The reading and the lecture are both about the memoir written by Chevalier. The author of the reading provides 3 explanations to prove that the memoir is not accurate. The lecturer challenges the claims made by the author. She is of the opinion that the explanations provided in the reading is faulty and hence, states that memoir written by Chevalier is accurate.
To begin with, the author of the reading argues that Chevalier borrowed money from a Swiss merchant to spend on parties and gambling. In the article, it is also mentioned that if Chevalier was rich, then there would be no reason for him to borrow money. This specific argument is directly challenged by the lecturer. She feels that Chevalier had many assets which were converted into money, and hence, it took time to convert. Moreover, she states that a person borrowing money from another does not necessarily imply whether the person is rich or poor.
Secondly, the writer mentions about the skepticism surrounding the accuracy of the conversations between Chevalier and Voltaire. The article mentions that it is not possible for anyone to remember the exact conversations which took place many years ago. The lecturer, however, rebuts these claims by bringing into light, the notes taken by Chevalier each night about the conversations he had with Voltaire. Furthermore, the lecturer also mentions that various witnesses have claimed that Chevalier referred to his notes while writing about the conversations in the memoir.
Finally, the author posits that Chevalier's account of escaping from a prison in Venice is dubious. The article argues that Chevalier had powerful friends in Venice, and thus, used his connections to bribe his way out of the prison. In contrast, the lecturer states that other prisoners jailed in the same prison as Chevalier, had more powerful friends than Chevalier did, but, could not escape from the prison. The lecturer goes on to say that old Venician documents indicate that the ceiling of the prison cell in which Chevalier had stayed, needed some repairs implying that Chevalier had escaped by making a hole in the prison ceiling.
