AMICA AMERICA

shadows with some fair stranger, I sometimes felt that I myself was a shade or, as Lord Beaconsfield said, `dead but in the Elysian Fields'.
But it was not only the city that delighted me. Among its inhabitants I found friends after my own heart. Dean Julian Park, many of the professors, the French people of the neighbourhood, and of course the students, formed an audience for my lectures which to my great joy grew larger day by day. What culture there was in this little group and what good will! When the accounts of cruelty in the letters from Europe made me despair for the future of humanity, I used to think with hope of these numerous American communities where true values are still honoured and which in a world gone mad still cherish Christian civilization.
Unhappily during all this spring of r94i the relations between France and the United States were once more growing worse. Our unfortunate country was accused of a thousand faults. Ill-informed as I was, I could hardly distinguish the true from the false. But when facts are lacking, `loyalty is the light of the spirit'. I determined not to judge a case in which I did not have the essential evidence, and to continue to talk to Americans about the enduring virtues of France rather than about her ephemeral errors. The Red Cross and the Quakers needed money for our prisoners and our children. I gave lectures for their benefit in Buffalo, then in Baltimore, Washington, San Francisco and New York. All life is a surprise. However envenomed the political atmosphere might be, our meetings were stirring, our halls full, our prisoners and our children received aid.

The time had come to fulfil another engagement I had undertaken: to participate in the summer session at Mills College in California. We crossed the continent by plane. There is nothing more astonishing than the immense desert that separates the Middle West from the Far West. Seeing these stretches of arid ground, grey and cracked like the hide of an old elephant, stretching as far as the eye could reach, we admired the pioneers who had crossed this country on foot or in their poor covered wagons. The ascent to 12,000 feet in order to cross the Rocky Mountains made us gasp for breath but the descent at Reno, the rich and verdant oasis of divorce, and that over San Francisco Bay, the most beautiful of landscapes with its globular islands bald and volcanic that rose from the blue water, repaid us for our mountain sickness.
