Marie Antoinette

: Friends.

On the elevation of this princess to the throne after
the death of Louis XV., an officer of the body-guard, who had given her

offence on some former occasion, expressed his intention of resigning his

commission; but the queen forbade him. "Remain," said she, "forget the past

as I forgive it. Far be it from the Queen of France to revenge the injuries

of the Dauphiness."
