O TIME, STAY THY FLIGHT

of this attitude. Nature too long compressed ends by bursting the bonds imposed upon it. For a long time I believed in the virtues of silence; I have now come to understand the liberating virtues of confession.
Luckily for Janine there was the trip to Paris that came each week to break the hold of Elbeuf and the monotony of our recluse life. I now stayed there two days in addition to Sunday, and we decided to rent a more comfortable apartment than my bachelor quarters in Trinity Place; we found one in the Rue Ampere that was new and furnished with taste; and of this Janine made `a thing of beauty'. At this time we knew no one at all in Paris. I had a strong affection for my mother's family and I found a subject worthy of Dickens or the Brontes in the four sisters who, at the age of fifty, came every day dressed in black to sit for hours around their seventy-year-old mother in the drawing-room in the Rue de Tocqueville like almost silent statues of filial devotion, happy to waste silently away amid the family heirlooms. But if I admired the vigour of my grandmother's mind, her unimpaired memory, her sane and lively judgments on Gide, Romain Rolland, Anatole France, and the prodigious prestige which she retained in the eyes of three generations, I perceived that Janine was horribly bored by these collective meditations in the Rue de Tocqucville, and I rarely took her there. As for my clients, I was seeing them all day and had no wish to meet them again socially. And so actually we were very much alone, but we had no need of others. The theatres, concerts, museums and, for Janine when I was away, the dressmakers and milliners, sufficed for a time to fill our lives.
The mill was growing steadily; it now employed almost two thousand workers. Monsieur Henry, the last survivor of the Uncles' generation, had had his first stroke. One morning he had felt a tingling in his right hand, that hand which by winding up an invisible machine had so often cut short my proposals and my thoughts, and two days later paralysis had immobilized half his body. Now that man of iron was no more than a living corpse watched over with insolence and devotion by an ancient Alsatian whom he would summon when he had need of his services during the night by pounding with his cane. Every evening on leaving the factory the three Fraenckel brothers and the two Herzog brothers would come to sit by his bedside.
'Anything new?' he would ask, moving his thickened.tongue with difficulty.
