The compliment would be magnificent for her, but rather whimsical.Nevertheless, she is more masculine (using the word in a stalwart sense) than most of the Frenchmen you meet in Paris. I scarcely know a Parisian who is equipped with such a virile bearing. She is an active, brusque, business person, resolute, accustomed to giving and taking hard blows, and to deciding daily a score of important questions on the spur of the moment.

Among them is the Nouvelle Revue.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
