The Count of Monte Cristo Chapter 50 Summary

The Morrel Family

  • The Count pays a visit to Max Morrel (Mr. Morrel Sr.'s son).
  • Max is currently staying at his sister, Julie's house. Remember that Julie and Emmanuel Herbault (one of Mr. Morrel Sr.'s former employees) are married.
  • This is a very happy, cheery household. The Count is really moved by how much love and joy he finds there.
  • Max and Julie discuss the anonymous benefactor who changed their father's life and who saved their family.
  • The Count says that he thinks he knows who the benefactor was – he believes the benefactor was a man by the name of Lord Wilmore from England.
  • Max says that his father believes that the unknown benefactor was that of Edmond Dantès, or perhaps the ghost or spirit of Edmond Dantès.
  • The Count's feathers are ruffled by this; he's a bit overcome with emotion.
  • He bows out of the happy scene quickly.
