THE SYLPHIDE

weavers used to manipulate by hand. Martel and I worked that winter as hard as men can work. Finally our first line was ready for the following spring. It comprised too small a number of series, but it had variety and grace.
`Now the thing to do,' Edmond said, `is for you to come with me to Paris next Thursday. . . . '
The main office sighed but resigned itself. A young man in Paris! What an innovation! Wednesday evening, in morning coat and high hat, for such was then the custom, I departed with Edmond. My reception was kind. All the old clothiers, the Dormeuils, the Pezes, the Cherets, who had known our firm for a long time, had been sorry not to be able to give us any more orders. They inspected my poor efforts with generous tolerance. I returned that evening having placed all my patterns and sold three or four hundred pieces. The only trouble was that my selection was now exhausted. I had not foreseen that each of the important firms would demand exclusive designs, which rendered an immense variety necessary. Our preparations had been on much too small a scale. But this comparative success inspired my elders with confidence and I obtained more generous appropriations for the following season.
Three years later my department of designs was manufacturing eight to ten thousand pieces a year, and the gross sales of the mill had passed by several million francs the high mark of the most prosperous years of the past. This was no special credit to me. The old factory was a robust and powerful organism ready for action. My role had been confined to evoking from it an effort adapted to the new times; it had immediately carried it out with its traditional perfection. I was a little like the governor of a colony who has as support behind him the power and riches of a substantial empire. But success sometimes gives an unearned prestige, and as it happened I found myself at twenty-three the independent and uncontested head of a vast industrial domain. I had acquired some knowledge through experience. The Uncles' generation knew nothing of this new trade. They let me do my work in peace and, since they had great need of me, they treated me well. I had retained the memory of the injustice from which my father had previously suffered, and I promised myself as soon as I felt I had more power to see that the legal name of the firm should become: FRAENCKEL AND HERZOG. In this I succeeded a little later.
