LA GRANDE BRETECHE
(Sequel to "Another Study of Woman.")

by HONORE DE BALZAC



Translated By
Ellen Marriage and Clara Bell


LA GRANDE BRETECHE

collection. But each one has its proper hour in a conversation--you

Fronsac: 'Between your sally and the present moment lie ten bottles of
champagne.' "

"But it is two in the morning, and the story of Rosina has prepared
us," said the mistress of the house.

"Tell us, Monsieur Bianchon!" was the cry on every side.

The obliging doctor bowed, and silence reigned.
