Balzac, H. D. (n.d.). The Commission in Lunacy. Retrieved from

Excerpt: IN 1828, at about one o?clock one morning, two persons came out of a large house in the Rue du Faubourg Saint- Honore, near the Elysee-Bourbon. One was the famous doctor, Horace Bianchon; the other was one of the most elegant men in Paris, the Baron de Rastignac; they were friends of long standing. Each had sent away his carriage, and no cab was to be seen in the street; but the night was fine, and the pavement dry.
