EXCERPT:

LAMBLIN [goes to her, nearly in tears]. Oh, Mother, all is lost!

MADAME BAIL. No, no, you great child! I know everything, and I promise it will be all right.

LAMBLIN. No, no, I tell you. Marthe told me she wanted to leave me.

MADAME BAIL. Now, don’t carry on that way. I don’t want to see you cry.

LAMBLIN. But how can I be calm when my whole future is ruined?

MADAME BAIL. Nothing of the sort. Don’t you think I know my own daughter? She is too well educated, she has too much common sense, to leave you.

LAMBLIN [a little consoled]. You think so? Oh, if that were only true!

MADAME BAIL. But it is true! She’s crying now; her tears will ease her, and make her change her mind.

LAMBLIN. Yes, yes, let her cry, let her cry all she wants to!

MADAME BAIL. I tell you she is yours; she loves you.

LAMBLIN [brightening]. Is that true? [Madame Bail nods.] How happy I am! [A pause. His attitude changes.] But there’s one thing that troubles me.

MADAME BAIL. What?

LAMBLIN [embarrassed]. No, nothing.

MADAME BAIL. Confide in me. Tell me. [A pause.]
