49. 32.ii - Extract from the Diary of François-Thomas de la Rouille [Translated from French]
...He was large man, perhaps a Dane. A head full of hair so blonde it could have been silver and eyes so blue they could drops from the Caribbean ocean. But he was heavy-set, with a firm stubbled jaw. Why this man would be interested in my shop, I did not know, but he purchased it from me - so I assumed he was a wealthy merchant. To complete the transaction, I asked for his name and he said his name was “Burke de la Rouge.” He told me he was new to Versailles, and wanted to start up a bakery.
This “Burke de la Rouge” hardly seemed the baking type.
Note: At this point in time, Versailles - though only miles away from French Paris - was occupied by British troops. Anglo-French peace had been signed, which had allowed some French land to British occupation.
