Several days ago I received from La Baronne de Ogle of England a missive requesting I meet her at Le Château d'Olhain in Le Nord-Pas de Calais. Mon frere Henri, having given me his express permission to do so, I rode out of Versailles with my personal guard and fonctionnaires et garçon d'honneur and began our journey. I arrived on the morrow, just as the sun rose, and was greeted warmly by La Château's staff.
I was escorted into salle de réception. instructing my guard to wait outside, I looked about at the lovely intricate tapestries and paintings adorning the walls. The furnishings were of upholstered burgundy and gold, as were the drapes. As I stood there admiring my surroundings, suddenly the door opens and in glides La Baronne. I stand there for a moment frozen. Taking in the breadth of her beauty; Her dark hair flowing beneath her hood and clear azure eyes sparkling delightfully.
"Mon cher Baronne?" I say and smile at her, my casual expression belying my leaping heart.
Anne Lumley 4th Baroness of Ogle

Anne had finally arrived in France. The journey -which she had been assured would be short- had been three days of choppy waters and horrible food. She had spent all her time in her cabin, rarely clambering upon the deck to see the 'spectacular view'.
The journey had left her with terrific bags under her dark eyes. Although she had been told that she must make an effort for the arrival, upon her husband's command. So she imprisoned herself in a comely blue gown, that looked pleasing but felt rather the opposite.
She stepped from the small rowing boat which had taken her, her luggage and maid to the shore. Her hem turned black as she waded through the shallow waves and finally she touched the sand. Stomach churning with lingering sea sickness and nerves she recited some rehearesed French phrases.
The castle where she had been allowed to stay was far grander than even her own home, the halls echoed as she walked through them. Then upon her second day in France, the greatest surprise was the news the The King himself had arrived.
Anne had hurridly changed into her favourite gown and scuttled to the hall to great him. She dipped a curtsey,"Votre Majesty,"she said, hoping her limited French would serve her well.
