Post La Princesse de Tarente
Reading an article on Lady Charlotte Atkyns, an English friend of Marie Antoinette who tried to save her at the Conciergerie, I noticed this quote from the mémoirs of the Princess of Tarente, written on the 15th October 1797, whilst in exile in Richmond, England (a stone's throw from my home):

"Tomorrow I shall be alone all day. I won't see my brother-in-law or anyone else. My door will be fast shut. I shall return to you..."

No comment needed...
