PART IV
THE MINISTRY IN FRANCE FROM THE ASSASSINATION OF THE DUC DE BERRI TO THE RETURN OF ALBERT GALLATIN TO AMERICA

He follows her everywhere; in fact, it is an open secret that she is his mistress. Mrs. Caton has married another of her daughters to a Mr. Harvey. The third one is very beautiful, and the mother has great hopes of making a fine marriage for her. Madame Bonaparte talks of nothing else but "Bo" her son, and his marriage.
