A Lady of quality once appearing before Louis,
to solicit some favour of him, in a dress too
juvenile for her years, the good Monarch said to her:
"Madam, I will take care of your suit,
if you will take care of your situation. Your beauty
once made a great noise in this kingdom, but
it is passed like a flower in the field. It is in
vain that you endeavour to bring it back again;
you had much better attend to the beat¿y of the
mind, which never fades."
