    Excerpt from The Life of Voltaire

    IN 1694, when Louis XIV. Was at the height of that military glory which at once dazzled and ruined France, there was born in Paris on November 21 a little, puny, weak, sickly son.

    The house into which the infant was born was the ordinary house Of a thoroughly comfortable well-to-do bourgeois of the time and place. A notary was M. Arouet pere. His father had been a prosperous linen-draper and Arouet the son, shrewd and thrifty in affairs, had bought, after the custom Of his time and his profession, first one post and then another, until he was a man of some wealth and, for his class, Of some position. Among his clients he could number the Dukes Of Sully and Of Richelieu, memoir-writing saint-simon, the poet Boileau, and the immortal Ninon de l'enclos. He had a country house at Chatenay, five miles from Paris. Plenty of sound common-sense, liberal, practical, hospitable; just enough taste for literature to enjoy a doze, over a book in the evening when his day's labour was done eminently respected and respectable decently acquiescing in. The national religion as such, and with no particular faith in anything but hard work and monetary prudence not a little hasty in temper and deadly obstinate - such was Maitre Arouet.
