IT WAS A THURSDAY EVENING, THE FIFTEENTH OF OCTOBER; AND ALTHOUGH ONLY HALF-PAST SIX O'CLOCK, IT HAD BEEN DARK FOR SOME TIME ALREADY. THE WEATHER WAS COLD, AND THE SKY WAS AS BLACK AS INK, WHILE THE WIND BLEW TEMPESTUOUSLY, AND THE RAIN FELL IN TORRENTS. THE SERVANTS AT THE HOTEL DE CHALUSSE, ONE OF THE MOST MAGNIFICENT MANSIONS IN THE RUE DE COURCELLES IN PARIS, WERE ASSEMBLED IN THE PORTER'S LODGE, A LITTLE BUILDING COMPRISING A COUPLE OF ROOMS STANDING ON THE RIGHT HAND SIDE OF THE GREAT GATEWAY. HERE, AS IN ALL LARGE MANSIONS, THE "CONCIERGE" OR PORTER, M. BOURIGEAU, WAS A PERSON OF IMMENSE IMPORTANCE, ALWAYS ABLE AND DISPOSED TO MAKE ANY ONE WHO WAS INCLINED TO DOUBT HIS AUTHORITY, FEEL IT IN CRUEL FASHION. AS COULD BE EASILY SEEN, HE HELD ALL THE OTHER SERVANTS IN HIS POWER. HE COULD LET THEM ABSENT THEMSELVES WITHOUT LEAVE, IF HE CHOSE, AND CONCEAL ALL RETURNS LATE AT NIGHT AFTER THE CLOSING OF PUBLIC BALLS AND WINE-SHOPS. THUS, IT IS NEEDLESS TO SAY THAT M. BOURIGEAU AND HIS WIFE WERE TREATED BY THEIR FELLOW-SERVANTS WITH THE MOST SERVILE ADULATION.
