The Colonel's Nieces. One of those homes was the abode of Madame Briquart, the respectable widow of a colonel from His Majesty's regiments, and her two adorable nieces Florentine and Julia

The Colonel's Nieces. CHAPTER ONE. One of those typical December rains, mixed with sleet and ice, was drizzling down upon the city of Paris. One of those homes was the abode of Madame Briquart, the respectable widow of a colonel from His Majesty's regiments, and her two adorable nieces Florentine and Julia. That night there were four people gathered around the fireplace, because Cousin George was reading out loud from one of the latest novels.

The maid had laid out a simple pearl-gray travel costume and knew therefore that her mistress was planning a trip. But Julia's plan for deception was as simple as it was effective.

But this did not disturb our two happy voyagers. Gordon had covered up Florentine under a fur blanket, and he had snuggled up very close to her under it. It was nice and warm, and the weather did not look so terrible to them at all. The short distance to Le Mans took two hours to cover and by the time the train had reached La Loupe, the station master announced that it was impossible for the train to go any further. The situation had become serious.

He consulted his books. It was not I, madame, who sold the necklace; I must simply have supplied the case. And so they went from jeweler to jeweler, looking for an necklace like the other one, consulting their memories, both sick with grief and anguish.
