This chapter discusses Aurore's two-week visit to Paris, when she visited family and friends and attended the theater. After being away for two years, she found the capital cold and impersonal. She missed Nohant and longed for Maurice. She had looked forward to seeing her mother and was disappointed that Sophie was away visiting in Charleville. Aurore wrote to her mother to complain about her latest problems: a persistent cough, sleeplessness, and inflammation of her face. After the long winter season, Maurice's fourth birthday was celebrated in June with regional fanfare. Letters flew between Nohant and Paris during this period, with Aurore requesting her purveyor, Louis-Nicolas Caron, and others to send news and goods from the capital.

Keywords:   theater, cold, impersonal, Nohant, Maurice, mother, Charleville, Louis-Nicolas Caron
