by every action to have excluded it from his heart. He places his whole 

confidence in his exterior air and appearance. He dresses for his 

mistress, dances for her, flutters constantly about her, helps her to 

lay on her rouge, and to place her patches. He attends her round the 

whole circle of amusements, chatters to her constantly, whistles and 

sings, and plays the fool with her. Whatever be his station, every thing 

gaudy and glittering within the sphere of it is called in to his 

assistance, particularly splendid carriages and tawdry liveries; but if, 

by the help of all these, he cannot make an impression on the fair one's 

heart, it costs him nothing but a few shrugs of his shoulders, two or 

three silly exclamations, and as many stanzas of some satirical song 

against her; and, as it is impossible for a Frenchman to live without an 

amour, he immediately betakes himself to another. 

 

There is hardly any such thing among people of fashion as courtship. 

Matters are generally so ordered by parents and guardians, that to a 

bride and bridegroom, the day of marriage is often the second time of

reckoned the greatest of misfortunes. In France it is little regarded. 

In the fashionable world, few people are greater strangers to, or more 

indifferent about each other, than husband and wife; and any appearance 

of fondness between them, or their being seen frequently together, would 

infallibly make them forfeit the reputation of the _ton_, and be laughed 

at by all polite company. On this account, nothing is more common than 

to be acquainted with a lady without knowing her husband, or visiting 

the husband without ever seeing his wife.

Of all the German females, the ladies of Saxony are the most amiable. 

Their persons are so superiorly charming and preferable in whatever can 

recommend them to be notice of mankind, that the German youth often 

visit Saxony in quest of _companions_ for life. Exclusive of their 

beauty and comeliness of appearance, they are brought up in a knowledge 

of all those arts, both useful and ornamental, which are so brilliant an 

addition to their native attractions. But what chiefly enhances their 

value, and gives it reality and duration, is a _sweetness_ of temper and 

festivity of disposition, that never fail to endear them on a very 

slight acquaintance. To crown all, they are generally patterns of 

conjugal tenderness and fidelity. 

 

As they are commonly careful to improve their minds by reading and
