Excerpt

“You don’t care about society, then, mademoiselle?”

“You won’t tell any one, will you?—but I always feel as though I’ve swallowed my tongue when I go out. That’s the effect society has on me. Perhaps it is that I’ve had no luck. the young men I have met are all very serious, they are my brother’s friends —quotation young men, I call them. As to the girls, one can only talk to them about the last sermon they have heard, the last piece of music they have learned, or their last new dress. Conversation with my contemporaries is somewhat restricted.”

“And you live in the country all the year round, do you not? ”

“Yes, but we are so near to Paris. Is the piece good they have just been playing at the Opéra Comique? Have you seen it? ”

“Yes, it’s charming—the music is very fine. All Paris was at the first night—I never go to the theatre except on first nights.”
