The mattress remained master of the field. Belleforêt, Father Le Juge, and Corrozet assert that next day
it was picked up by the clergy of that district and conveyed with great pomp and ceremony to the treasury
of the Church of Saint Opportune, where, down to 1789 the sacristan drew a handsome income from
the great miracle worked by the image of the Virgin at the corner of the Rue Mauconseil, the which,
by its mere presence, had on the memorable night between the sixth and seventh of January, 1482,
exorcised the defunct Eustache Moubon, who, to balk the devil, had, when dying, cunningly hidden his
soul in his mattress.
