Not illustrated. 1901 edition. Excerpt: ...evening, should try to catch some of these artless colloquialisms--they have no doubt been borrowed from the lower classes. Catherine. (aside to Lefebvre, annoyed and articulating indistinctly) D'ye hear that? Oh! Lefebvre. (coining down) Be calm now! Caroline. (still falsely amiable) They are seldom heard, I believe, outside of the fish market and such places. Catherine. (trembling somewhat, and with dilated nostrils, comes down, followed by Lefebvre) She'd better stop now, or something's going to drop. Caroline. (still in the same tone) By the way, Duchess, was it not in that neighborhood, Duchess, --perhaps you have not heard this interesting story, ladies, --was it not somewhere near the fish market that on the night of the tenth of August you saved the life of Monsieur de Neip Esrg by hiding him in your bed?

Catherine. Yes, your Majesty, (all the ladies are standing.
