Philippe de Courcillon, Marquis de Dangeau


June 12th. — The Pope has caused great rejoicings to be made for the conversion of the heretics of France. He held a consistory expressly, in which he has bestowed great praises upon the King. He also attended divine service, at which Te Deum was sung. Public illuminations followed for three successive days.

23d. — There has been a smart skirmish between the officers of the King’s regiment, and the soldiers of the Guards. Fifteen soldiers were either killed or wounded.
