APPEARANCE AND REALITY

find you having breakfast with a young man wearing my pyjamas?"
" If he were my husband and you were my lover you would think it perfectly natural."
" Obviously. For then I should be deceiving him and my honour would be secure."
" In short I have only to marry him to make the situation perfectly regular."
For a moment he did not understand. Then her meaning flashed across his clever brain and he gave her a quick look. Her lovely eyes had the twinkle he always found so alluring and on her large red mouth was the suspicion of a roguish smile.
" Do not forget that as a member of the Senate I am by all the traditions of the Republic the authorised mainstay of morality and good behaviour."
" Does that weigh very heavily with you?"
He stroked his handsome square beard with a composed and dignified gesture.
" Not a row of beans," he replied, but the expression he used had a Gallic breadth that would perhaps have given his more conservative supporters something of a shock.
" Would he marry you?" he asked.
" He adores me. Of course he would marry me. If I told him I had a dot of a million francs he would ask nothing better."
Monsieur Le Sueur gave her another look. When in a moment of anger he told her it had been his intention to settle a million francs on her he had exaggerated a good deal in the desire to make her see how much her treachery was costing her. But he was not the man to draw back when his dignity was concerned.
" It is much more than a young man in his position of life could aspire to. But if he adores you he would be always at your side."
" Didn't I tell you that he was a commercial traveller? He can only come to Paris for the week-end."
