Overview

Excerpt from A Son of the Immortals

She was rather late that morning. Lest that precious hour Of white light should be lost, she sped rapidly across the place, down the boulevard, and along the busy Quai des Grands Augustins. On the Pont Neuf she glanced up at another statuesque acquaintance, this time a kingly personage on horse back. She could never quite dispel the notion that Henri Quatre was ready to flirt with her. The roguish twinkle in his bronze 'eye was very taking, and there were not many men in Paris who could look at her in that way and win a smile in return. To be sure, it was no new thing for a Vernon to be well disposed toward Henry of Navarre; but that is ancient history, and our pretty J oan; blithely unconscious, was hurrying that morning to take an active part in redrafting the Berlin treaty.

At the corner Of the bridge, where it joins the Quai du Louvre, she met a young man. Each pretended that the meeting was accidental, though, after the first glance, the best-natured recording angel ever commissioned from Paradise would have refused to believe either of them.
