In some cases the effect of losses at play is simply
stupefaction. Some players, at the end of the sitting, neither
know what they do nor what they say. M. de Crequi, afterwards
Duc de Lesdiguieres, leaving a gambling party with Henry IV.,
after losing a large sum, met M. de Guise in the court-yard of
the castle. 'My friend,' said he to the latter, 'where are the
quarters of the Guards now-a-days?' M. de Guise stepped back,
saying, 'Excuse me, sir, I don't belong to this country,' and
immediately went to the king, whom he greatly amused with the
anecdote.
