pubOne.info thank you for your continued support and wish to present you this new edition. I was not rich - on the contrary; and I had been told the Pension Beaurepas was cheap. I had, moreover, been told that a boarding- house is a capital place for the study of human nature. I had a fancy for a literary career, and a friend of mine had said to me, «If you mean to write you ought to go and live in a boarding-house; there is no other such place to pick up material.» I had read something of this kind in a letter addressed by Stendhal to his sister: «I have a passionate desire to know human nature, and have a great mind to live in a boarding-house, where people cannot conceal their real characters.» I was an admirer of La Chartreuse de Parme, and it appeared to me that one could not do better than follow in the footsteps of its author. I remembered, too, the magnificent boarding-house in Balzac's Pere Goriot, - the «pension bourgeoise des deux sexes et autres,» kept by Madame Vauquer, nee De Conflans. Magnificent, I mean, as a piece of portraiture; the establishment, as an establishment, was certainly sordid enough, and I hoped for better things from the Pension Beaurepas.
