The Comte de Paris

Mark Grimsley has started a series of posts of his personal translations of passages from the Comte de Paris' unpublished diary  (1861-1862), a very good use for this blogging medium, I think. You can put your new Internet citational habits to work if you quote Mark's translations - and you'll want to.
Meanwhile Ted Savas comments that Russel Beatie has been using the same source for his AoP books ... but I wonder if he is referring by mistake to Louis-Phillippe's published history of the Peninsula Camapign.
