THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE

the end she had accustomed herself to being regarded by the Uncles (her own husband included) as an accessory not essential to manufacturing and therefore without interest, and led a completely vegetative existence.
The Uncles knew their business too well not to realize that the Herzog brothers were the heart and soul of the firm. Accordingly they had kept promising them since 1880 that they would both be made partners as soon as the deed of partnership was redrawn. But `Madame Louis', who had a jealous and exclusive love for her direct descendants, had vowed that her own son should become a partner before her nephews Ernest and Edmond. This son, Paul Fraenckel, was a brilliant fellow and had made an excellent record at the Lycee of Rouen; he was several years younger than my father. By making scenes she had succeeded in forcing her husband to agree to this injustice. In order to accomplish it without open conflict with his nephews, whom he needed and of whom he was fond in his rough way, he had had a new deed of partnership drawn up in secret by a lawyer from out of town; in this deed he had inserted the name of his eldest son, and to conceal the manoeuvre he had had the deed published in a distant agricultural county in an obscure paper which nobody read. For several years he had succeeded in keeping his nephews in ignorance of this trick. Then one day, quite by accident, my father discovered the disgrace.
The customs of the family were so completely patriarchal that the mill at this time did not even have a cashier. The Uncles, my father and his brother, each had a key to the safe and took out of it the money for their personal or business needs, writing down in a ledger what they had taken. They all left in the business the rest of what they earned and they took no interest whatever on their capital. It was the tacit agreement that the expenses of each should represent approximately the interest on his own current account. But such calculations were by no means exact. My father, because such was his nature, always took out less than the others and lived more modestly. Unlike his uncles and cousins, he had neither a carriage nor a male servant. My mother possessed no furs or expensive jewellery. But she directed and supported innumerable charities, and this was the one extravagance of which my father approved.
