LIFE MUST GO ON

and, as a girl, had been admired by Marcel Proust, seemed to me framed in precious imagery, adorned with rare and luminous words, and clothed in noble prose and wondrous legends. For the first time in a year I felt keen interest in a woman's presence, curiosity, perhaps hope. I asked her if her little daughter, who was of the age of my sons, would like to come and play with them, and I took my leave.
Franqoise came to see Gerald and Olivier. She-was a delicate child, excessively intelligent, restless and sensitive. Her mother came to my apartment to take her home. By an extraordinary coincidence Madame de Caillavet was wearing on that day a last year's dress, the same model that Janine had worn a few days before her death. It was a shock, both painful and sweet. She must have found a tragic atmosphere in those rooms filled with portraits in front of which stood arrangements of white flowers. Arnold Bennett, who came to see me about that time, noted in his journal that the air of this house seemed charged with an almost morbid mystery. Once more on this occasion we talked about poets and musicians. Next day I sent her Vase Etrusque by Merimee and Heine's Intermezzo. She expected flowers and was surprised, but I continued to be the man I had been at eighteen who delivered commentaries on the Tractatus Politicus to young girls.
I had promised for a long time to go to Italy to see friends, and I left in January 1925. I was withdrawing more and more from,the mill, and my cousins seeing my indifference had brought their sons-in-law into the business. I was still on the board but I planned to hand in my resignation as soon as the `duck's eggs' had hatched. In Rome, Signora Paolo Orano (she was a French woman, Camille Mallanne, niece of the poet and author of a good novel, Casa Seca, whom I had met during the war) asked me if I wanted to meet Mussolini who was at the threshold of his power. I was taken to the Chigi Palace by Orano. I can still see that long feudal gallery, the little desk and the man with the out-thrust jaw who talked to me about the Divine Comedy. Next day I went to place violets near the Pyramid of Cestius on the tomb of Shelley. From the gardens of the Palatine I gazed at the Forum bathed in a light of dusty gold. I wandered through the Roman Campagna in pursuit of Chateaubriand and the night. In the shadow of the Coliseum I evoked the shade of Byron. A crowd of phantoms accompanied me, thronging so close that I hardly saw the living.
