This chapter discusses George Sand's newly established publishing career. Personal conflict, however, seemed to come hand in hand with her professional commitment and success. Having stayed in Paris through Christmas and New Year's, Sand had once again disappointed young Maurice, who longed for his mother's return for the holidays. Back to back with a letter to her editor Francois Buloz, Sand wrote Maurice a note, accompanied by gifts of picture books, albums, and a little notebook. “Grow well, work well, play well,” she implored her young son, “and always love your dear old mother who loves nothing in the world more than you and your sister.” In the last line of her letter she told Maurice she was saving his first scribbling to show him when he was older—a small consolation for a little boy whose mother could not be with him during the holidays.
