From the Memoirs of a Minister of France

Foreseeing that some who do not love me will be swift to allege that in

the preparation of these memoirs I have set down only such things as

redound to my credit, and have suppressed the many experiences not so

propitious which fall to the lot of the most sagacious while in power,

I take this opportunity of refuting that calumny.  For the truth stands

so far the other way that my respect for the King's person has led me

to omit many things creditable to me; and some, it may be, that place

me in a higher light than any I have set down.
