The Deputy of Arcis

by Honore de Balzac

Translated by Katharine Prescott Wormeley

PART I

THE ELECTION



I

ALL ELECTIONS BEGIN WITH A BUSTLE

Before beginning to describe an election in the provinces, it is
proper to state that the town of Arcis-sur-Aube was not the theatre of
the events here related.

The arrondissement of Arcis votes at Bar-sur-Aube, which is forty
miles from Arcis; consequently there is no deputy from Arcis in the
Chamber.
