Balzac, Honoré de: Madame Firmiani, v1 19 Aug 2007.

Honoré de Balzac
Madame Firmiani
Translated by Katharine Prescott Wormeley

Another short story. This opens with varying descriptions of the eponymous heroine, who is a woman in high society. An uncle from the provinces comes to Paris, determined to find out why his nephew, Octave de Camps, seems to have frittered away his fortune on Mme Firmiani.

I have added a picture, restored accents and italics and reformatted.
