Excerpt from The Dramatic Works of Moliere, Vol. 2 of 3
The very heavens appeared to favour his Majesty's designs, since in a season in which it almost always rains, there was only a slight wind, which seemed to rise solely in order to show that the King's foresight and power were proof against the greatest inconveniences. High cloths, wooden buildings, run up almost in an instant, and a prodigious number of torches of white wax, to supply daily the place of above four thousand wax Can dles, resisted the wind, which everywhere else would have rendered these diversions almost impracticable.
