THE TECHNICIAN WRITES ME

danger. First of all, one had to be careful of the tide which is quite strong in the Thames. Sometimes in the sweetness of the hours Florence and I would forget to let out the painter of our boat and we would suddenly discover that the river had receded so far that the bow was hanging in mid-air. To avoid a catastrophe, I would have to clamber the length of the boat up to the bow and release the rope which had jammed under tension and refused to run. Nearby couples would be entertained at our plight and blond heads would shake with laughter in the moonlight.
The second and more serious danger was love. Florence was engaged to a rich banker in Riga who had been the boarder of the year before; she was to leave at the end of August to marry him. It was sad to acquiesce in losing her so soon. But what had I to offer? When the day came, I went to see her off on the boat in company with her mother and sisters. In travelling costume she looked, as Stendhal would have said, divine. She took me to her cabin:
`Why don't you make the crossing with me e' she implored ...`You can go directly from Riga to France and we'll have a week more of happiness.'
It was a great temptation. But I had agreed to be back at the mill on the first of September, and I had a fanatical respect for promises. I gave her a last kiss, disengaged myself from her, and ran all the way to the gangplank. Her mother and sisters, who knew very well what was going on, surrounded her and stood guard over her in her cabin until the final whistle.
