To leave n monument after him and

lavished upon the mansion a sum that

Into the btiBtlle. An examination ot
his papers rovealed that ho had been
shamefully squandering the nubile
unds. A letter from a lady found
among them thanked him for a gift
of lOo.OOO francs. .One man, a duke,
had received a present of 600,000
francs; another nobleman had re
