Excerpt from Madame Tellier's Establishment, and Short Stories
Hey went there every evening about eleven I O'clock, just as they would go to the club.
Six Or eight Of them; always the same set, not fast men, but respectable tradesmen, and young men in government Or s... ome other employ, and they would drink their Chartreuse, and laugh with the girls, or else talk seriously with Madame Tellier, whom everybody respected, and then they would go home at twelve O'clock! The younger men would sometimes stay later.
It was a small, comfortable house painted yellow, at the corner Of a street behind Saint Etienne's Church, and from the windows one could see the docks full of ships being unloaded, the big salt marsh, and, rising beyond it, the Virgin's Hill with its Old gray chapel.
