Cabinet:'rendezvous à Paris de quelques honnêtes gens pour la conversation' (La Bruyère's note). Such clubs were more serious than Salons, and amounted to learned societies, where scholars and cultured people met for discussion.

Note from Of Great Nobles, the ninth chapter of 'Characters' by Jean De La Bruyère (1688)
