.

Your said he your wish is for me command and certainly in this instance is peculiarly thus it came about that upon that evening there gathered at the Entrance of the palais Royal after an evening with Recouvreur at the theater fran cais some scattered groups of persons evidently possessing consequence. The chairs of others from More Distant locations threading their Way through the narrow dark and unlighted streets of the old crude capital of France brought their passengers in time to a scene far different from that of the gloomy streets. As one trod within the door of this Temple of the senses surely it must have seemed to him that he had come into another world which at first glance might have appeared to be one of an unrighteous ease an unprincipled enjoyment and an unmanly abandon ment to empowered vice. Yet Here it was that Philippe of Orleans ruler of France spent those hours most dear to him. If he gave thought to affairs of state during the Day it was but to him the Means to indulge fancies of his own. Alike shrewd and easy alike haughty and sensuous Here it was that Philippe held Bis real court. These Young gentlemen of France r Jese roues who have Corso to meet Philippe at his Little Dif Ferent from the same beings under the Rule of the grand Monargue. Their Coats Are no longer dark in Hue. Their Silks and velvets have blossomed out. Even As Paris has blossomed since the death of Louis the grand. Jabot of lace Are shown in full abundance and so far from the abolishment of jewels from their garb rubies sapphires Dia monds sparkle everywhere from the clasp of the High ruffles of the neck to the buckles of the red heeled shoes. Powder sparkles on the head coverings of these new gallants of France. They step daintily yet not in to this brilliantly lighted room these creatures gracious and resplendent sparkling painted ephemeral no a suited to the place and hour.

Though the Regent counted his sweethearts by scores he dismissed the one with the Sams air of interest As he welcomed the other and indeed ended by retaining All As his friends. Madame de tenpin in admiration there can be no said love there can be no Why then do you place As your chief guest this other this pouted Mademoiselle aisse As she seated herself turning upon her Host the radiance of her Large dark eyes.
