THE CAPITOL

attracted our attention. It was a happy moment. Five minutes later the first friends arrived. The election had been quick and had been completed on the second ballot by nineteen to thirteen. I was, as Disraeli said, `at the top of the greasy pole'.
That evening we kept with us for dinner some of our dearest friends. Their presence, their obyious pleasure, were sweeter to me than the victory itself. Not only were they my friends but they were all men I loved and admired. `Oh, my friends,' I thought, `how I thank you, being what you are, for being also my friends!' I had a fugitive impression, on that 23rd of June, 1938, that I had won my place in the world and that my old age would be, as befits that time of life, tranquil, respected, honoured. But in the far depths of my mind I heard, as in the Ring, the rumble and roar of the Theme of Destiny.
Never in my experience had happiness been lasting or unmixed. In 1918 the joy of victory was blended with the anguish of illness. In 1924 at the moment when I believed that my household had been restored, death wiped it out. In 1930 a delightful and tender Christmas was followed by the death of little Francoise. In this year of 1938 the Academy had crowned the most daring ambitions of my youth; my wife who had been ill for two years began to recover; my enemies seemed disarmed; my charming and dearly beloved daughter was engaged; my sons were becoming fine young men; my life seemed like one of those fairy stories in which a benevolent magician lavishes his gifts upon the possessor of some talisman, but I told myself with anxiety, as I watched the golden champagne froth within my cup, that the Gods are jealous and that the hour had come to cast into the waves the Ring of Polycrates.

There was one man I especially wanted to see after the election. That was Alain. I knew he had often attacked the Academy in his Comments. For my part I saw nothing but good in this institution, which was one of the very few that had bridged the gap between the French Monarchy and the regimes that followed the Revoluton. But I cared a great deal about my master's esteem and I wished to know how he felt. He had retired some years before and had left the Lycee Henri IV. For several winters he had continued giving an open course at the College Sevigne and this I had attended, happy to be a student once more, to sit at his feet and to listen to those splendid, those unique lectures.
