THE WALKYRIE

loyal and dependable friend to those whom he had adopted. How many happy evenings I have spent listening to him on the terrace of Essendieras while the constellations rose slowly above the cedars, the shooting stars streaked the summer sky with their long trails of fire, the familiar owl quitted her tower to go hunting, and in the immense sleeping plain at our feet the night mists prowled.
It was a country wedding, intimate and charming. In the little town hall of the village my wife's uncle Pierre Pouquet, who was mayor of the district, asked us the conventional questions. Robert de Flers made a lively and emotional speech in his best manner. He spoke very nicely of my parents whose life Simone had described to him; of Simone herself who was so well prepared for the difficult task of being a writer's wife; then he said to me that he hoped some day to receive me in the French Academy and, after having called me for several years `my dear Andre', to refer to me for an hour as `Monsieur'. The church was tiny. Abbe Mugnier officiated there and said sweet and beautiful things to us about love, fidelity, and the relation between art and religion. Gabriel Hanotaux, a retired statesman and an active historian, astonishingly vigorous in mind and body, was the wit of the wedding breakfast which, as is customary in Perigord, was abundant and savoury. The omelette with truffles, the preserved goose and the cherry tarts, together with the maxims of Monsieur Hanotaux, made a thoroughly French mixture. `If everyone knew what everyone says about everyone,' Monsieur Hanotaux said, `no one would speak to anyone . . . ' Abbe Mugnier quoted Chateaubriand and Joubert as well as Goethe and Shakespeare. Simone, pretty and animated, sparkled, and I was proud of her. Yes, it was a very nice wedding. '
In the journal of Mary Shelley one may read between two notes on her reading for the day, `A wedding took place . . . ' This dry discretion pleased me, and it seems that I had formed the strange project of making my second marriage slip into my daily life without causing any change in the arrangement of the latter. Simone, like every young woman, would have liked a wedding trip, a few weeks of solitude for two, in classical Italy or voluptuous Morocco. In this she was right, for the first adjustment of two lives is easier in a foreign environment which relaxes former ties.
