Interestingly enough, the Napsbury Hospital staff began in the 1960s to address her as Francoise d'Orleans. They even changed the name in her records.

"All this is queer, decidedly queer," Moore says in a voice both informed and perplexed. "You know you've got a mind working which is not like ours." She had special talents, but then she lacked things as well, he adds. "You can't help reading that diary without being enthralled. It's delightful, and yet -- you know there's something missing.
