No nation has a more emphatic shrug. No nation is the object of so much romanticism yet so unromantic itself. No nation internalizes as completely the notion that in the end we are all dead. Now, it is true that France lives with high unemployment in a depressed euro zone; that it is more vassal than partner to Germany these days; that it is chronically divided between a world-class private sector and a vast state sector of grumpy functionaries; that its universalist illusions have faded as its power diminishes; and that its welfare state is unaffordable.
Malaise and ennui are to France what can-do is to America: A badge of honor. My daughter Jessica married into a French family, many of whom live in that region of strange, blustery beauty, the Camargue. I went to see Trazic recently for a long lunch. He lives alone, his wife 50 miles away: simpler like that.

The stench is staggering, the secret of eating it to take very little. Even malaise? As in many other countries in Europe, in France the population coverage of the surveillance system of HLIs is low. In this study, a model-assisted approach is developed to estimate the incidence rates of HLIs in adults treated in emergency departments EDs in metropolitan France between and METHODS: using a sample of the hospitals participating in the French ED-based surveillance system, a generalized linear mixed model was applied, which describes the relationship between the numbers of ED visits for HLIs and the sex and age of the patients on the basis of the number of injury-related stays recorded by the DT2 was associated with region of birth in women after adjusting for age, body mass index and income or occupation, but not after adjusting for education Two logistic regression models were used to analyze factors related to improvement in dependence score and discharge home.
Odds ratios ORs were also calculated. Of these, 19 went to GRC As in many other countries, the incidence of diabetes is increasing in France, where it has virtually doubled over the past twenty years, rising from 8 cases per , children in to an estimated 15 cases per , in In individuals under the age of 20 years, between and , the mean annual increase in the prevalence of treated diabetes varied between 2.
Disgust at what was being done to Protestants abroad was paralleled by fears about what might be done by the Catholic James II in England.
Anti-Popery underlay English preparedness to believe the lies of Titus Oates, the length and bitterness of the Exclusion Crisis, and eventually James' loss of his throne. It, more than anything else, ensured that the normal hostility to foreigners would be suspended in the case of the Huguenots.
When, three years before James' accession, Samuel Bolde warned his readers in a printed sermon that they did not know how soon they might share the refugee condition, he was hitting a vital nerve. The appearance of so many people fleeing government action abroad had no previous parallels in English history. The Jews who had come to medieval England had been comparatively few in number, although their isolation from their Christian English hosts accentuated their presence.
Dutch and Walloon Calvinists arrived in force in Elizabethan England — there were over 15, foreign Protestants in the country in the s, the majority Dutch and almost all of the remainder Walloon and Huguenot — but few needed to come once the independence of the United Provinces was secured.
Most of the refugees from the German Palatinate in were immediately resettled in Ireland and America. Irish and Scottish migrants, who chose to come for their individual economic benefit, belong to a different category. Not until the nineteenth century can any other swell of refugees be said to compare remotely with the Huguenots. From their ranks have come names so well-known in England that their foreign origins are now hidden beneath a cloak of familiarity: names like Bosanquet, Courtauld, Dollond, Gambier, Garrick, Minet, Portal, Tizard. But the very survival of such names hinders recognition of just how completely the Huguenots have been assimilated.
Nor, of course, is there necessarily anything foreign about them. Other names have become even harder to disentangle.
Worse still from the historian's point of view, the corruptions and translations may stem from the very earliest months of a refugee's arrival in Britain. It is worth digressing to point out one result of such transmogrifications: estimates of, for example, the number of MPs of foreign extraction in eighteenth-century Parliaments, or of foreign capital tied up in the English banking system during the wars against Louis XIV's France, are likely to be too low, even if based not on the inadequate published naturalisation records but on lengthy, detailed genealogical research.
The number of Huguenots who sought refuge in England was so large, in relation to a national population of perhaps five and a half million at the end of the seventeenth century, that assimilation and intermarriage mean that most English readers of this journal will have some Huguenot blood in their veins. It runs strongly in the upper echelons of English society. It runs strongly too in the south-west and south-east of England, and also in Ireland, where a further 10, refugees settled.
It is rarer in the north and west, and in Scotland and Wales; the only Huguenot communities known to have had organised congregations north of a line from the Severn to the Wash are the small settlement at Chester and the more substantial one at Edinburgh. Just as most Huguenot names have vanished in the process of assimilation, many Huguenot contributions go unrecognised as such because they are deeply embedded.
David Garrick did so much for the theatre, especially in terms of rehabilitating Shakespeare, that it is hard to remember that he was the grandson of a Huguenot refugee who was an elder of the French Church of London. No doubt that is as it should be, for — especially after the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes robbed them of the hope of toleration in France — the Huguenots proved very willing to become English.
Those who came to Elizabethan England had been less prepared to cut all ties with their native country, where the ebb and flow of the fortunes of civil war continued to give them hope of re-establishing themselves when peace finally arrived. Protestants from Dieppe, for instance, took refuge in Rye and Winchelsea on the Kent coast on several occasions, only to return to France when. After the fall of La Rochelle in and the Peace of Ales the following year, however, the Huguenots could no longer hope to resort successfully to force of arms to protect themselves against hostile action.
It followed that unless outside pressures could be brought to bear, they could not influence or change the thinking that had underlain t he Revocation. They did. By then, too, children of the refugees had grown up who were ambivalent about returning to a land that was their parents' rather than their own. As the eighteenth century brought with it successive Anglo-French wars, the pressures on such descendants to underline their Englishness could only grow. In any case, their sense of identity with the Hanoverian succession and their abhorrence of the regime that had unjustly forced their parents to flee were both very strong.
In When the Young Pretender appeared in , the Huguenots were quick to come forward with loyal addresses promising men for service against him. By the time of the Napoleonic Wars, no-one could doubt their Englishness.

On July 26th, a mass meeting of Londoners unanimously declared its 'determination to stand or fall with our King and country' because:. The independence and existence of the British Empire The declaration was signed by the chairman: Jacob Bosanquet, grandson of David Bosanquet who had taken refuge from Languedoc in Assimilation was not accomplished without strains within Huguenot families.
Some of the steps that might be involved are revealed in the autobiography of Sir Samuel Romilly , a law reformer whose career was important for its long and successful. His great-grandfather, a landowner at Montpellier, had remained in the south of France after the Revocation, but continued to worship in Protestant ways within the security of his own home, and brought up his children as Protestants. It was Samuel's grandfather, Etienne, who became a refugee in , at the age of seventeen. He went to Geneva for the specific purpose of receiving Communion, and there decided not to return home but to go instead to London.
Only then did he inform his family of his decision, but his father accepted the situation and sent money to him from France which helped him establish himself as a wax-'bleacher in Hoxton, It is typical of first-generation refugees to marry others of their own kind, and Etienne married Judith de Monsallier, the daughter of another Huguenot immigrant.
Samuel Romilly's father, Peter, was apprenticed to a Frenchman in the City, a jeweller named Lafosse. In due course Peter too married the daughter of a refugee, Margaret Gamault, so Samuel was brought up in surroundings which retained strong Huguenot influences. He described his father as attaching more importance to practical charitable behaviour towards his fellow men than to forms of worship, but Peter made his family regularly attend morning and evening worship on Sundays, alternating between the parish church and the French chapel in which he had a pew.
