    One might suppose that the sudden change from the open woods and fields to the primness of a religious home would have been a great shock to her, and that with her disposition she might have broken out into wild ways that would have shocked the nuns. Afterward she had many lovers, but to no one did she so nearly become a true mate. For a time after her deception by Sandeau, she felt absolutely devoid of all emotions. But it took her half her life to reach a conclusion that could have prevented some of those miseries.

    Aurore Dudevant really believed that she was swayed by a pure and mystic passion. Therefore, Aurore read poems and childish stories; she gained a smattering of Latin, and she was devoted to music and the elements of natural science. Even the prince took notice of her; and to please him she wore the green uniform of a hussar. Coming to visit her at Nohant, he was revolted by the clownish husband with whom she lived. In return she refused any longer to attend his church.

    The existence which she now led was a curious one. Aurore Dupin became his wife inand he secured the control of her fortune. Lieutenant Dupin was on the staff of Prince Murat, and little Aurore, as she was called, at the age of three accompanied the army, as did her mother. Young Alfred was nervous, delicate, slightly epileptic, and it is certain that he was given to dissipation, which so far had affected his health only by making him hysterical. She is chaste. As soon as she had written Indiana and Valentine, George Sand had secured a place in the world of letters.
