Le Journal de Paris de janvier 16xx

Recording the events of Paris and beyond during janvier 16xx

New Year, New Faces

As the new year dawned. several new faces have been gracing Paris with their presence. Several of these are newly arrived sons of members of the nobility including most notably that of Charles, the first son of Count Cyarcon. The new faces have applied to various different regiments with many various results, although three of the new intake have failed to convince their choice of regiment to accept their application.

Cause for confusion

Pity poor Flora Pernet! Her door was almost continuously occupied this month by two new suitors: Eddie Eagle and Frederick Richter. Although her diet has been much improved as the pair tried, in vain, to woo her heart; she did express annoyance at being unable to leave her property for much of the month for want of being able to dodge her serenaders. As a result of the confusion both gentlemen have cause to fight a duel next month.

Practice, practice, practice

Fencing School Engraving

Le Perche du Coudray's Fencing School

It seems that Le Perche du Coudray, the famous fencing master, is much in demand; with many members of the Paris scene deciding to improve their rapier skills this month. In fact a majority of the new faces partook in the exercise. Sadly Jack Antequil could only attend for the first week of training as his funds did not permit further training and one is left to wonder if Jack will be forced to join the frontier regiments in the Pyrénées in the very near future.

New drink unlikely to catch on

Although allegedly previously available in Marseille, a new drink has been made available as part of an attempt to introduce a new club to the city, Le Club Café. The new drink, of a suspiciously deep brown colour has a bitter taste and one wonders what the attraction of this drink over that of our native (and better tasting) wines.
