August 11, 1779



We have arrived safely in Paris having enjoyed blessedly fine weather the entire journey. The Hotel de Sully is a very pleasant residence, and I hope to be happy here. I have not yet visited Versailles, but hope to in a day or two when I have settled in. If I were not so tired I should write more, but I had forgotten how hot Paris can be in August and find that the heat fatigues me greatly.

Olympe, Comtesse
