Chapter 72

Madame de Saint-Méran

  • That very night, the Marquis de Saint-Méran's wife becomes very, very sick.
  • The following morning, she knows she is going to die.
  • Also, in the middle of the night, she saw someone or something in white fiddle with the glass next to her bed.
  • On her deathbed, Madame de Saint-Méran is even more eager to get her granddaughter, Valentine, hitched. She wants Franz D'Epinay to come back and marry Valentine.
  • Valentine really wants to tell her grandmother that she's in love with someone else (Max Morrel), but she knows that her grandmother wouldn't approve of him as a husband (he's poor).
