Gilles Menage : Menagiana

'[Mr Pepys] is admirably described by the same Words with which Menage describes Mr de Costar; C'est (dit il), le Galant le plus Pedant, et le Pedant le plus galant qu'on puisse voir. His verses on Mrs Greville and Mrs Crewe I think are very [italics] smart [end italics] ones, and have a Turn remarkably elegant at the End'. [she gives the verses]

'I was reading today where Menage tells a story of a notable fellow in his native town Angers, who was such a bustler that they called him sport Monsieur Tracas.'
