Universal Classics Library free pdf Excerpt from Universal Classics Library: Appleton Prentiss Clark Griffin Library of Congress, Editorial Director- Illustrated With Photogravures on Japan Vellum, Etchings Hand Painted India-Plate Reproductions, and Full Page Portraits of Authors Laure Permon Junot, the Duchess of Abrantes was born November 6, 1784, at Montpellier, a year after the signing by ourselves and England of the Definitive Treaty of Peace. She came of a Corsican family descended, says tradition, from the line of Comnenus, the Eastern Emperors. Madame de Permon, her mother, was an intimate friend of Madame Laetitia Bonaparte. The two families were neighbors at Ajaccio, the children in consequence playmates. Madame Junot's acquaintance with Napoleon dates then from his boyhood. In these memoirs, as she says, she conducts him, as it were, by the hand almost from the cradle to mature age through the world, which rang with his marvelous deeds to the end of it all - Waterloo. She draws him in many moods and characters - the man in if not of peace as well as the man of blood and conscript youths. She was on terms of close intimacy with Josephine and spent many days at Malmaison. A participant in the excitements and social life of the French Capital and acquainted with the celebrities of the day her memoirs abound in anecdote- and the social recollections from her own life are related in a charming and vivacious style throughout. Doubtless, as has been said, they bear errors of composition, and, at times, are historically inexact, some of the recollections being perhaps more fictitious than real, romance rather than history. But even granting this these memoirs of a remarkable and brilliant woman are full of life and charm and present a truthful picture in the main of illustrious and conspicuous phases of a very wonderful period of the history of France and of the world. It was after the French Revolution that the Permon family came to Paris, sent there, it is said, by the father to secure good matches for his daughters.
