I was smoking restlessly in the conservatory of the hotel when a bellboy brought me the card of Captain le Vicmte de Barsac.
It was astonishing to see how tirelessly De Barsac held those opera-glasses, which must have weighed at least an ounce.
So I bought a cooked chicken and a bottle of Barsac, and mounting to the apartment of the invalid, I made him eat and drink.
Per favour of the Barsac, however, Florence ventured to try what a little raillery might do.
So, with my daughters in the centre, and Captain de Barsac and myself thrown out in strong flanking parties, we began our march.
There are other good crops made in the same parishes of Sauterne, Prignac, and Barsac; but none as good as these.
