FOR BETTER AND FOR WORSE

her future husband. They had the good grace not to harbour a grudge against me. Monsieur Berthon undertook to enrol Janine in the different courses at Oxford which a girl could attend. She happily followed those in literature but was bored with the class in political economy which, for reasons which escape me, we forced upon her. I still own a notebook which she covered with humorous sketches alternating with scraps of a theory of prices.
In all the courses she attended her beauty turned the heads of the young men. Soon she was besieged with admirers wanting to take her out on the river or to the theatre. When I came to see her and she described her success, with amusement but without vanity, for she was modest, I was somewhat jealous. What would happen if one of these handsome blond or red-headed young athletes offered to marry her?

In her company I learned to know Oxford. She took me to see Magdalen, Christchurch, All Souls and at University College the Cenotaph of Shelley.
Beneath the willow trees along the river we talked about our future. I was now determined to marry her. In the course of her year at Oxford she had acquired I know not what quality of assurance which inspired me with confidence in our designs.

I knew that my father had thought of a different alliance for me which would have brought together in my hands great industrial and financial power, but I knew too that he had a tender heart and that our romance would touch him. What were the best means and the best moment to break the news of this romance?
It was a characteristic of my family that it was impossible for them to transmit a message that was painful or simply important directly to the person for whom it was intended. A telegram announcing a sickness, a death or even an engagement had to be addressed to an uncle or a cousin who would then have the duty of `preparing' the person concerned. Faithful to this local tradition, I asked my sister Germaine, an energetic girl who was acquainted with the situation, to `prepare' my mother. As
