O TIME, STAY THY FLIGHT

They would answer him in figures: production, orders, prices of raw materials. To be sure there were certain events abroad: the campaign in Morocco and the hostility of Germany, but no one ever mentioned them to him.
My father had finally received the Legion of Honour, after having been nominated by the Prefect with this handsome citation: `For having in 1871-1872 saved for France through his efforts and devotion four hundred Frenchmen. For having founded and supported numerous charitable institutions. Forty years of industrial activity.' The workmen had greeted this award with a hearty, triumphant and tumultuous joy which gave him the keenest pleasure. Not only had one delegation followed another into his office bearing flowers and the classic bronzes of Barbedienne, but he received numerous simple letters from spinners and weavers all saying: `Bravo, Monsieur Ernest, this time the government has done the right thing . . .' It was agreeable and touching to see that this unaffected man had been judged by those under him at his true worth and that work, impartiality and justice retained their value in the eyes of French workmen. My father of course held a banquet in the wool shed for the personnel, and opened the ball with Plulomene, eldest of the Alsatian women, who had been brought to Elbeuf in z87 r in a wheelbarrow pushed by her father. Some weeks later he retired. His health was not good and, moreover, with his habitual generosity he wished to give me his place now that I had a household of my own to support.
I myself was already becoming an oldtimer. Two of my young cousins, Pierre Herzog and Andre Fraenckel, entered the mill in 1912, having taken their bachelor's degrees and done their military service. Both of them had taken the course for Cadet Officers of the Reserve, a new institution which had not existed at the time of my service. Pierre was in the infantry, Andre a chasseur a pied; both possessed the finest qualities of leadership. With them there, I was confident of the future of the mill. Together with Robert Fraenckel we composed a unified and enthusiastic young team imbued with the same theories. Like me, Pierre and Andre had the highest ideals of the duties of an industrialist, a desire to get along with the workmen, innate respect for the interests of the nation and a sense of sacrifice. I was so happy to find in them collaborators after my own heart that I forgot for some months the still bleeding wound of the literary vocation I had missed. Moreover I was not writing any more now; I was too busy.
