Even Máurine is falling for the Duchesse de Polignac's charms... ^_^

NOTES: Suzanne Curchod, AKA Madame Necker, was the wife of Jacques Necker (Louis XVI's director of finances), and she hosted a renowned salon in Paris. This type of gathering is sort of in-between a social party and a place to have intelligent discussions on topics like art, literature, or current events. Women often hosted and attended them, so it was a way for them to get an informal higher education since in France at the time, they were not yet allowed to attend university.
