June 5: Here Comes the Sun King

These waters are teeming with carp. Not a very orderly school of fish -- a bit like our classes have been at moments... Alexandra and I are working on that, though. We are more of the Louis XIV type, and we need a little structure. We'll get it, you can be a golden Louis* on it. *Got to explain that maybe. One of Louis XIII and Richelieu's reforms was in finances. They replaced the old franc with a new gold coin: the Louis d'or which bore his portrait. Louis XIV would mint others with his own image. The Revolution would bring back the franc.
