.. When the balls which occur every Monday at Versailles [during Carnival] are taking place, Mme la dauphine shows every attention and kindness to those who attend. No one is forgotten, everyone is enchanted. The King has shown his pleasure in this by increasing the kindness and friendship which he shows [her]; he wants her to amuse herself, and arranges matters to this effect.
He has just ordered that there should be two comedies a week at Versailles, only because it was suggested to him that Mme la dauphine would be pleased at this.

—Ambassador Mercy to Maria Theresa, 23 January 1771
