    پیش فرض CHAPTER I- I

    A DAUGHTER OF EVE


    CHAPTER I. THE TWO MARIES


    In one of the finest houses of the rue Neuve-des-Mathurins, at half-past
    eleven at night, two young women were sitting before the fireplace of
    a boudoir hung with blue velvet of that tender shade, with shimmering
    reflections, which French industry has lately learned to fabricate. Over
    the doors and windows were draped soft folds of blue cashmere, the tint
    of the hangings, the work of one of those upholsterers who have
    just missed being artists. A silver lamp studded with turquoise, and
    suspended by chains of beautiful workmanship, hung from the centre of
    the ceiling. The same system of decoration was followed in the smallest
    details, and even to the ceiling of fluted blue silk, with long bands
    of white cashmere falling at equal distances on the hangings, where
    they were caught back by ropes of pearl. A warm Belgian carpet, thick
    as turf, of a gray ground with blue posies, covered the floor. The
    ,furniture, of carved ebony, after a fine model of the old school
    gave substance and richness to the rather too decorative quality, as
    a painter might call it, of the rest of the room. On either side of a
    large window, two etageres displayed a hundred precious trifles, flowers
    of mechanical art brought into bloom by the fire of thought. On
    ,a chimney-piece of slate-blue marble were figures in old Dresden
    shepherds in bridal garb, with delicate bouquets in their hands, German
    .fantasticalities surrounding a platinum clock, inlaid with arabesques
    Above it sparkled the brilliant facets of a Venice mirror framed in
    ebony, with figures carved in relief, evidently obtained from some
    former royal residence. Two jardinieres were filled with the exotic
    product of a hot-house, pale, but divine flowers, the treasures of
    .botany


    In this cold, orderly boudoir, where all things were in place as if
    for sale, no sign existed of the gay and capricious disorder of a happy
    home. At the present moment, the two young women were weeping. Pain
    seemed to predominate. The name of the owner, Ferdinand du Tillet, one
    of the richest bankers in Paris, is enough to explain the luxury of the
    .whole house, of which this boudoir is but a sample


    ,Though without either rank or station, having pushed himself forward
    heaven knows how, du Tillet had married, in 1831, the daughter of
    the Comte de Granville, one of the greatest names in the French
    magistracy,--a man who became peer of France after the revolution of
    July. This marriage of ambition on du Tillet's part was brought about
    by his agreeing to sign an acknowledgment in the marriage contract of a
    dowry not received, equal to that of her elder sister, who was married
    to Comte Felix de Vandenesse. On the other hand, the Granvilles obtained
    the alliance with de Vandenesse by the largeness of the "dot." Thus the
    .bank repaired the breach made in the pocket of the magistracy by rank
    Could the Comte de Vandenesse have seen himself, three years later, the
    brother-in-law of a Sieur Ferdinand DU Tillet, so-called, he might not
    have married his wife; but what man of rank in 1828 foresaw the strange
    upheavals which the year 1830 was destined to produce in the political
    condition, the fortunes, and the customs of France? Had any one
    predicted to Comte Felix de Vandenesse that his head would lose the
    coronet of a peer, and that of his father-in-law acquire one, he would
    .have thought his informant a lunatic

    پیش فرض CHAPTER I- II

    CHAPTER I- II


    Bending forward on one of those low chairs then called "chaffeuses," in
    the attitude of a listener, Madame du Tillet was pressing to her bosom
    with maternal tenderness, and occasionally kissing, the hand of her
    sister, Madame Felix de Vandenesse. Society added the baptismal name
    to the surname, in order to distinguish the countess from her
    sister-in-law, the Marquise Charles de Vandenesse, wife of the former
    ,ambassador, who had married the widow of the Comte de Kergarouet
    .Mademoiselle Emilie de Fontaine


    Half lying on a sofa, her handkerchief in the other hand, her breathing
    choked by repressed sobs, and with tearful eyes, the countess had been
    making confidences such as are made only from sister to sister when
    two sisters love each other; and these two sisters did love each other
    tenderly. We live in days when sisters married into such antagonist
    spheres can very well not love each other, and therefore the historian
    is bound to relate the reasons of this tender affection, preserved
    without spot or jar in spite of their husbands' contempt for each other
    and their own social disunion. A rapid glance at their childhood will
    .explain the situation


    Brought up in a gloomy house in the Marais, by a woman of narrow mind, a "devote" who, being sustained by a sense of duty (sacred phrase!), had fulfilled her tasks as a mother religiously, Marie-Angelique and Marie Eugenie de Granville reached the period of their marriage--the first at eighteen, the second at twenty years of age--without ever leaving the domestic zone where the rigid maternal eye controlled them. Up to that time they had never been to a play; the churches of Paris were their
    theatre. Their education in their mother's house had been as rigorous as
    it would have been in a convent. From infancy they had slept in a room
    adjoining that of the Comtesse de Granville, the door of which stood
    always open. The time not occupied by the care of their persons, their
    religious duties and the studies considered necessary for well-bred
    young ladies, was spent in needlework done for the poor, or in walks
    ,like those an Englishwoman allows herself on Sunday, saying,apparently
    ".Not so fast, or we shall seem to be amusing ourselves "


    Their education did not go beyond the limits imposed by confessors, who were chosen by their mother from the strictest and least tolerant of
    the Jansenist priests. Never were girls delivered over to their husbands
    more absolutely pure and virgin than they; their mother seemed to
    consider that point, essential as indeed it is, the accomplishment of
    all her duties toward earth and heaven. These two poor creatures had
    never, before their marriage, read a tale, or heard of a romance; their
    very drawings were of figures whose anatomy would have been masterpieces of the impossible to Cuvier, designed to feminize the Farnese Hercules himself. An old maid taught them drawing. A worthy priest instructed them in grammar, the French language, history, geography, and the very little arithmetic it was thought necessary in their rank for women to know. Their reading, selected from authorized books, such as the "Lettres Edifiantes," and Noel's "Lecons de Litterature," was done aloud in the evening; but always in presence of their mother's confessor, for even in those books there did sometimes occur passages which, without wise comments, might have roused their
    .imagination. Fenelon's "Telemaque" was thought dangerous

    The Comtesse de Granville loved her daughters sufficiently to wish to
    make them angels after the pattern of Marie Alacoque, but the poor girls
    themselves would have preferred a less virtuous and more amiable mother.This education bore its natural fruits. Religion, imposed as a yoke and presented under its sternest aspect, wearied with formal practice these innocent young hearts, treated as sinful. It repressed their feelings, and was never precious to them, although it struck its roots deep down into their natures. Under such training the two Maries would either have become mere imbeciles, or they must necessarily have longed for independence. Thus it came to pass that they looked to marriage as soon as they saw anything of life and were able to compare a few ideas. Of their own tender graces and their personal value they were absolutely ignorant. They were ignorant, too, of their own innocence; how, then, could they know life? Without weapons to meet misfortune, without experience to appreciate happiness, they found no comfort in the maternal jail, all their joys were in each other. Their tender confidences at night in whispers, or a few short sentences exchanged if their mother left them for a moment, contained more ideas than the words themselves expressed. Often a glance, concealed from other eyes, by which they conveyed to each other their emotions, was like a poem of bitter melancholy. The sight of a cloudless sky, the fragrance of flowers, a turn in the garden, arm in arm,--these were their joys. The finishing of a piece of embroidery was to them a source of
    .enjoyment

    پیش فرض CHAPTER I- III

    آخی!دلمان برای بالزاک سوخت ...........
    اگر می دانست این همه کتابهایش را می خوانند......!این 51 سال را اینجوری تلف نمی کرد!!!!!!
    ما آخرش نفهمیدیم اینکه بعد از مرگش هم عزیز نشد!!!!!!!


    CHAPTER I- III




    Their mother's social circle, far from opening resources to their hearts
    or stimulating their minds, only darkened their ideas and depressed
    them; it was made up of rigid old women, withered and graceless, whose conversation turned on the differences which distinguished various preachers and confessors, on their own petty indispositions, on religious events insignificant even to the "Quotidienne" or "l'Ami de la Religion." As for the men who appeared in the Comtesse de Granville's
    salon, they extinguished any possible torch of love, so cold and sadly
    resigned were their faces. They were all of an age when mankind is sulky
    and fretful, and natural sensibilities are chiefly exercised at table
    and on the things relating to personal comfort. Religious egotism had
    long dried up those hearts devoted to narrow duties and entrenched
    behind pious practices. Silent games of cards occupied the whole
    evening, and the two young girls under the ban of that Sanhedrim
    enforced by maternal severity, came to hate the dispiriting personages
    .about them with their hollow eyes and scowling faces


    On the gloom of this life one sole figure of a man, that of a
    music-master, stood vigorously forth. The confessors had decided that
    music was a Christian art, born of the Catholic Church and developed
    .within her. The two Maries were therefore permitted to study music
    A spinster in spectacles, who taught singing and the piano in a
    neighboring convent, wearied them with exercises; but when the
    eldest girl was ten years old, the Comte de Granville insisted on the
    importance of giving her a master. Madame de Granville gave all the
    value of conjugal obedience to this needed concession,--it is part of a
    .devote's character to make a merit of doing her duty


    The master was a Catholic German; one of those men born old, who seem all their lives fifty years of age, even at eighty. And yet, his brown,sunken, wrinkled face still kept something infantile and artless in its dark creases. The blue of innocence was in his eyes, and a gay smile of springtide abode upon his lips. His iron-gray hair, falling naturally like that of the Christ in art, added to his ecstatic air a certain solemnity which was absolutely deceptive as to his real nature; for he was capable of committing any silliness with the most exemplary gravity. His clothes were a necessary envelope, to which he paid not the slightest attention, for his eyes looked too high among the clouds to concern themselves with such materialities. This great unknown artist belonged to the kindly class of the self-forgetting, who give their time and their soul to others, just as they leave their gloves on every table and their umbrella at all doors. His hands were of the kind that are dirty as soon as washed. In short, his old body, badly poised on its knotted old legs, proving to what degree a man can make it the mere accessory of his soul, belonged to those strange creations which have been properly depicted only by a German,--by Hoffman, the poet of that which seems not to exist but yet
    .has life


    Such was Schmucke, formerly chapel-master to the Margrave of Anspach; a musical genius, who was now examined by a council of devotes, and asked if he kept the fasts. The master was much inclined to answer, "Look at me!" but how could he venture to joke with pious dowagers and Jansenist confessors? This apocryphal old fellow held such a place in the lives of the two Maries, they felt such friendship for the grand and simple-minded artist, who was happy and contented in the mere comprehension of his art, that after their marriage, they each gave him an annuity of three hundred francs a year,--a sum which sufficed to pay for his lodging, beer, pipes, and clothes. Six hundred francs a year and his lessons put him in Eden. Schmucke had never found courage to confide his poverty and his aspirations to any but these two adorable young girls, whose hearts were blooming beneath the snow of maternal rigor and the ice of devotion. This fact explains Schmucke and the
    .girlhood of the two Maries


    No one knew then, or later, what abbe or pious spinster had discovered
    the old German then vaguely wandering about Paris, but as soon as
    mothers of families learned that the Comtesse de Granville had found
    a music-master for her daughters, they all inquired for his name and
    address. Before long, Schmucke had thirty pupils in the Marais. This
    tardy success was manifested by steel buckles to his shoes, which were
    lined with horse-hair soles, and by a more frequent change of linen. His
    .artless gaiety, long suppressed by noble and decent poverty, reappeared He gave vent to witty little remarks and flowery speeches in his German-Gallic patois, very observing and very quaint and said with an air which disarmed ridicule. But he was so pleased to bring a laugh to the lips of his two pupils, whose dismal life his sympathy had penetrated, that he would gladly have made himself wilfully ridiculous
    .had he failed in being so by nature

    پیش فرض CHAPTER I- IV



    CHAPTER I- IV





    According to one of the nobler ideas of religious education, the young
    girls always accompanied their master respectfully to the door. There
    they would make him a few kind speeches, glad to do anything to give
    him pleasure. Poor things! all they could do was to show him their
    womanhood. Until their marriage, music was to them another life within
    their lives, just as, they say, a Russian peasant takes his dreams for
    reality and his actual life for a troubled sleep. With the instinct
    of protecting their souls against the pettiness that threatened to
    overwhelm them, against the all-pervading asceticism of their home, they flung themselves into the difficulties of the musical art, and spent
    themselves upon it. Melody, harmony, and composition, three daughters of heaven, whose choir was led by an old Catholic faun drunk with music
    were to these poor girls the compensation of their trials; they
    ,made them, as it were, a rampart against their daily lives. Mozart Beethoven, Gluck, Paesiello, Cimarosa, Haydn, and certain secondary
    geniuses, developed in their souls a passionate emotion which never
    passed beyond the chaste enclosure of their breasts, though it permeated
    .that other creation through which, in spirit, they winged their flight
    When they had executed some great work in a manner that their master
    declared was almost faultless, they embraced each other in ecstasy and
    .the old man called them his Saint Cecilias



    The two Maries were not taken to a ball until they were sixteen years
    of age, and then only four times a year in special houses. They were not
    allowed to leave their mother's side without instructions as to their
    behavior with their partners; and so severe were those instructions that
    they dared say only yes or no during a dance. The eye of the countess
    never left them, and she seemed to know from the mere movement of their lips the words they uttered. Even the ball-dresses of these poor little
    things were piously irreproachable; their muslin gowns came up to their
    chins with an endless number of thick ruches, and the sleeves came down to their wrists. Swathing in this way their natural charms, this costume gave them a vague resemblance to Egyptian hermae; though from these blocks of muslin rose enchanting little heads of tender

    .melancholy
    They felt themselves the objects of pity, and inwardly resented it. What
    ?woman, however innocent, does not desire to excite envy



    No dangerous idea, unhealthy or even equivocal, soiled the pure pulp of
    ,their brain; their hearts were innocent, their hands were horribly red and they glowed with health. Eve did not issue more innocent from the
    hands of God than these two girls from their mother's home when they
    went to the mayor's office and the church to be married, after receiving
    the simple but terrible injunction to obey in all things two men with
    whom they were henceforth to live and sleep by day and by night. To
    their minds, nothing could be worse in the strange houses where they
    .were to go than the maternal convent



    Why did the father of these poor girls, the Comte de Granville, a wise
    and upright magistrate (though sometimes led away by politics), refrain
    from protecting the helpless little creatures from such crushing
    despotism? Alas! by mutual understanding, about ten years after
    .marriage, he and his wife were separated while living under one roof
    The father had taken upon himself the education of his sons, leaving
    that of the daughters to his wife. He saw less danger for women than for
    ,men in the application of his wife's oppressive system. The two Maries destined as women to endure tyranny, either of love or marriage, would
    be, he thought, less injured than boys, whose minds ought to have freer
    play, and whose manly qualities would deteriorate under the powerful
    compression of religious ideas pushed to their utmost consequences. Of
    .four victims the count saved two



    The countess regarded her sons as too ill-trained to admit of the
    slightest intimacy with their sisters. All communication between the
    poor children was therefore strictly watched. When the boys came home
    from school, the count was careful not to keep them in the house. The
    boys always breakfasted with their mother and sisters, but after that
    the count took them off to museums, theatres, restaurants, or, during
    the summer season, into the country. Except on the solemn days of some family festival, such as the countess's birthday or New Year's day, or the day of the distribution of prizes, when the boys remained in their
    father's house and slept there, the sisters saw so little of their
    brothers that there was absolutely no tie between them. On those days
    the countess never left them for an instant alone together. Calls
    of "Where is Angelique?"--"What is Eugenie about?"--"Where are my
    daughters?" resounded all day. As for the mother's sentiments towards
    her sons, the countess raised to heaven her cold and macerated eyes, as
    .if to ask pardon of God for not having snatched them from iniquity

    پیش فرض CHAPTER I- V



    CHAPTER I- V




    ,Her exclamations, and also her reticences on the subject of her sons
    were equal to the most lamenting verses in Jeremiah, and completely
    deceived the sisters, who supposed their sinful brothers to be doomed to
    .perdition



    When the boys were eighteen years of age, the count gave them rooms
    in his own part of the house, and sent them to study law under the
    supervision of a solicitor, his former secretary. The two Maries knew
    nothing therefore of fraternity, except by theory. At the time of the
    marriage of the sisters, both brothers were practising in provincial
    courts, and both were detained by important cases. Domestic life in
    many families which might be expected to be intimate, united, and
    homogeneous, is really spent in this way. Brothers are sent to a
    ,distance, busy with their own careers, their own advancement, occupied
    perhaps, about the good of the country; the sisters are engrossed in
    a round of other interests. All the members of such a family live
    disunited, forgetting one another, bound together only by some feeble
    tie of memory, until, perhaps, a sentiment of pride or self-interest
    either joins them or separates them in heart as they already are in
    fact. Modern laws, by multiplying the family by the family, has created
    .a great evil,--namely, individualism



    In the depths of this solitude where their girlhood was spent, Angelique
    and Eugenie seldom saw their father, and when he did enter the grand
    apartment of his wife on the first floor, he brought with him a saddened
    face. In his own home he always wore the grave and solemn look of a
    magistrate on the bench. When the little girls had passed the age of
    dolls and toys, when they began, about twelve, to use their minds (an
    epoch at which they ceased to laugh at Schmucke) they divined the secret of the cares that lined their father's forehead, and they recognized
    beneath that mask of sternness the relics of a kind heart and a fine
    character. They vaguely perceived how he had yielded to the forces of
    religion in his household, disappointed as he was in his hopes of a
    husband, and wounded in the tenderest fibres of paternity,--the love of
    a father for his daughters. Such griefs were singularly moving to the
    hearts of the two young girls, who were themselves deprived of all
    ,tenderness. Sometimes, when pacing the garden between his daughters
    with an arm round each little waist, and stepping with their own short
    steps, the father would stop short behind a clump of trees, out of sight
    of the house, and kiss them on their foreheads; his eyes, his lips, his
    .whole countenance expressing the deepest commiseration


    You are not very happy, my dear little girls," he said one day; "but I"
    ".shall marry you early. It will comfort me to have you leave home



    Papa," said Eugenie, "we have decided to take the first man who"
    ".offers


    Ah!" he cried, "that is the bitter fruit of such a system. They want to"
    .make saints, and they make--" he stopped without ending his sentence



    Often the two girls felt an infinite tenderness in their father's
    Adieu," or in his eyes, when, by chance, he dined at home. They pitied"
    .that father so seldom seen, and love follows often upon pity

    پیش فرض CHAPTER I- VI


    CHAPTER I- VI




    This stern and rigid education was the cause of the marriages of the two
    sisters welded together by misfortune, as Rita-Christina by the hand
    of Nature. Many men, driven to marriage, prefer a girl taken from a
    convent, and saturated with piety, to a girl brought up to worldly
    ideas. There seems to be no middle course. A man must marry either an
    educated girl, who reads the newspapers and comments upon them, who
    ,waltzes with a dozen young men, goes to the theatre, devours novels
    cares nothing for religion, and makes her own ethics, or an ignorant and
    innocent young girl, like either of the two Maries. Perhaps there may
    be as much danger with the one kind as with the other. Yet the vast
    majority of men who are not so old as Arnolphe, prefer a religious Agnes
    .to a budding Celimene



    The two Maries, who were small and slender, had the same figure, the
    same foot, the same hand. Eugenie, the younger, was fair-haired, like
    her mother, Angelique was dark-haired, like the father. But they both
    had the same complexion,--a skin of the pearly whiteness which shows the richness and purity of the blood, where the color rises through a
    .tissue like that of the jasmine, soft, smooth, and tender to the touch
    Eugenie's blue eyes and the brown eyes of Angelique had an expression of artless indifference, of ingenuous surprise, which was rendered by the
    vague manner with which the pupils floated on the fluid whiteness of
    the eyeball. They were both well-made; the rather thin shoulders would
    develop later. Their throats, long veiled, delighted the eye when their
    husbands requested them to wear low dresses to a ball, on which occasion they both felt a pleasing shame, which made them first blush behind closed doors, and afterwards, through a whole evening in

    .company


    On the occasion when this scene opens, and the eldest, Angelique, was
    weeping, while the younger, Eugenie, was consoling her, their hands and
    arms were white as milk. Each had nursed a child,--one a boy, the other
    ,a daughter. Eugenie, as a girl, was thought very giddy by her mother
    .who had therefore treated her with especial watchfulness and severity
    ,In the eyes of that much-feared mother, Angelique, noble and proud
    ,appeared to have a soul so lofty that it would guard itself, whereas
    the more lively Eugenie needed restraint. There are many charming beings misused by fate,--beings who ought by rights to prosper in this life
    but who live and die unhappy, tortured by some evil genius, the victims
    of unfortunate circumstances. The innocent and naturally light-hearted
    Eugenie had fallen into the hands and beneath the malicious despotism of a self-made man on leaving the maternal prison. Angelique, whose nature inclined her to deeper sentiments, was thrown into the upper .spheres of Parisian social life, with the bridle lying loose upon her neck

    پیش فرض CHAPTER II- I

    سلام

    با تشکر از دوستانی که می خونن! خدا دلتون و شاد کنه ..... دل بالزاک که پوسید!!!!!!!!!!



    CHAPTER II. A CONFIDENCE BETWEEN SISTERS




    Madame de Vandenesse, Marie-Angelique, who seemed to have broken down under a weight of troubles too heavy for her soul to bear, was lying
    back on the sofa with bent limbs, and her head tossing restlessly. She
    .had rushed to her sister's house after a brief appearance at the Opera
    Flowers were still in her hair, but others were scattered upon the
    .carpet, together with her gloves, her silk pelisse, and muff and hood
    Tears were mingling with the pearls on her bosom; her swollen eyes
    appeared to make strange confidences. In the midst of so much luxury her distress was horrible, and she seemed unable to summon courage

    .to speak


    Poor darling!" said Madame du Tillet; "what a mistaken idea you have of"
    " !my marriage if you think that I can help you



    Hearing this revelation, dragged from her sister's heart by the violence
    of the storm she herself had raised there, the countess looked with
    stupefied eyes at the banker's wife; her tears stopped, and her eyes
    .grew fixed



    .Are you in misery as well, my dearest?" she said, in a low voice"


    ".My griefs will not ease yours "


    But tell them to me, darling; I am not yet too selfish to listen. Are"
    " ?we to suffer together once more, as we did in girlhood


    But alas! we suffer apart," said the banker's wife. "You and I live in"
    two worlds at enmity with each other. I go to the Tuileries when you are
    not there. Our husbands belong to opposite parties. I am the wife of an
    ,ambitious banker,--a bad man, my darling; while you have a noble, kind
    " .and generous husband



    Oh!don't reproach me!" cried the countess. "To understand my"
    ,position, a woman must have borne the weariness of a vapid and barren life, and have entered suddenly into a paradise of light and love; she must know the happiness of feeling her whole life in that of another; of
    espousing, as it were, the infinite emotions of a poet's soul; of living
    a double existence,--going, coming with him in his courses through
    space, through the world of ambition; suffering with his griefs, rising
    on the wings of his high pleasures, developing her faculties on some
    vast stage; and all this while living calm, serene, and cold before an
    observing world. Ah! dearest, what happiness in having at all hours an
    enormous interest, which multiplies the fibres of the heart and varies
    them indefinitely! to feel no longer cold indifference! to find one's
    very life depending on a thousand trifles!--on a walk where an eye
    will beam to us from a crowd, on a glance which pales the sun! Ah! what
    intoxication, dear, to live! to _live_ when other women are praying on
    ,their knees for emotions that never come to them! Remember, darling
    that for this poem of delight there is but a single moment,--youth! In
    a few years winter comes, and cold. Ah! if you possessed these living
    " ---riches of the heart, and were threatened with the loss of them

    پیش فرض CHAPTER II- II

    CHAPTER II- II




    Madame du Tillet, terrified, had covered her face with her hands during
    .the passionate utterance of this anthem


    ,I did not even think of reproaching you, my beloved," she said at last"
    seeing her sister's face bathed in hot tears. "You have cast into my
    soul, in one moment, more brands than I have tears to quench. Yes, the
    life I live would justify to my heart a love like that you picture. Let
    me believe that if we could have seen each other oftener, we should not
    now be where we are. If you had seen my sufferings, you must have valued your own happiness the more, and you might have strengthened me to resist my tyrant, and so have won a sort of peace. Your misery is an incident which chance may change, but mine is daily and perpetual. To my husband I am a peg on which to hang his luxury, the sign-post of his ambition, a satisfaction to his vanity. He has no real affection for
    me, and no confidence. Ferdinand is hard and polished as that piece of
    .marble," she continued, striking the chimney-piece. "He distrusts me
    Whatever I may want for myself is refused before I ask it; but as for
    what flatters his vanity and proclaims his wealth, I have no occasion to
    express a wish. He decorates my apartments; he spends enormous sums upon my entertainments; my servants, my opera-box, all external matters are maintained with the utmost splendor. His vanity spares no expense; he would trim his children's swaddling-clothes with lace if he could, but he would never hear their cries, or guess their needs. Do you understand me? I am covered with diamonds when I go to court; I wear the richest jewels in society, but I have not one farthing I can use. Madame du Tillet, who, they say, is envied, who appears to float in gold, has not a hundred francs she can call her own. If the father cares little for his child, he cares less for its mother. Ah! he has cruelly made me
    feel that he bought me, and that in marrying me without a 'dot' he was
    wronged. I might perhaps have won him to love me, but there's an outside influence against it,--that of a woman, who is over fifty years of age, the widow of a notary, who rules him. I shall never be free, I know
    that, so long as he lives. My life is regulated like that of a queen; my
    meals are served with the utmost formality; at a given hour I must drive
    to the Bois; I am always accompanied by two footmen in full dress; I am
    obliged to return at a certain hour. Instead of giving orders, I
    :receive them. At a ball, at the theatre, a servant comes to me and says
    ,Madame's carriage is ready,' and I am obliged to go, in the midst'
    perhaps, of something I enjoy. Ferdinand would be furious if I did not
    obey the etiquette he prescribes for his wife; he frightens me. In the
    midst of this hateful opulence, I find myself regretting the past, and
    thinking that our mother was kind; she left us the nights when we could
    talk together; at any rate, I was living with a dear being who loved me
    and suffered with me; whereas here, in this sumptuous house, I live in a
    " .desert
