Author's note in vol. 3, pp. 373–74 states: 'The Author has endeavoured, in this work, carefully to avoid violating any important historic fact. She has founded her little tale on the circumstance of John Sobieski, after ascending the throne of Poland, having so far acknowledged a son of the Marchioness de Briscacier to be his, as to exert his influence with Louis XIV, to confer on that son the title of Duke'. Her note also calls the novel 'this first essay of her pen'.
