Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1886 edition. Excerpt: ... us, she still has a liking for me. I may add that I am not surprised at it. She is pious, she is good, she is perfect, but she is a woman, and who knows but that the stories she has been told to estrange her from me may have had the opposite effect % Women are attracted by les mauvais sujets, and they are quite right, seeing that the so-called bad are often more agreeable than the good.

The main thing is to see Aliette alone--that is the objective point upon which my remarkable abilities must henceforth be concentrated. My first thought naturally was to write to her, but it only made me shrug my shoulders. In a difficult undertaking, the man who writes instead of acting is a litterateur--and nothing more. October 12th. I have been twice at the Courteheuses. The first time my reception was glacial, the second I seemed only to inspire abhorrence. Mme. de Courteheuse and her aged sister received me as they might have received Antichrist had he had the hardihood to call.

I do not hesitate to declare that henceforth I consider myself at war with the Courteheuse family, and that I propose going just as far as the usages of war will permit.

My motives are not bad. I do not wish to harm Aliette, but only to marry her- and if the marriage, regarded from a selfish point of view, should prove advantageous to me, it is only what my rank and position entitle me to expect. I wage war, therefore, simply for my love, for justice, and for good sense against the fanaticism of three old women (for the admiral comes under this category).

In such a struggle every weapon, every stratagem known...
