Book Introduction: They both styled themselves Madame, but only the younger of the old ladies had been married. Madame Valiere was still a demoiselle, but as she drew towards sixty it had seemed more convenable to possess a mature label. Certainly Madame Depine had no visible matrimonial advantages over her fellow-lodger at the Hotel des Tourterelles, though in the symmetrical cemetery of Montparnasse (S ection 22) wreaths of glass beads testified to a copious domesticity in the far past, and a newspaper picture of a chasseur d Afrique pinned over her bed recalled though only the uniform was the dead soldiers the son she had contributed to France scolonial empire. Practically it was two old maids or two lone widows whose boots turned pointed toes towards each other in the dark cranny of the rambling, fusty corridor of the sky-floor. Madame Depine was round, and grew dumpier with age; Madame Valiere was long, and grew slimmer. Otherwise their lives ran parallel.(Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)About the Publisher Forgotten Books is a publisher of historical writings, such as: Philosophy, Classics, Science, Religion, History, Folklore and Mythology.Forgotten Books' Classic Reprint Series utilizes the latest technology to regenerate facsimiles of historically important writings.
