Memoirs of
Madame du Hausset
Waiting-Woman of Madame de Pompadour
INTRODUCTION
I CTis related that M. Sénac de Meilhan, a friend
of the Marquis de Marigny, brother of Madame
de Pompadour, found him one day burning
papers. The Marquis picked up a large packet, and
was about to throw it into the fire.
he said.
diary is all twaddle.
«It is the diary of my sifter's waiting-woman,"
She was a very worthy creature ; but her
To the fire with it !"
He topped.
" Do you not think," he continued, " that I am
like the curé and the barber in Don Quixote, when they
burnt the romances of chivalry ?"
"I will ask you to spare this one," said Sénac de
Meilhan."I like anecdotes, and I shall no doubt
ind something to interest me."
In the writing of thás Introduftion, I have relied mainly on M.
Pierre de Nolhac's Luis XV a Madame de Pompadour, supplemented
by the Madame de Pompadeur of Mr. H. Noel Williams,
Abel-Frangois Poisson, a capable man. He became Marquis
de Marigay, and occupied the important poft of Direor General of
the King' Buildings (or of the Ofice of Works "), in saccession to
Le Normant de Tournebem. His sifter would have made him a duke ;
but his modesty forbade this.
