Récit par John Gustavus Lemaistre de son passage à Saint-Germain-en-Laye

« In returning to Paris, we took the road of St. Germain. The old castle still remains ; but its outward appearance was so gloomy, that we felt no inclination to visit the interiour. If the french monarch intended to pay a compliment to the pretender, in giving him a palace as nearly as possible resembling St. Jame’s, his choice was admirable. The view from the terrace is pretty, but by no means either as extensive, nor as rich, as I expected from its celebrity. »
