"A charming fellow, very amusing. He will be delighted to make your acquaintance."
"Well, all right; we will go after this piece is over, for I know the last piece."
"With pleasure; I will go and tell my friend."
"Go, then. Ah," added Prudence, as I was going, "there is the duke just coming into Marguerite's box."
I looked at him. A man of about seventy had sat down behind her, and was giving her a bag of sweets, into which she dipped at once, smiling. Then she held it out toward Prudence, with a gesture which seemed to say, "Will you have some?"
Marguerite drew back the bag, and, turning, began to talk with the duke.
