Paris, la France et l'Europe ont cru à ces canards (1844, Honoré de Balzac, "Monographie de la Presse parisienne", in La grande ville nouveau tableau de Paris comique, critique et philosophique, page 146)
"It would be incomplete not to point out here that Gaspard Hauser never existed, any more than Clara Wendel and the brigand Schubry. Paris, France and Europe believed in these ducks"
