Récit par Hester Lynch Thrale de son passage à Saint-Germain-en-Laye

« I should have mentioned seeing the Castle of St Germain in the Morning as the French it is plain thunk highly of it, and praise the Prospect from the Garden Terras as we praise Windsor. The manifest Inferiority charmed me, and to see the Man shewing off a Royal Pleasure Ground not twice as big as our own Kitchen Garden, with little trimmed Hedges and small Shrubberies which he called a Forest, [p. 90] was comical beyond Expression. »
