Just had to say I am really enjoying the opportunity to talk about my favourite historical character again! Reading is great but actually discussing him is even better.

Isn't it sweet! who would have thought of her sewing? it must be absolutely infused with love and fear if it really was made when he was arrested. I actually found it in 'Path of the Patriots' when I was planning the Cordelier bit of my Paris trip - apparently it's in the Bibliotheque Historique de la Ville de Paris.

I sort of hope it wasn't when he was actually arrested ... but maybe earlier. His suffering would apply before the arrest too, and I think the sewing maybe seems more likely to be something she'd do in the time of tension than the time of crisis. It's incredibly sweet....

Mmm, thinking about it , it would make sense if it came from the time when she was 'keeping close to the house' and only mixing with Louise and Annette, and when she stopped practising her music - oh dear x
