Since the first published text 3 contains names like " Russians " and " Crimea," Saint Martin in his edition 4 denied that it was written by Moses, and assigned its origin to the 10th century.
Elie DECAZES, Duc (1780-1860), French statesman, was born at Saint Martin de Laye in the Gironde.
He was the coachman of the fiacre which drove the royal family from the Carrousel to the Porte Saint-Martin.
In April 1644 he attacked the Portuguese island of Saint Martin and was wounded; he had to return to Holland, and there one of his legs was amputated.
Finally chance gave him an opportunity to show his talents, and at the Porte Saint Martin he became the popular interpreter of romantic drama of the Alexandre Dumas type.
