Quelles odeurs, quelles saveurs convoquent ces lectures par exemple? Et quels effets tactiles ou haptiques? Di Leo Jeffrey R. France Diplomatie. Evelyne Sznycer, Bruxelles, P. Mardaga, Meschonnic Henri , Critique du rythme. Anthropologie historique du langage , Lagrasse, Verdier, Postmodern Essays , op. The post horses are wretched and halfstarved: the private ones seem generally good. The hackney carriages are of two kinds; the fiacre, which resembles the English hackney coach and the cabriolet, which is a clumsy gig with a cover.
This last, as it is less expensive than the former, having but one horse, and the vehicle itself being less costly, is very convenient for a single person. The drivers pay every day a fixed sum to the owners of the vehicle; all the surplus belongs to themselves. Say has shewn me a plan of the chamber of deputies, in which is pointed out the place habitually occupied by each member. The liberals are to the left, the ultras to the right, the ministerialists in the middle, and the trimmers and waverers in the intermediate spaces. The charter granted by Louis on his restoration 35 is daily violated; at present a question is on the carpet with respect to the electoral suffrage.
We passed through Longjumeau, leaving Arcueil to the left, and in the evening arrived at Etampes, a pretty town, not very large, population 7, inhabitants. The country south of Paris is much more inclosed than in the north.
As far as Orleans, the road is paved. This diligence, unlike the former, has four wheels. We supped at Etampes, and travelled all night. Here I saw the statue of Joan of Arques. We had a dejeuner, that is to say, a dinner, at Noan, 39 a little place beyond Orleans. At Massay we got out for the night, and had an excellent supper, that is, another dinner still more sumptuous than the first, and excellent beds, very cheap.
Orleans, chef lieu of the Loiret, is one of the largest towns in France; it is well built, and situate on the right bank of the Loire.

It is a manufacturing town, and contains 42, inhabitants. On leaving Orleans we pass over a very pretty bridge on the Loire. A troublesome fat marchand de boeuf, who was perpetually smoking tobacco, mounted the diligence here, and as he sat in the cabriolet. I was not a little incommoded by his smoking. We passed the Saudre near Salbris, and arrived at Vierzon. This town situate on the Cher, a considerable river, which, like those I have mentioned, throws itself into the Loire, is Edition: current; Page: [ 16 ] chiefly remarkable for the great number of islands and bridges which we are obliged to cross in passing through it.
We proceeded to Massay, a little village where we got out for the night.
The company inside the diligence was excellent, particularly M. Longayrou, a very agreeable young gentleman who speaks English very passably. There were besides four gentlemen, one of them with his daughter. We supped at Massay, and had excellent beds. We dined at a little place called Beaumondai. The country has nothing remarkable in these parts; it is said to be among the most unpleasant in France.
We travelled all night. The population is 8, inhabitants. The town did not appear to me very pretty; I saw it however to little advantage, the morning being rainy. Passed through an uninteresting country, full of woods and ponds, to Argenton on the Creuse.

We dined at a place called Beaumondai, but I cannot find this place in the Itineraire. We passed the Creuse, and travelled all night, crossing the river Gartempe at Bessines. We supped at Uzerches, and travelled all night. Limoges is a very dirty town, and by no means pretty; it is very large, and contains no fewer than 21, inhabitants. I breakfasted here with a very good-natured gentleman from the interior of the diligence. The marchand de boeuf descended here for good and all, but the two places did not remain long vacant, being filled immediately by a lady, with a dirty fille, a boy, and a dog; the fille had an eruption on her face, which made my place none of the pleasantest, particularly on account of the smell.

Passed through a country extremely mountainous, producing scarcely any thing except chestnuts. On account of the hilliness, the road takes many windings, so much so that the length is at least tripled, and I am firmly of opinion that Richard Doane was right when he said that the distance from Paris to Toulouse is miles.
This part of France is not very populous. I walked once during the day two leagues and a half before the diligence. Late in the evening we arrived at Uzerche, a town situate on a rock close to the Edition: current; Page: [ 17 ] river Vezere, which we crossed. Here we supped; and after supper we mounted an extremely steep hill. The country here is very pleasant. At Cresansac, a young attorney leaving the diligence, I took my place in the interior, as it was my right, because I had the first place in the cabriolet.
But I found this lady claimed the place, and the conducteur, who took her part, wanted to force me to quit my seat in the inside, but without effect, as I maintained my right and was supported by the gentlemen in the coach. They at last referred the business to the maire, who decided it in my favour, the young avocat pleading my cause.
The company in the diligence was very pleasant, particularly M. Longayrou, an agreeable young man, who speaks English by no means badly. The country from Limoges to Cahors produces scarcely any thing but chestnuts; it is so mountainous that the road is forced to turn and wind so much to avoid the hills, that its length, I think, is at least tripled. After passing Souillac, the diligence was ferried over the river Dordogne and proceeded to Peyrac, where we slept. I breakfasted here with the same gentleman with whom I had breakfasted at Limoges: walked on to a considerable distance through a very mountainous and picturesque country.
We went on to the beautiful village of Noailles, where I got out again, and walked to Reigeade-de-Nepouls, situate on a hill. We arrived soon after at Cressansac, a little village on another hill. Here a young avocat left the diligence, upon which, having the first place in the cabriolet, I availed myself of my right to take the vacant place in the interior. This, however, I soon perceived to be disputed by the lady in the cabriolet, whose part was taken by the conducteur of the diligence. He endeavoured to force me to descend but ineffectually, as I maintained my right, and was supported by all the gentlemen in the coach; at last the case was referred to the maire, who decided the question in my favour, the avocat pleading my cause.
Accordingly I remained in the coach. I afterwards found that the lady wanted the place for the fille, on account of her eruption; had I known this I should have yielded. We arrived soon after, having made a very steep descent, at Souillac, near the banks of the great river Dordogne.

This town is extremely pretty; it is situate in the valley of the Dordogne between two great mountains. On leaving Souillac, we were ferried over the river in a large ferryboat, there being no bridge, though they are now building one.
We then mounted the longest hill I have ever yet known, we were three quarters of an hour in mounting; after passing through as mountainous a country as before we arrived at Peyrac, where we dined and slept. June 1. Cahors is a very pretty place. We crossed the river Lot; the country here becomes very fertile and pleasant: tobacco is grown near Cahors. She gave me a packet for Sir S. I arrived at Pompignan about 2 in the morning w[here M. Do not write till you hear from me again, because we leave Pompignan in a few day[s].
I have no room to write more. I remain. The morning was very fine. We arrived at Cahors, chef lieu of the Lot, celebrated for its wines; it is a very large town, containing 11, inhabitants; it has a pretty promenade, and is on the whole a very pretty town. Near it are many Roman antiquities.
