Not illustrated.1856 Excerpt: ... CHAPTER III. MADAME DE WARENS. There is no monument or inscription of any kind, as I have said, to mark the spot where Madame de Warens was buried: nor indeed was it to be expected, considering the circumstances under which she died, that there should be. At that time Rousseau--having incurred persecution in France and Switzerland, in consequence of the publication of his "Emile"--was flying with hurried foot from one place to another in search of refuge. He arrived at Motiers-Travers in the territory of Neufchatel on the 10th July, 1762. On the 29th, Madame de Warens, worn out by suffering and broken-spirited by poverty, breathed her last in one of the humblest faubourgs of Chambery. The event is thus recorded in the registers of the church of Lemenc by the hand of Monsieur Gaime, most probably the same priest whom Rousseau knew at Turin, and who was one of the originals of the Savoyard Vicar: --Extract from the Mortuary Registers of the Parish of Saint Peter of Lemenc. "July 30, 1762, was buried in the cemetery of Lemenc, Dame Louise Francoise Eleonore de la Tour, widow of the Lord Baron de Warcns, born at Vevey, in the canton of Berne, in Switzerland. She died yesterday at ten o'clock of the morning like a good Christian, after having received the last sacraments. Age, sixty-three years. She had abjured the Protestant religion about thirty-six years previously, and had since lived in ours. She closed her career in the faubourg of Nesin, where she had resided in the house of Mr. Crepine. She had previously resided at the Reclus during about four years, in the house of the Marquis d'Alinge. Since her abjuration she had passed the remainder of her life in this city. (Signed) "Gaime, cure of Lemenc." We are but imperfectly initiated into the state of Rousseau...
