Charles Armand Tuffin de la Rouërie: After my romance with actress Marie-Anne Fleury failed, I rode here for refuge, partially from my own thoughts of suicide. I stayed from approximately 1774 - 1776, and for these two years, intended to become a monk, and trained to do so. Eventually, however, I realized that a brazen, fiery young man like myself was not meant for such a life, and I returned to Paris.
