Excerpt from Universal Classics Library: Appleton Prentiss Clark Griffin Library of Congress, Editorial Director; Illustrated With Photogravures on Japan Vellum, Etchings Hand Painted India-Plate Reproductions, and Full Page Portraits of Authors
It was in this period that she sought solace in recollections of the past and with zeal devoted herself to literature. In this manner her memoirs came to be written. She was the writer also of articles and romances that were widely read. She died in Paris, June 7, 1838. At once, as her biographer describes her, an artist and a fine lady, a woman of letters and of the drawing room, generous to a fault with her money and her intelligence, as cheerful in poverty as in wealth, as much admired by Parisian society in the most humble apartment as in her splendid mansion in the Champs Elysees, a noble nature.
