Yet De Grammont had something to atone for: he had been the adherent and companion in arms of Conde; he had followed that hero to Sens, to Nordlingen, to Fribourg, and had returned to his allegiance to the young king, Louis XIV., only because he wished to visit the court at Paris.

This system is imitated in the gothic cathedral at Sens.

Angular brackets, sculptured with knots, grotesque heads, and foliage, are affixed to the base of these derivative pillars. ...
