Excerpt: I. A CLERK IN ORDERS. The white walls of the Chateau of Deux?manoirs, with its precincts, composed, before its dismantling at the Revolution, the one prominent object which towards the southwest broke the pleasant level of La Beauce, the great corn?land of central France. Abode in those days of the family of Latour, nesting there century after century, it recorded significantly the effectiveness of their brotherly union, less by way of invasion of the rights of others than by the improvement of all gentler sentiments within. From the sumptuous monuments of their last resting?place, backwards to every object which had encircled them in that warmer and more lightsome home it was visible they had cared for so much, even in some peculiarities of the very ground?plan of the house itself everywhere was the token of their anxious estimate of all those incidents of man?s pathway through the world which knit the wayfarers thereon most closely together.
