Let us see. Suppose Henri has not the ability to take Yoiiro place then As i promised i will retire and end my Days in the country but Henri will take my place.

A we aria la aae if the work is too much for Hirsil Snail Malee him a consulting barrister under my direction. 1 am sufficiently Well known and appreciated to be sure that practice will not be a a Well and Good i should like that better. A consulting lawyer can give his opinion without his leaving his Home and while living on his a yes at my age with my reputation and experience but this will not do for a Young Mam he must live in the City and even go to see his clients. It will be advisable that during the first years of professional duty i should be near at hand in order to direct him.�?�. A that is just like you you do not wish to retire then of what use is it to Purchase a chateau and go to the expense of making it habitable if neither of you will live there a my wife had induced me to Purchase the inf for of Perc Emont situated in the very Middle of our estate in the commune of the Lime flame. This territory within the in of sure of our land had been a source of trouble to us for a Long time and we desired very much to become its owners but the old Paron Coras de Perc Emont valued his ancestral Manor at an exorbitant Price and make the purchaser pay dear for the Honor of restoring its Ruina we had 8ven up the idea of Post using it when the a Ron died without children and the chateau. Having been put up at auction was bid off by us for s reasonable sum. At least thirty thousand francs were required to Render barely habitable this nest of vultures perched on die Summit of a volcanic Cone aha 1 was by no Means so eager As my wife to incur such an expense. Our country a House spacious neat convenient dts Rai by Bills and surrounded by an extensive Garden appeared to me altogether sufficient and our acquisition had no other Merit in my eyes than that of freeing us from an inconvenient and mischief making neighbourhood. The Deli cities of Oto rocks that bore to Tower of Pedemont a Ere available for the culture of the the Summit covered with s growth of you Notrees would Hereof tit become a go m a r cover for game and i intended if it wore left undisturbed to have there in time to come an enjoyable Reserve for Hunting. My wife did not take this View of the Case. The great Tower had disordered her brain. It seemed to her that in perching herself there she raised her social level five Hundred feet above the level of the sea. Women have Timeir whims mothers have their weaknesses. Henri had always manifested so Strong a desire to possess Perc Emont that Madame Chantabul gave me no respite until i had bought it. It was almost the of fest word she said to Henri while Ems Ciril a him upon his arrival for i had deny a been two Days in full Possession of my new property. A thank you dear father a she cried a behold yourself lord of a yes a i said a Baron of thistles and lord of screech owls. That is something to be proud of. I think you must have some Cartes de visit engraved which will acquaint the people around us with these lofty a my titles Are More lofty than those a he replied. A i am the son of the most Able and most honest Man in the province. My name is a Hattabel and i consider myself As greatly ennobled by my fathers deeds i disdain ail other lordship but the romantic Manor the Steep Peak the wild Wood Are charming playthings for which i thank you my dear father and if you Are willing i shall find there in some Pepper Box a Little nest where from time to time i can read or a of that is the height of your ambition i approve a i said a and i give you the plaything. Yon will allow the game to come Back which the old Baron shot without cessation having i think nothing else to put in his pantry am next year we will Hunt hares together. With this understanding we will go to dinner after which we will talk of More serious i had indeed serious projects for my son and we did hot discuss them for the first time. I wished him to marry his Cousin Emilie Ormonde who was familiarly called Millette or still better Miette. My late sister had married a Rich countryman of the Vicinity the owner of a Large farm who had left at least a Hundred thousand crowns to each of his children Miette Jacques and Ormonde. Jacques was thirty years old Emilie was Twenty two. When i had refreshed Henri a memory in regard to this plan concerning which he did not appear Over anxious to Converse i watched him still More attentively As i had attacked him brusquely in order to Surprise his first impression. It was More sad than Gay and he looked toward his Mother As if to seek in her eyes the answer he must make. My wife had always approved and desired this marriage i was then extremely surprised when speaking instead of her son she said in a reproachful tone a indeed m. Chantabul when you have set your mind on any thing it is like an Iron wedge in a piece of Rock. Can you not leave a single moment of Joy and Liberty to this poor child who is worn out with exhausting labor and who needs to breathe freely is it necessary to talk to him so soon about putting the marriage Cord around his neck a. A is it then Acord to hang ones self with a i replied a Little angry. A do you find it so uncomfortable and do Yon wish to make hit think that his parents of not live happily to Gether a a i know it is not so a Henri replied quickly. A i know Thot we three make Only one. If you both wish me to marry immediately i stand for nothing and wish to stand for nothing but a but if i am entirely alone in my opinion a i resumed a it is i who will count for nothing. Then we do not make one in three and matters will be decided Between us by the majority of a do you know a. Chantabul a said my wife who was not wanting in spirit on the occasion a we Are Happy in marriage in our fashion but every one understands it in his own Way and since the Good to look for or the evil the risk must be personal to our son my opinion is that neither of us should give him advice but leave him to decide the question entirely alone a a this is exactly the conclusion theft i held in Reserve a i replied a but i thought that he was in love with Miette and had decided a Long time ago to marry her As soon As a and Miette a said Henri earnestly a is she As decided As i am and do you think that she is in love with me a a in love is a term which is not found in Miette s vocabulary. You know her a Young woman Calm pure decided and sincere the personification of integrity goodness and courage. It is certain that Miette has a great Friendship for you. She has besides me Only one guide and Friend in the world her brother Jacques Horn she blindly loves and respects. Miette Ormonde will marry whomsoever Jacques Ormonde chooses Ana since his childhood. Jacques Ormonde who is your Best Friend Lias destined his sister for you. What do you wish for better than this a a i could never desire nor Hope for anything better if i were loved a replied Henri a but let me Tell you my father that this affection on which i thought i could rely has for some time grown strangely cold. Jacques did not reply when i announced my approaching return and Emilie a last letters displayed a noticeable to it id you not set her the example a a has she complained a a Miette never complains of any thing she Only remarked a kind of preoccupation in your letters and when i wished her to rejoice with me at the Prospect of your return she appeared to doubt if it were As near As i announced. Come Ray son Tell us the truth. You May safely make confession to your parents. I do not ask you to give an account of diversions for which Miette could reproach you. We have All passed through those we students of former times and i do not pretend that we were better than you but we returned joyfully to the Sheepfold and perhaps in your correspondence with your Cousin you have suffered a regret to escape for those diversions that you would do wrong to take too a i Hope not my dear sir for this regret was very Light and quickly effaced by the thought of your happiness. I do not recall any expressions that could have escaped me surely i am not simple enough to have said or even thought of any thing that Woula furnish a motive for the icy tone that my Little Cousin assumed in replying to a have you the letter with you a a i will get it for you in a Henri went out and my wife who had listened in silence spoke of quickly a my Friend a she said a this marriage is broken off we must think of it no a who who has broken it off for whet purpose a a amletto is rigid and cold she understands nothing of rile requirements of a life of elegance in a certain situation she is incapable of pardoning a slight wandering from the right path in a Young Man s quot a nonsense 1 what Are you talking about grape. Miette Young Miette knows very Well All the Foteles com kitted by mar brother when he studied Law in Feris and i do not believe Henri Basa i Good in Paris Quarter As Many to reproach himself for however Miette never manifested any disquietude or vexation she received him with open arms when he returned two years since As much a seeker after adventures and As Little a lawyer its pos Ihfe. She helped him nay his nets without a word of re fir once of regret. He told this to me not Ong since adding that his sister was an Angel for indulgence and generosity and now you would like a Henri who returned with the letter interrupted us. This letter was not cold As he pretended. Emilie was never very demonstrative and her habitual modesty prevented her from becoming More so but it was Plain that she was under the influence of a trouble and some kind of fright in her own Home that were entirely unusual. A Friendship a she said a is indissoluble and Yon will always find in me a devoted sister but do not distress yourself about marriage if time for reflection is necessary for you it is also necessary for me and we have made no engagement that we can not discuss or put off according to a you will remark a observed Henri addressing me a that she Calls me you instead of thou for the first a that must be your fault a i replied a let us see come to the fact. Are you really in love yes or no with your Cousin a a in love a a a yes passionately in love a a the is at a loss How to answer you a said my wife. A the is asking himself perhaps if he Ever were Henri seized the line his Mother held out. A yes a he cried a that is True. I do not know if the respectful and fraternal sentiment that Miette has inspired in me from childhood can be called love. Passion has never mingled with it on either a and you wish for passion in marriage a a do you think i am wrong a a i think nothing about it i am not making a theory. I wish to know the state of your heart if Miette Ormonde loved some one else you would be perfectly satisfied a Henri turned Pule and blushed at the same time. A if she loves another a he replied in a voice full of emotion a let her say so i have no right to oppose her and i am too pro Tifi to How myself to reproach a a come a i resumed a the thing is Clear and the Cash is settled. Listen we dined at four of clock it is hardly six. You can go to you Cousin s in half an hour. You will take Prunella your Little Mare who has not been used to Plopi your absence and who wifi n a Lantei toe arry you. You have Noth Fie i a Mem Folette excepting that Haring of arrived Abr his ten to grasp her i Taffi and her brother a. This eagerness is the most Siuki and Clear explanation of what concent will see if it is received with of lip offer ence. Nothing More is req we iii Idns of Fang Man of Honor. Welcomed a a a Tiu to main with them an hour and rely Witrak. Tell us your Triumph. Guided by , you come Back immediately without asking for any tiling More. It is very simple and cuts Short All All the theories that we could make As Well As All the Fine words we could a you Are right a replied Henri a i will go at chapter ii. In order to Paas away the time my wife took her knitting i amused myself with a Book. I saw in feed that she was burning to contradict and quarrel with me and i pretended not to suspect it but she burst out at last and i let her alone to find out her thoughts. I discovered that her songs marriage with Miette had become undesirable in her mind and that her letters or words had produced some influence in the estrangement of the lovers. She no longer loved her poor Niece and found her too much of a Vine Dresser too humbly born for her son Herr Fortune was suitable but Henri was an Only son and could aspire to a Rich heiress. He had luxurious tastes and habits that Miette would never understand. She had made of her brother once Brilliant and polished a great peasant fast growing into unwieldy proportions. She Nad All the Virtues As Well As All the prejudice and obstinacy of a country woman. It was allowable to think of this marriage when Henri was still a scholar and a provincial. Now that he had come Back from Paris in All the splendor of his Beauty his toilet and his grand manners he must look for a woman of Quality one capable of becoming a woman of the world. I listened to All this in silence and when it was ended i said a do you wish Meto draw a conclusion a a yes a Well if this marriage is detestable it is neither Henri a nor Miette a fault it is the fault of the great Tower of a indeed a a yes without this accursed Tower we should always be the Good and Happy citizens of former times and we should not find my Sisters children too much like peasants but since we have Machi Collations above our vines and an omame ted door to our Winepress a a a wine press you do not intend to make a wine press of our chateau a a yes my dear Friend and if this does not Sut an end to your Folly i intend to pull own the old Barrack a a you can not do this a cried Madame Chantabul indignantly. A the chateau is your songs you gave it to a when he sees that the chateau has turned your brain he will help me demolish my wife was afraid of raillery. She grew Calm and promised to wait patiently for Emilie a decision but she soon had a new source of agitation. The hours passed and Henri did not return. I was rejoiced i thought his cousins had kept him and that All three were very Happy in seeing each other once More. At last it was Midnight and my wife fearing some Accident was going Back and Forth from the Garden to the Road. When the Steps of Henri a Little Mare were heard and a moment after he was close by us. A nothing happened to me a he replied to his Mother who questioned him with great anxiety. A i saw Emilie a moment and i Learned that her brother had been living for a month on his farm in Cham Gousse where he is having a Large building put up. Emilie being alone at Home gave me to understand that i must not prolong my visit and a it was still Early i directed my course to Cham Gousse to see Jacques. I did not remember the Road and went further than was necessary. At last i saw Jacques talked and smoked an hour with him and have i am after Riding three leagues on if play Back through intricate oaths the intelligence of my horse i Susau not easily have recognised in the obscurity so a and How did Emilie receive your asked Madame Chantabul. A vary pleasantly quot replied Henri a nearly a i could judge in so Short a a no abiding no reproaches of i a \ a and a the was a cordial As t a then nothing i decided a _ a y a a it k subject of marriage a not agitated. That is a question we must discuss with my wife reassured retired to her room and immediately Henri took my Arm and Drew me to the Garden. A i must speak to you a he said. A what i have to Tell you is very delicate and i feared that my Mother would take the matter so much to heart that she would not be prudent. This is what happened to �?o8it Down a i said a and i will listen to Henri very much troubled related to me what follows chapter iii. A first i must Tell you the state of my feelings when i was going to see Emilie. It is very True that before quitting parisian life 1 had a feeling of terror in thinking of marriage. The Ideal dreamed of in my Early youth had grown fainter year after year in the feverish atmosphere of the capital. You saw me so in love with my Cousin when i began my study of the Law that you were afraid i Well understood it of seeing my Progress in my studies retarded by impatience to get through with them. You did not understand that this Fervour of love and marriage was a phase of collegiate life and found its natural place Between the baccalaureate and the first Law entry. Perhaps you did not foresee that the impatience would very quickly be calmed and perhaps desiring Elvis marriage you would have done better to allow me to come Home in the vacations. You thought it your duty to divert me from an anxiety that i never Felt after my first years absence. You passed your own vacations with me travelled with me took me to the sea Liore to Switzerland and then to Florence and Rome in Short you so Well fulfilled your duty that i did not see Emilie for four years. The result is that i dreaded to see her again lest i should find her no longer As charming As she had appeared to my in the splendor of her eighteen years. A i thought of this while galloping toward her abode just As the Sun was setting and was tempted to moderate run Ellen a ardor who went on the wings of the wind. She was forced however to do this for herself As we approached Vig Nolette and to go at a slow Pace up the Sandy ascent that must be climbed to gain a View of the roof of the House buried in there my disturbed spirit Calm anal an indescribably tender. Que fiction took Possession of my heart. The mining was Beautiful there was a Golden glow in the heavens and on the Earth. The mountains apr geared in the mists of a Rosy Violet tint. Cue Road shone under my feet like the a dust of rubies. vines waved playfully on the Hills and the great purple branches loaded with fruit already Black stood erect and Hung in abundant festoons Over my head. Pardon me i became a poet my Happy Youthful Days appeared once More. I dreamed Over the scenes of my forgotten pastorals. I fancied myself transported to the time when in my collegians garb too Short for my great lean arms i approached with a palpitating heart the abode of my Little Cousin then so pretty gracious and confiding i recommenced Mylove drains and it seemed to me that Hopes and desires which had taken entire Possession of my being could not be a vain illusion. I spurred on my horse and arrived panting feverish fearful and passionately in love As when i was seventeen years old a do not be impatient my dear father. I must sum up what was the past a few hours ago a Nast already More than a Century from the a i trembled when knocking at the do oort that Little door painted Green still frayed and mended with great nails As in former times. I took pleasure in recognizing every object and in finding the wild honeysuckle shading the rustic Entrance As fresh As Ever and grown into a great Bush. Formerly an Iron wire extending along this Arbor of vines was sufficient to give Entrance to familiar acquaintances without troubling any one but this hospitable Confidence had Digap Jared i had to wait at least five minutes said to myself Emilie is alone and perhaps she is at the end of the enclosure. It takes time to Cross the Vineyard but she must have recognized my Peculiar Way of knocking she will come and open the door for me As in the old times a a a she did not come old Nicole opened the door and took hold of my horses bridle with an eagerness full of trouble. A enter enter m. Henri 1 yes yes Mademoiselle is very Well she is at Home m. Henri you must excuse us it is washing Day our people have All gone to the River to bring Back the Linen this is the reason you had to wait. These Are the Days when every thing is Topsy Turvy you know very Well m. a i cleared quickly the Long and narrow walk at least too Long for my liking. Formerly they recognized my voice at a distance and Jacques ran to meet me. Jacques was absent. Emilie came to meet me at the head of the flight of Steps. She held out her hand first but there was More terror than Joy in her Surprise at seeing me. She was dressed As she used to be in a Liaf girlish fashion the Muslin dress Well turned Back on the hips the silk apron trimmed with lace the Little Straw hat of peasant shape turned Back behind Over her magnificent braids of Brown hair still As pretty As Ever perhaps even prettier her fresh countenance Lead become a Little More Oval in form her eyes were larger and a More serious expression rendered her glance penetrating her smile More full of meaning. I do not know what we said to each other we were both very much moved. We asked about the news and we did not listen to the answers. A i understood at last that Jacques Jaquet As she always Calls him was putting up buildings on a farm two leagues away. Cham Gousse is his part of the inheritance. For a Tong time the stables and Barm had been going to ruin. He a not wish to Trust the work to a contractor who would have charged him a High Price without doing things to suit him. He had therefore installed himself with his tenants so As to be there from Sunrise to Sunset and watch the labors of the workmen. A a a but he comes to see you every Day a a a no it is too far away this would oblige him to Rise too Early. I am going to see him next sunday and be sure that he does not want for any a a it must be very tedious for him to be there alone a a a no he is so Busy a a but does not this Solitude make Yon sad a a i have no time to think of it there is always so much to do when one has a Home to take care of a a a you must come and live with us a a a that is a a a you Are then still a modal housekeeper a a a it is a a and you like this austere life a a a a As Well a i Ever did a a tou do not think a a a off half we. Quot i believe i came near committing myself when Emilie Rose abruptly As she heard the creaking of the door of the dining room which adjoins the Salon she rushed Forward in that direction and i heard very distinctly these words a he is there do not let him see you a a you Start with Surprise father. I Felt a rending of the heart. I heard the door shut and Enilie returned very much preoccupied and constrained to ask me Idle questions about your health and what you were doing for she knows every thing that concerns Yon and it was i who should have Learned the news from her. I saw that my presence was torture to her and that her eyes watched the clock in spite of herself to count the insupportable minutes of my stay. I took my hat saying that i had scarcely seen you and besides i did not wish to constrain her. A you Are right.,�?T she replied. A you can not come Here As you used to i am alone in the House and this would not be proper but if Yon will go next sunday to see Jaquet at Cham Gousse we shall meet i do not remember if i made any reply. I set out running As if my clothes were on fire went myself to the stable for Prunella and started at full Speed on the Road that would take me Home. And then i stopped Short asking myself if i were dreaming and if i were not insane. A Miette Ormonde unfaithful Orion dealing a Lover in her House no it is impossible a i said a but i wish to know and i will know i will go and see Jacques. I will question him frankly. He is an honest Man he is my Friend and will Tell me the truth. A i took the Cross Road that leads to Chan. Gousse. I lost my Way sometimes for it was entirely dark. At last i arrive in the obscurity and catch a glimpse of the mass of buildings which do not appear to me noticeably changed. I dismount in the midst of furious dogs. I look for the door of the masters dwelling and suddenly this door half opens. In the Light projected from the Interior i see the outline of Jacques Ormonde a Silhouette in the attitude of getting out of bed. A the throws himself into my arms claps me vigorously in his cries out quot that he had gone to bed and that he came very near taking his gun to receive me for he thought it was a robber the dogs made such an uproar. He took Possession of Prunella. And still half half naked led her himself to the stable where i followed to assist him in in bridging her. A let me do it a he said a you can not see. I see in the night like an owl and then i know where to find every in truth he makes All the arrangements gives water Grgin forage to his a Little Friend Prunella a returns without having waked anyone distributes plentiful kicks to his dogs who still growl at me makes me enter into his sum Mer room whose sole luxury consists in guns of All calipers and pipes of All dimensions. There were neither books an in stand nor pens All was exactly like his students room in the latin Quarter. A a Ali How Long since you arrived in the country a a a a since some time this a a a and you come to see me immediately that is pleasant indeed and i thank you. How do they All do at your House truly it is More than a month since i have seen your parents. I have so much to Moliere lean not leave but they knew where i pitch my tent this time since you Surprise me a a a they knew absolutely nothing for they sent me to Vig Nolette where i expected to find a there Jaquett a expressive face became distorted and the great fellow blushed like a Young woman at the least Surprise. He exclaimed in a tone full of fear and distress a you come from Vig Nolette Yogi have seen my sister a a a reassure yourself a i replied a i have seen no one but a a a you have Only seen Herf she has then told you a a a a she has told me every thing a i replied with Assurance wishing at any Price to profit by his emotion in order to snatch the truth from him. A a a she told you but you did not see the other v a a a i did not see the other a a a she told you her name a a a a she did not Tell me her a a a she entrusted the secret to you a a a a she entrusted nothing to a a a a Well i ask in the name of Honor and in the name of the Friendship you have for us not a word of what you Nave found out will you swear not to reveal it a a a a i have no need to swear when Emilie a Honor is at a a a that is right. Iam an imbecile. But you must take some refreshment or smoke a pipe a Cigar which do you wish take choose i am going a a a do not take so much a a a it is very Littie trouble a he replied opening a trap door in the Middle of the room a my provision is always at a and in a moment he descended tit Steps and returned bearing a Basket of bottles of every growth in his Vineyard. A a a thank you a i said a but i have lost the habit of drinking wine in the Way of refreshment. Have you any eau piquant of a a a a truly the acid lated source runs at my door. Here it is entirely fresh put a Little Brandy in it. Hold Here is Fine Champagne and sugar make some grog for a i saw that in serving me according to my taste he uncorked his own wine to drink himself and knowing How wine loosens the Tongue i feigned a great thirst to induce him to drink on his Side. I hoped for the revelation of theg Fand secret but it was useless to Swallow the. Wine of his Hills he always changed the conversation with an address of which i did not believe him capable. A besides i quickly gave up the role. Why did i want to know the name of the Man who had taken Possession of my place in Emilie a heart she ought to have said to me frankly a i do not love you any longer i am going to marry some one Jacques appeared to think that he had told me so. I wished to go directly to the fact and i interrupted him in the midst of his digressions to say a let us talk about serious affairs. When is the marriage to take place a a a a my marriage a he replied candidly a indeed i must wait a month before being Able to declare myself openly. A a a you have then marriage projects on your own account a a a a yes great projects but do not ask me to Tell you any thing More. I am very much in love and i Hope to marry that is All. A month hence Yon will be the first one in whom i shall a a that is to my that Yon will never confide in me in the pts sent chapter for in a month you will have Foi Wotten it and Yon will commence another a a a it a True that i am unsteady. I have Given too Many proofs to deny a but this time it is serious very serious upon my word of Honor a Ltd a sir try a a sobe it hot i did not t marriage. Do not pretend to me. I spoke of Emilie a a a a of my Sisters marriage with you 4b that unfortunately in a doubtful question to my great Nunt quot a r jew a a a a a a doubtful questions is a charming expression a i exclaimed bitterly. A the did not allow me to cof Itienne. A a a a yes certainly a he said it is broken. You ought not to complain for it is according to your wish. Did Yon not at ito to Miette a month or six weeks since a kind of veiled confession in which you doubted of the possibility of her Pardon and Appel red to make up your mind with a very resigned sorrow i understood very Well and questioned by her i told her in a pleasant Way that the pleasures of youth were not a grave thing and did not prevent True love from becoming again serious. She did not know what i meant she asked me a number of questions too delicate to make it possible for me to reply to them. Then she went to see your parents your father was not at Home. She talked with your Mother who did not conceal from her that you were leading a Gay life in Paris and laughed in her free when she manifested astonishment. My dear aunt has sometimes a brusque frankness. She gave Miette clearly to understand that if your infidelity scandalized her the family would he easily consoled in spite of her. There would be no difficulty in procuring a finer establishment for you. Poor Miette was entirely cast Down and repeated the conversation just As it occurred without any reflections of her own. I wished to console her she said a it is unnecessary for any one to teach me what my duty is quot and if she wept i did not see it. I think she has had a great sorrow but she is too it Roud to own it and from the moment she Mew of your mothers aversion to your marriage i do not believe she wishes to hear it spoken a surprised and angry to know that my Mother indulged such feelings but not wishing to learn through those she had wounded their grievances against Here feeling besides that the first wrong came from me and that in my students life i had made my infidelity too apparent i asked Jacques to allow me to leave him. �?~1 am tired a i said a i have a headache and if i am vexed i do not wish to yield to it at this moment. We will put off the explanation to another Day. When will you come to breakfast with me a a a a you a lie replied a must pass the Day with me on sunday. Miette will be Here and you can talk the matter Over together. You will then have consulted your parents and know if my Sisters Pride was voluntarily wounded and As i am sure that you will regret if you will become Good a a a yes we shall become brother and sister for i presume she will Tell me frankly what she should have told me this a thereupon we separated he still Gay. I sad As death. I had indeed a frightful headache which was relieved by the fresh air and now i am stupid and bruised like a Man who has just fallen from the top of a roof upon the when my son had finished speaking we looked at each other earnestly for while telling the Story he had followed me into the drawing room. A i am very Well satisfied with your recital a i said a it is comparatively Clear at the first View. However if i had like a judge to take into consideration the detailed deposition of a witness. Should re Roach you for not being very Clear sighted should ask if it were very certain rat you found a Man in Miette Ormonde a a a i am sure of the words i heard. Would she have said to a woman in speaking of me a he is not let him see Yout besides Jacques confessions a a presents to my judgment singular a what a a a i can not say. I must reflect carefully and make a serious inquiry. I will spare no pains if it is necessary that is if you Are still interested in her. Do you really love her very much is the trouble in which i now see you simply the result of wounded Pride Are you offended to see Emilie so susceptible and so quickly consoled in that Case your reason and your goodness of heart will soon gain the Ascendancy. The affair will Clear up of itself either Emilie will be justified and you will still love each other or she will avow her engagement with another and you will go philosophically to her wedding. But if As i think your sorrow is sufficiently deep if there is grieved and wounded love in your heart then Emilie must return to you and Send away the suitor who has insinuated himself into her favor in order to take advantage of her vexation and your a Emilie ought not to have received the attentions of this pretender. She should have known that i was not a Man to contend for a wife who compromised her reputation Ana gave herself up to vengeance. I regarded her As a kind of Saint she is now no More in my estimation than a Little inconsistent and undignified Village a then you ought not to regret her and you do not regret her a r a it a no father i do not regret her. J had no longer any desire to be married but if i had found her such As i knew her or thought i knew her i would have offered her my hand and heart out of respect to her and to you. Now i am rejoiced to lie Able to break the Bond without grieving you and without caring myself for the regret she will could not obtain from my son any More softened avowal of his sorrow. He was so inflexible and Stern As to disturb the first opinion i had forced and Lead me to think he would be easily quot consoled.
