Scenes de la vie de Province), he was promoted from being a provincial
judge to be president of his Court, and from being president to being
an examining judge in Paris.

kingdom; and had once, at the desire of the Duchesse de Maufrigneuse,
had an opportunity of forwarding the ends of a lady not less
influential than the Duchess, namely, the Marquise d'Espard, but he

His will was set forth fully--to destroy
The parricide, the scoundrel; and I am he.

the whole condition was otherwise such as to suggest true fever
rather than mental disorder.
On April 2 at about 3 P.M. every
trace of Wilcox's malady suddenly ceased. He sat upright in bed,
astonished to find himself at home and completely ignorant of
what had happened in dream or reality since the night of March
