« At Saint Germain en Laye we stopped to take a view of the palace. It is a gloomy structure, built of a dark-coloured brick, and has more the apperance of a prison than a palace. It was the retreat of the fugitive James II of England ; and here, worn with vexation and grief, he expired. It was originally designed by its founder, Francis I, as a hunting seat for the kings of France, when they enjoyed the diversion of the chase in the adjoining forest of Laye. It has been much neglected of late, however, and has greatly suffered from the Prussian soldiers, by whom it was occupied as barracks during the late war. From the terrace is a very extensive prospect, and Paris is distinctly seen in the distance. The town of St. Germain is chiefly built of stone – the streets are wide, the houses, generally, are on a grand scale, and there is an air of magnificence about the whole. The approach to it, by a spacious avenue through the forest, is extremely fine. In this forest Napoleon took great delight, and there he used frequently to hunt. »
