Excerpt from The Speeches of the Right Honourable Richard Lalor Sheil, M. P: With a Memoir, &C

I recollect upon one occasion having been witness to a very remarkable scene. Monsieur, as he was then called, the present King of France, waited one day, with a large retinue of French nobility, upon the Prince de Broglio. The whole body of the schoolboys was assembled to receive them. We were gathered in a circle at the bottom of a ?ight of stone stairs, that led from the principal room into the playground. The future king of fpance appeared with his cortege of illustrious exiles, at the glass folding-doors which were at the top of the stairs, and the moment he was seen, we all exclaimed, with a shrill shout of beardless loyalty, Vive 1e Roi!' Monsieur seemed greatly gratified by this Spectacle, and in a very gracious and conde scending manner went down amongst the little boys, who were at first awed a good deal by his presence, but were afterwards speedily familiarized to him by the natural benignity of Charles the Tenth. He asked the names of those who were about him, and when he heard them, and saw in the boys by whom he was encompassed, the descendants of some of the noblest families 0 France, he seemed in be spnsibly affected. One or two names.
