"Ah! Very well!" muttered Raittolbe. "Then I shall contrive to keep my own head!"

Then he emptied a flagon of sauterne into an ornately chased drinking-cup. They considered one another for a moment. To prevent himself from losing his temper, Raittolbe was compelled to acknowledge that Mademoiselle de Vénérande resembled Diana the huntress in her most beautiful of aspects.
