The Adventures of M. D'Haricot

(1902)
A novel by

 
Excerpt:

On my window-sill lies a faded rose, a rose plucked from an English lane. As I write, my eyes fall upon the gardens, the forests, around my ancestral chateau, but the faint scent is an English perfume. To the land of that rose, the land that sheltered, befriended, amused me, I dedicate these memoirs of my sojourn there.
They are a record of incidents and impressions that sometimes have little connection one with another beyond the possession of one character in common - myself. I am that individual who with unsteady feet will tread the tight-rope, dance among the eggs, leap through the paper tambourine - in a word, play clown and hero to the melody of the castanets. I hold out my hat that you may drop in a son should you chance to be amused. To the serious I herewith bid adieu, for instruction, I fear, will be conspicuously absent, unless, indeed, my follies serve as a warning.
And now without further prologue I raise the curtain.
The first scene is a railway carriage swiftly travelling farther and farther from the sea that washes the dear shores of France. Look out of the window and behold the green fields, the heavy hedge-rows enclosing them so tightly, the trees, not in woods, but scattered everywhere as by a restless forester, the brick farms, the hop-fields, the moist, vaporous atmosphere of England.
