Excerpt from The Little Sergeant, or Le Service Et Les Amours
The surroundings were funereal from entrance to chancel. Yet the presence of Marie Hebert seemed to come to the eyes of one near by, like a blink of sunshine, lighting up his face and telling his beating heart that the hope for better days for him, and possibly for others, had not died yet. The evil to come from the dragging events of the siege had, after all, a possible turn ing point, if one only knew how to reach it with the limited means at his disposal.
