It’s not so much how you travel, but the way you arrive: There! There is a small glory-figure on the side of la chaise à porteurs; she will announce your approach with a trumpet! Still a bit too fancy for me. You see, this box used to belong to the daughter of Monsieur and Madame — yes, the daughter of Philippe of Orleans and the Princess Palatine, Elizabet-Charlotte d’Orleans, the grandmother of Marie-Antoinette. Do I find it effeminate? No…, it’s simply above my station; I’ve been considering another portable chair sold locally — just a modest dark- green box with red trim, out of which I could step with dignity and without fuss. The store is by the Marché de Notre Dame, and they would certainly deliver it to my place…. What would I do with it? I don’t have a garage.
