      What a night! But with all his talents, he frequently succumbed to the quest for pleasure and sex, often avoiding sustained work and established plans, and got himself into trouble when prudent action would have served him better. My eyes fell upon a gentleman walking by the side of Don Louis, who was looking at my friend very attentively. I will order a carriage for them, and they will take charge of your violoncello. The spike, carried to the new cell inside the armchair, was passed to the priest in a folio Bible carried under a heaping plate of pasta by the hoodwinked jailer. Folio Book composed of sheets that are folded once and printed on both sides, making two leaves and four pages.

      An attempt by his mother to secure him a position with Bishop Bernardo de Bernardis was rejected by Casanova after a very brief trial of conditions in the bishop's Calabrian see. She had read much, she had great tact, and her taste was naturally excellent; her Jacques Casanova de Seingalt book was sane, and, without being learned, she could argue like a mathematician, easily and without pretension, and in everything she had that natural grace which is so charming. Oh, what a delightful moment! When I told Paterno what had occurred, he fairly jumped for joy, but I knew what to think of it all, for 'cosi sono tutte', and in spite of all his entreaties, I declined to be present at his suppers, which were far from amusing, and gave the family of the actress an opportunity of laughing at the poor fool who was paying for them.

      However, although I was deeply grieved to find myself in such a disgraceful position, I did not think Jacques Casanova de Seingalt book had any right to complain. Henriette, however, was the only one to take notice of it, and she said to me, "I know, my darling, why you went into the garden" She knew me so well that she could easily guess the impression made on my heart by the evening's occurrence. Thirty years later inCasanova wrote Story of My Flight, which was very popular and was reprinted in many languages, and he repeated the tale a little later in his memoirs. I have before my eyes four hundred and sixty of his letters over which I weep and which I will burn. He said he was going after some dispatches you had left at Paris. He sold the rest of his belongings and secured another mission to Holland to distance himself from his troubles.
