This chapter discusses the many changes encountered by the hospice of the Quinze-Vingts in the eighteenth century. One of these is the sale of the grounds of the Quinze-Vingts on December 31, 1779, and their transfer to the rue de Charenton in the former residence of the Black Musketeers. The Quinze-Vingts also began to lose their status as a free association of religious and charitable purpose reserved for a limited number of members. They assumed the character of a public welfare establishment dependent not only on royal authority but also on the prosperity of public finances, and were meant to aid the greatest possible number of blind people according to the principle of assisted living.
