[Ads-l] Joan of Arc Quote

As I pointed out to Fred privately, what I find interesting is that it's 
found in her rehabilitation trial, which was posthumous. So, the quote 
is reported/indirect/hearsay. Very much like the "heart of a woman, 
stomach of a man" quote attributed to QEI (recorded in someone else's 
letter years later).
