But he made too many strange remarks, both familiar and distant; he knew too well the secrets of the commonplace not to have been from another, yet nearby, world.

The few lepers scattered in the 1,200 still-existing houses were collected at Saint-Mesmin near Orleans. These decrees were first applied in Paris, where the Parlement transferred the revenue in question to the establishments of the Hopital General; this example was imitated by the provincial authorities; Toulouse transferred the effects of its lazar houses to the Hopital des Incurables (1696); those of Beaulieu in Normandy went to the Hotel-Dieu in Caen; those of Voley were assigned to the Hopital de Sainte-Foy.
