EURYDICE TWICE LOST

beyond our villa and the beach. We had long frank conversations; these weeks might have been sweet if the weather had not been so cold, the children sick and the servants irritable. But various catastrophes so marred our vacation that at the beginning of February we decided to return. Janine was five months pregnant; she was sinking into despair.
We had barely arrived at Neuilly when she was put to bed with a violent fever. Her teeth chattered.
`But what has shee' I asked the doctors in alarm.
'Auto-infection,' they replied with ominous vagueness. ..`Septicemia ... It seems to be extremely serious.'
They decided upon surgical intervention. Janine agreed to the operation bravely but without illusions. She had asked to see her children again. The two little ones had been seated near her bed and had been playing at being doctors: ~

When the chloroform wore off and she regained consciousness she suffered a great deal. I remained near her with the nurse. She talked like a person who was going to die and knew it. She declared that she was a true believer and asked me to have Masses said for the repose of her soul.

I remained until morning kneeling beside the small Directoire bed holding her hand as it grew cold.
At the time when the noises in the street began and the screeching of the iron shutters of the shops, I went out to look for flowers. I returned with my arms full of lilacs and roses which I arranged around her. `Poor Ginette!' I thought. `This is the first time that you've not arranged your flowers yourself. . . . '
I talked aloud to the body lying there. I could not imagine that Janine would no longer answer me. She was so beautiful, so calm. A vague smile was etched around the corners of her pale lips. The strong perfume of the lilacs filled the room. In my mind it evoked the forked tree of my childhood, my first reading and the Queen of The Young Russian Soldiers. I had found the Queen in the wide, wide world; I had chosen her, won
