Often these lovely mornings I take a long walk with the dog before breakfast. I did put out my flags in honor of the day. Well, I am right up the hill, about a third of the way between Couilly and Meaux. I may now and then get an opportunity to talk again, and in a new background. I did not eat any supper. The procession led in both directions as far as we could see.

III June 20, When you come down here I shall tell you tales that will make Balzac and De Maupassant look tame. He stopped abruptly, halfway up the path, as I appeared, clicked his heels together, and made me his best bow, as he said:— "I am told, madame, that you are so gracious as to offer me a bed. I never admire some trailing, flowering thing there that, while I am admiring it, Amelie does not come out and pull it out of the ground, declaring it une salete and sure to poison the whole place if allowed to grow.
