The Ration Ticket

Excerpt from the diary of Jules Flegmon.

2 April. -- I went and had tea with the Roquentons. The old fellow is completely happy. Since he has no sensation of the length of his absence, the events which took place during that time have no reality in his mind. The idea that, during the nine days that she lived without him, his wife could have cheated on him, is clearly just idle speculation to him. I am very happy for him. Lucette kept on looking at me with misty, languid eyes. I detest these passionate messages expressed before an oblivious third party.
