Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1908 edition. Excerpt: ...on her, I think.... Did you not speak of our father just now? Do you wish to be the murderer of your sister? Michel. Yes, if it were true that a deceiver. Fabrice. Ah! as for that, do not speak of that.... Such a thing is impossible... Michel. What will you do? Fabrice. You ask me what? Michel. I have good cause to be angry, have I not? Fabrice.

What a foolish and useless idea...show more
