Post Charles Henri Sanson
Hi everyone. It's been a long time.
Has anyone read the Memoirs of the Sanson? Written by his grandson, and contains the diary of Charles Henri and of his son Henri Sanson. I didn't know that it existed until today, and I've been reading all day. There is such great information. I'm linking it here, if anyone is interested.

.... By the way. Am going to Paris tomorrow and have planned to spend two of the days at Versailles. The rest of the days I will walk of what's left of revolutionary Paris. Any suggestions other than the usual?

Lamballe

Bonjour, Lamballe! Thank you so much for providing a link to this book. I had not heard of it either, and I am so glad you posted about it.

Have a wonderful time in Paris!
