Pierre-Paul d’Espiet de la Plagne sometimes used his troops to tend to his personal needs. My friend, a young soldier called La Fleur later used the knowledge he had gained working in this house. On a dark night in 1740 he scaled the fence, forced a window and robbed his captain of a few coins. It was not a planned theft – swift discovery and conviction saw the soldier branded and whipped through the streets.
