account of the occurrences at the death of

at Paris, and transmitted to tbe Empress
Catharine II. Tbe writer says tbat knowiog

Voltaire, bo had tbe account prepared by a
person who was well acquainted with the
details. This person from internal evidence,
appears te have been tbe physician in at

three columns of tho Debats newspaper.

solation, nnd repulsed the clergyman, ex
claiming, '-Let medio in peace." His lost
words wero, "Take care of Maria." mean

after being embalmed, was carried to the
