Excerpt

te;LIAT. Are you sure you won't regret Paris?

MADAME GUÉRET. Oh, no.

GUÉRET. For the last two years I've hated Paris.

MADAME GUÉRET. Since you began to play cards.

GUÉRET. For the last two years we've had the greatest difficulty in keeping up appearances. This lawyer absconding is the last blow.

FÉLIAT. Aren't you afraid you will be horribly bored at La Tremblaye?

GUÉRET [rising] What are we to do?

FÉLIAT. Well, now listen to me. I told you--

René comes in and takes something off a table. Féliat stops suddenly.

RENÉ. Good-morning, uncle. [He hurries out]

FÉLIAT. Good-morning, René.

GUÉRET. He knows nothing about it yet?

FÉLIAT. No; and my sister-in-law asked me to tell him.

MADAME GUÉRET. Well, why shouldn't you? If they are engaged, we know nothing about it.

GUÉRET.
