Malicorne then left Blois as we have said and went to find his friend Manicamp then in temporary retreat in the city of Orleans. It was just at the moment when that young nobleman was employed in selling the last decent clothing he had left. He had a fortnight before extorted from the Comte de Guiche a hundred pistoles all he had to assist in equipping him properly to go and meet Madame on her arrival at Le Havre. He had drawn from Malicorne three days before fifty pistoles the price of the _brevet_ obtained for Montalais. He had then no expectation of anything else having exhausted all his resources with the exception of selling a handsome suit of cloth and satin embroidered and laced with gold which had been the admiration of the court. But to be able to sell this suit the last he had left - as we have been forced to confess to the reader - Manicamp had been obliged to take to his bed. No more fire no more pocket-money no more walking-money nothing but sleep to take the place of repasts companies and balls. It has been said - He who sleeps dines but it has never been affirmed - He who sleeps plays - or He who sleeps dances. Manicamp reduced to this extremity of neither playing nor dancing for a week at least was consequently very sad he was expecting a usurer and saw Malicorne enter. A cry of distress escaped him. Eh what said he in a tone which nothing can describe is that you again dear friend Humph you are very polite said Malicorne. Ay but look you I was expecting money and instead of money I see _you_. And suppose I brought you some money Oh that would be quite another thing. You are very welcome my dear friend And he held out his hand not for the hand of Malicorne but for the purse. Malicorne pretended to be mistaken and gave him his hand. And the money said Manicamp. My dear friend if you wish to have it earn it. What must be done for it Earn it _parbleu _ And after what fashion Oh that is .
