Prefixed to the French edition.

THE Mercury of France for the month of December 1731, makes mention of a young wild girl found in the wood of Songi near Chalons in Champagne. What follows, is the most authentic account of her that I have been able to procure, as well from my conversations on different occasions with herself, as from the information of others who knew her before she began to speak French.
