BROTHER AGAINST BROTHER

each one of us and established themselves in the lobby. One evening the manager said to us in a hushed voice:
`They have arrived.'
Next day, I was at work while watching the mistral chase clouds across the bay, when a chambermaid brought in a bunch of flowers and a letter. The letter was addressed to my wife and was from Leon Blum. He reminded her that as a young critic he had been received at the Avenue Hoche by Madame Arman de Caillavet and that he would be happy to meet her granddaughter. He added that it would be a pleasure to talk to me about England and English statesmen. The letter ended with an invitation to have tea on the Fifth Floor that same day. I found an affable, cultured and sensitive man who appeared to have courage, generosity and a sincere desireto do what was right but whose judgment seemed to mewarped on certain points by strong prejudices. When I said good-bye he asked:
`What are you working on now?'
`I am correcting the proofs of a History of England.'
`May I see theme I have nothing to read here and they would interest me very much.'
I sent him a set of proofs and received a kind letter about my book. But I did not see him again except in the hotel lobby on the day of his departure for Paris. That single interview naturally did not enable me to form an opinion of him. The course of events proved that he was not (and did not want to be) a Disraeli. His mistake was not in wanting to achieve certain reforms for the benefit of the workmen, many of which were useful and some urgent; he erred only through weakness and by allowing a minority to force upon him a rhythm of action which France was not able to endure. It is not possible in a democratic regime to govern a country against the wishes of 40 per cent of its inhabitants. In particular, it is just as impossible to govern France against a class that produces almost all the leaders in the Army, the Navy and Industry, as it would be to govern it for long against the interests of its civil servants or workers.
Whatever the divisions among Frenchmen, they cannot get along without one another. If the leaders of the Popular Front and their opponents had understood this they would have avoided many hatreds.

England that year was not less agitated than France, but for wholly different reasons. King Edward VIII who had ascended the throne in
