THE KINGDOM OF GOD

A telephone message informs me that the former headmaster of the Lycee of Rouen has come as a refugee to his daughter's home in New York. I go to see him and am pleased to find an old and charming French scholar who in the time of disaster still wisely quotes the classics.
`How fine it was,' he says, `that Court of Honour, the Corneille of David d'Angers and the noble chapel of the Jesuits in front of which I was going to restore the statue of Loyola. ...'
JThe mail brings me a letter from Gabriel Hanotaux. Despite his eighty-eight years he remains courageous and brilliant. `Everything', he writes, `is going as well as anything can when all goes ill.' A letter from Louis Gillet, excellent and heroic as befits that great-hearted man. A letter from Andre Gide, grave and affectionate; one from Anne Desjardins who is in Algeria and is bravely trying to supply my children with food, for France is famished and food occupies a pathetically large place in our correspondence. Gerald has found a position and is at work; he has lost twenty pounds. Olivier is in a school in the mountains. Of my daughter and my mother I have no news except through the Family ournal which my mother-in-law edits for us at Essendieras and which will be for our great grandchildren a precious chronicle of this frightful epoch. From these wounded envelopes, bandaged by the censor's stickers, there escapes an air of sadness. One dreams, one longs to see again those whom one loves and to say to them those things which letters must omit.
But it is time to get back to work. Already in the neighbouring room can be heard the clicking of my wife's typewriter. Occupied simultaneously by this book, by the lectures that must be prepared, by the war charities that are at present so difficult to support, we Jive almost alone and never have a moment's boredom. A happy marriage is a long conversation that always seems too short. Sometimes in the evening when the news from France has been better, when we have been satisfied by the day's work, when the lights of the city in the calm of night afford a sublime spectacle, we experience a fugitive, a culpable, a foolhardy feeling of assurance.
`Alas!' Simone says shivering. ..`What more is going to happen?' She knows now, as I do, that happiness, like the pink and white anemones of my childhood, is a flower that must not be picked.
