Eaux-Chaudes : Arrivée d'une diligence

Louise Colet, a french poet,  mostly known for her affair with Gustave Flaubert, wrote mostly novels and travel books.  In  « Les derniers marquis »  she tells the season she spent in the Pyrenees at les Eaux-Chaudes and les Eaux-Bonnes and she describes in a very comic way the plots that happened between the people there.
