Madame la Marechale de Mirepoix had also been in England, where, she declared, her hair began to turn grey from drinking too much tea. Besides pretty songs, the Duc de Nivernois translated a book of Milton's "Paradise Lost" and Pope's "Essay on Man" into French, his version of the latter beginning
" Reveille toi, 14ylord, laisse aux rois ces chimeres
De leur petit orgueil jouissances si cheres."
He also wrote Imaginary Conversations between Cicero and Fontenelle, Alcibiades, and the Duc de Guise, the younger Pliny, and Mme. de Sevigne, Pericles and Mazarin, &c. M. Lucien Perey has published two interesting volumes on the Duc de Nivernois and his times.
