Le Brun was present was the Mariage de Figaro, played by the actors of the Com茅die Fran?aise; but, as she observes in one of her letters, Beaumarchais  must have intolerably tormented M. de Vaudreuil to induce him to allow the production of a piece so improper in every respect.

Mr. Thomas Jefferson Randolph in the Virginia legislature used the following language (Liberty Bell, p. 20): The moon at night shed an intense light, warm and golden.
