Letters of Two Brides by Honore de Balzac
Chapter XXXIV: MME. DE MACUMER TO THE VICOMTESSE DE L'ESTORADE

April 1826.

The name on this address will tell you, dear, that my petition has been granted. Your father-in-law is now Comte de l'Estorade. I would not leave Paris till I had obtained the gratification of your wishes, and I am writing in the presence of the Keeper of the Seals, who has come to tell me that the patent is signed.

Good-bye for a short time!
