Candide noticed a young Theatine arm-in-arm with a young lady in the Piazza San Marco. They  were an attractive and apparently a very happy couple. Turning to Martin, Candide argued that there  at least were two happy creatures. But Martin was sure that they were among the unfortunates who  people this world. To settle the question, the young man invited the monk and the pretty girl to dine  with Martin and him, and the invitation was promptly accepted. Hardly had they entered Candide's  room at the inn than the girl recognized her host and identified herself as Paquette, the baroness'  maid with whom Pangloss had had a love affair. She stated that she had heard of the frightful  misfortunes that had happened to all at the baron's castle in Westphalia. She herself had fared quite  badly. And then she told her story.
