THE CAPITOL

But it was not the mirage of the Cupola that inspired me with the desire to write a Chateaubriand. My hero intrigued me: the women who surrounded him - Pauline de Beaumont, Delphine de Custine, Nathalie de Noailles, Juliette Recamier and Celeste de Chateaubriand herself - were a delight to draw; the epoch was one of the most dramatic in history and permitted me to sketch a picture of France; finally to live in intimate association with the beautiful Memoires d'Outre-Tombe was enchanting. I went to Brittany and from St. Malo to Combourg, from Fougeres to Grand-Be, I tried to become thoroughly acquainted with the scenes in which Chateaubriand had passed his youth. Few writers to-day have so many faithful followers as he. The Chateaubriand Society helped me and protected me from errors. Countess de Durfort, nee Sibylle de Chateaubriand, opened the Combourg archives to me. If my wife and irreplaceable collaborator had not been painfully ill I should have been happy in my work. But all that year was saddened by the dangers to Simone caused by a malady which was ill-defined but terrifying in its ravages.
The final touches on Chateaubriand had almost been completed, and with Monsieur Doumic I was searching for a title for the ten lectures, when he was taken ill with pneumonia. For a long time he had seemed to be growing feebler; it was a shock and a sorrow when I learned on the and of December that he was dead.
At this time I often saw Marshal Petain, who was President of the French Information Centre for the United States, of which I had been named administrator. At the meetings of the Council he was friendly, exacting, punctual and precise. One evening as we were leaving a meeting he said to me:
`Why don't you present yourself as a candidate for Doumic's chair?' I was astonished.
`I had not thought of it, Monsieur le Marechal ... And then a second defeat would give me more pain than success would give me pleasure.' ` I shall give you my support.'
I consulted some of my friends and then sent off my letter of candidacy. It was addressed to the Permanent Secretary, and one had to weigh each word, for it was read aloud before the Academy and judged by severe critics. Austerity, simplicity, brevity are the rules. Then begins the period of visits. Many candidates retain a poisoned memory of this time. This
