Tartarin of Tarascon has remained a never-to-be-forgotten date in my life; although quite ten or a dozen years ago, I remember it better than yesterday.

A pretty little villa in the local style, with a front garden and a balcony behind, the walls glaringly white and the Venetians very green; and always about the doorsteps a brood of little Savoyard shoeblackguards playing hop-scotch, or dozing in the broad sunshine with their heads pillowed on their boxes.
