THE WALKYRIE

our two families were such that the passionate friendship that united us could not continue except in marriage, our feelings were stronger than the objections of our friends. One evening we had a long conversation which lasted until dawn and in the course of which we decided to be married the following summer. Fran~oise was of the same age as my sons and got along well with them. Why not bring together the ravelled threads of two families torn by destiny and weave from them a single happiness? When we went to Elbeuf to announce this news to my mother, she received it with joy. It was decided that the wedding should take place in Perigord and that only the official witnesses were to be present.
I did not wish Pontigtiy to be sacrificed to Essendieras, and at the end of August I went to Burgundy to attend a`decade' and there encountered again, as of old, Gide, Charles Du Bos and Martin du Gard. Then on the 4th of September 1926 I left for Perigord. There I found the Abbe Mugnier who had promised to marry us (he had married my mother-inlaw and was to marry my daughter), Gabriel Hanotaux and Robert de Flers who were to be our witnesses. I had also asked Aimery BlacqueBelair, the lieutenant of the Dialogues sur le Commandement and his wife, a pair for whom I felt a brother's affection, to come and join us.
For a year I had known Simone's family. Her mother, a vivacious and passionate woman, had a true talent as a comedienne which appeared in her way of telling stories. An excellent friend to those whom she liked, she was a redoubtable enemy to those she hated. She loved to be obeyed, but in exchange for submission she offered limitless devotion. Moreover this authoritarian person recognized one authority herself, that of her husband Maurice Pouquet. It was easy to understand why she respected him. A native of Perigord, brought up on a country estate, graduate in engineering from the School of Mines, he combined the shrewd wisdom of the peasant with an astonishing and varied culture. He knew the most unexpected things, from the technique of industry to that of the fine arts, from the history of Egypt to that of Sweden; from the geology of Paraguay to the physiology of truffles. He was capable of managing a country estate, an industry, a bank, or of telling a story with a precision of detail that enchanted a writer, and during the war of 1914 he had systematized the technique of aerial photography for the French Army.
