Reading Experience:

'We read the French papers where there was a letter of a soldier written to the King of France which is of the grossest insolence and horrifies one. We hear that Jourdain (the famous brigand) and his companions have been set free for their infinte merits and their patriotism. This monster is unworthy even to sully his life with new crimes. He has been led in triomph [sic] to Arles.'
