CHAPTER IX
FOR BETTER AND FOR WORSE

NEXT day I had lunch with Maggy at the Cafe du Nord and questioned her at length about the angelic apparition that had brightened her dressingroom the night before.
`But, my dear,' Maggy said, `you're not talking about anything except her. You're being rude ... You didn't even come to see the end of my play ... However, I forgive you; the child is unbelievably beautiful ... What do you want me to tell you about her? I met her at the home of friends here in Geneva ... They said she was charming and of a very noble Slav family ... Her mother had left her Russian husband, who was the girl's father, for a Swiss diplomat whom she loved. Hence the residence in Geneva ... Now the husband is dead; an uncle, Jean de Szymkiewicz, contributes a small allowance for the education of the children ... I have seen the mother; she is still beautiful; she is gay and generous, but there is also great disorder in her affairs. The children suffer from the situation ... You can well imagine in this puritan city they are not allowed to forget that, despite their excellent birth, they will not be received by the small local aristocracy ... Hence the girl's desire to work, to earn her own living, in short to get away from here...'

`Good afternoon,' she said.
On her lips the syllables were smooth and long drawn out. Her very musical voice had modulations in the minor key. She suggested that we hire a carriage and have tea at one of the farms near Geneva. Thus began a week of enchantment, understanding and tenderness. From morning till night we were together. Sometimes we took one of the steamers that make a tour of the lake, and she showed me her convent at Lausanne and the beautiful cathedral from whose tower a watchman sings out the fleeting hours. Sometimes we wandered afoot through the
