Post Saint Germain and MA
I read this on internet:

'Saint-Germain foretold the outbreak of the French Revolution to Marie Antoinette who purportedly wrote in her diary that she regretted that she did not heed his advice.' (http://www.cassiopaea.org/cass/grail_5d.htm)

In several internet web pages you can find references to this fact and even in 'Souvenirs de Marie Antoinette' by Comtesse d'Adhemar. Has anyone read about this? Are these 'memories' to be trusted?

I read these memoirs. Unless they are apocryphal, they contain interesting information, especially about the court habits and courtiers, and the ladies of the queen.

Thanks! In case I read them, what sort of info may I consider to be wrong? May I trust in info about MA given there?

I noticed most of the stories are the same as those told by Madame Campan. On the other hand, there are some strange stories about a doomed letter or something... this must be taken with a pitch of salt, I guess ! Frankly, I learned nothing new in reading this book...
