Mademoiselle Celeste : A Romance of the French Revolution (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Mademoiselle Celeste: A Romance of the French Revolution IT was growing dusk on that last day of March. 1794. With gusts of wind that swooped around corners to clutch at the skirts of those returning from the mockery of jus tice in the Place de la Concorde. The sun was going down behind a mass of gray smother, as if it sought to hide its face from the things it had seen that day. But the groups gathering in the Rue Poulet saw noth ing of the sun or its departure, so intent were they upon living over again, conversationally, the awful tragedy of the past hours.
