"The regent made an edit against those who would keep silver tableware and promised half of the sum to the delator. A magistrate went to him and said to him: "I am asking you for half of the crockery of a man whom I am going to denounce to you and who has a hundred thousand francs. I grant you this," said the Regent scornfully, "and who is this man? It is I who took the other who saved half of his silverware by this address.
