Colette Milet gave a different version of this statement, although
Louis was presumably the only eyewitness to the scene and his testimony
is therefore more likely to be accurate.
Colette's version was as follows: "...on the Vigil of the Lord's Ascension, she woke up suddenly, called her page, named Mugot [one of Louis' nicknames], and said to him, 'In God's name, this is ill done. Why was I not awakened sooner? Our people have much to do." For the quoted portions of this testimony as it appears in the original, see DuParc's "Procès en Nullité...", Vol I, p. 407; and Quicherat's "Procès...", Vol III, p. 124.
For a modern French translation, see Oursel's "Les Procès de Jeanne d'Arc", p. 303).
