CHAPTER XIII
HOME-COMING

IN the tumultuous brooks of Elbeuf still flowed the blue, green and yellow waters of the dye works. The loud, monotonous pounding of the looms made the air of the town tremble. In the long courtyard of the mill trucks loaded with bolts of cloth, barrels of oil and cases of thread, recalled the past. I breathed again the moist, vapid odour of steam and the heavy odour of greasy wool. But close to the main gate a second black marble tablet had been erected, bearing in gold letters the names of the owners and workmen who had died for France. It was a long list, beginning with these two names:

CAPITAINE PIERRE HERZOG
Chevalier de la Legion d'Honneur: Croix de Guerre ...
LIEUTENANT ANDRE FRAENCKEL
Chevalier de la Legion d'Honneur, Croix de Guerre ...

And so the young chiefs led once more and for the last time the invisible company of the dead. My two cousins had been loyal to their ideas of the duties that privilege entails; both had commanded, had led their troops in battle and had perished. In that year of 1918 it was legitimate to hope that common sacrifices might lead to a better understanding between classes and parties for the greater good of France.
Every morning when I arrived at the mill I would meditate for a few moments in front of that tablet covered with Alsatian and Norman names. All of us, both employers and workmen, now came to work later. Clemenceau had had the eight-hour day voted. The Uncles were no more than uncouth memories. We had trouble - after four years of surprises and dangers - in accustoming ourselves to an easy, routine life. With the veterans, I preferred to talk about the war rather than the mill. Saturnin, our friend with the scarred face who worked in the warehouse, had come back a sergeant with the Military Medal, having campaigned in the orient and later been a prisoner in Germany. He would discuss
