  • Oh, no, monsieur, he is very young.
  • "I know it, monsieur," replied Villefort, "and I am now going to examine him."
  • Yes, monsieur; I am on the point of marrying a young girl I have been attached to for three years.
  • To Monsieur Noirtier, Rue Coq-Heron, Paris.
  • "Monsieur," replied Dantes proudly, "it was only to summon assistance for you."
  • "Oh, monsieur," cried Dantes, "you have been rather a friend than a judge."
  • "Monsieur," said Louis XVIII.
  • Approach, and tell monsieur that it is possible to know beforehand all that he has not known.
  • "Do you not guess, monsieur?" asked Morrel.
  • "Monsieur," cried Dantes, "I can tell by your voice you are touched with pity; tell me at least to hope."

  • "Monsieur," returned the inspector, "providence has changed this gigantic plan you advocate so warmly."

  • Well, when Dantes was arrested, Monsieur Morrel hastened to obtain the particulars, and they were very sad.

  • "Monsieur Morrel!" exclaimed a voice on the stairs.
  • "Monsieur Bertuccio," said the count, "you have procured me windows looking on the Piazza del Popolo, as I ordered you yesterday."
  • Such as you see me I am, a sort of philosopher, and one day perhaps I shall go to Paris to rival Monsieur Appert, and the little man in the blue cloak.
  • —"Monsieur Morrel!"
  • Yes, monsieur.
  • Will you take charge of our invitation to Messieurs Cavalcanti?
  • Villefort opened a large register, then went to a table, from the table turned to his registers, and then, turning to Morrel,— "Are you quite sure you are not mistaken, monsieur?" said he, in the most natural tone in the world.
  • "You wear the uniform of the new French conquerors, monsieur," said he; "it is a handsome uniform."
  • "But you can sleep when you please, monsieur?" said Morrel.
  • "Thomson & French," said he; "do you know this house, monsieur?"
  • Yes, monsieur, a most excellent sister.
  • "Thanks, monsieur," returned Monte Cristo, "my steward has orders to take a box at each theatre."
  • "Precisely, monsieur," replied Monte Cristo with one of those smiles that a painter could never represent or a physiologist analyze.
  • Monsieur," continued the countess, advancing with the majesty of a queen, "I owe to you the life of my son, and for this I bless you.
  • It is very fortunate for my son, monsieur, that he found such a friend, and I thank God that things are thus.
  • "Go, then, and monsieur and I will strive our best to forget your absence," replied the countess, with the same tone of deep feeling.
  • "Monsieur," continued she, turning to Monte Cristo, "will you do us the honor of passing the rest of the day with us?"

  • "Monsieur Bertuccio," said the count, "did you never tell me that you had travelled in France?"
  • Yes, monsieur, one and twenty years ago; and since then we have not seen the poor marquis three times.
  • Shall I accompany you, monsieur?

  • Move, monsieur—move away, I entreat you; you are exactly in the spot!
  • Monsieur, I implore you do not stay there!
  • "But, monsieur, it is very natural," returned Bertuccio, "since it was in this house that my vengeance was accomplished."
  • Oh, it was not on him, monsieur; it was on another.
  • You are no longer in my service, Monsieur Bertuccio.
  • "Well, monsieur," said Bertuccio, "this man with this spotless reputation"— "Well?"
  • No, monsieur, and yet I recollect all things as clearly as if they had happened but then.
  • ’—’You are mistaken, monsieur,’ I replied; ’he has perished by the poniard.
  • In the meantime please to sit down, monsieur, and I will fetch you some refreshment.’
  • And now leave me, Monsieur Bertuccio, to walk alone here in the garden.
  • I am not condemning you for this, Monsieur Baptistin; but let your profits end here.
  • That was a noble example to follow, monsieur.
  • "Monsieur," replied the banker, drawing himself up with a haughty air, "the extent of my resources has never yet been questioned."
  • You have a right to be unjust to them, monsieur; they are your compatriots.
  • Oh, yes; I will listen, monsieur, for I am most curious to hear what explanation you will give.
  • You have been served as you desire, monsieur, for you were warned just now, and I now again warn you.

  • He was a merchant, monsieur, and had succeeded to the business of my poor father.
  • Monsieur,’ said Emmanuel, ’have the goodness to address yourself to M. Delaunay.
  • "We are very happy, monsieur," replied Julie; "but we have also known unhappiness, and few have ever undergone more bitter sufferings than ourselves."
  • "And do you know this gentleman, monsieur?" inquired Emmanuel.
  • "Oh, monsieur, this is cruel of you," said Julie, much affected; and the young lady’s eyes swam with tears.
  • Oh, it was a touching superstition, monsieur, and although I did not myself believe it, I would not for the world have destroyed my father’s faith.
  • "Did I hear rightly, monsieur," said Monte Cristo "that you served at Yanina?"
  • Monsieur Baptistin especially; I could never get such a man as that.
  • Monsieur Bertuccio, you understand that I intend entertaining company on Saturday at Auteuil.
  • Did you doubt it, my dear Monsieur Bartolomeo?
  • You attached great importance, then, to this postscript, my dear Monsieur Cavalcanti?
  • "Yes, I am known, so that"— "Proceed, my dear Monsieur Cavalcanti."
  • Well, monsieur, I am at your service.
  • And you really mean to say; monsieur, that my dear father is here?
  • "Monsieur Cavalcanti," said Andrea, "do you believe in fairy tales?"
  • Ma foi, monsieur, you have touched upon a tender chord.
  • Monsieur Franz is his friend, you know.
  • Monsieur de Morcerf has received a letter from Franz, announcing his immediate return.
  • Valentine rang the bell, and ordered the servant to tell Monsieur or Madame de Villefort that they were requested to come to M. Noirtier’s room.
  • "Oh, no, monsieur," said Villefort with a bitter smile; "it is only a loss of money which I have sustained—nothing worth mentioning, I assure you."
  • Do not alarm yourself, monsieur, we will duly respect your conscience.
  • You mean Monsieur Zaccone, I presume?
  • I was going to ask you if you had received any news of Monsieur Franz.
  • Now, you understand, my dear Monsieur Cavalcanti, that it is useless for you to tell people in France that you have been separated from your son for fifteen years.
  • Monsieur Bertuccio.
  • "Monsieur," said Albert with affectionate courtesy, "the count of Chateau-Renaud knew how much pleasure this introduction would give me; you are his friend, be ours also."
  • Then he added, "Monsieur, you may rest assured I shall perform my duty impartially, and that if he be innocent you shall not have appealed to me in vain; should he, however, be guilty, in this present epoch, impunity would furnish a dangerous example, and I must do my duty."
  • Go on, monsieur.
  • "You said before that you were obliged to leave us, monsieur," said Madame de Villefort, "and you were about to tell us why when your attention was called to some other subject."
  • No, monsieur, I swear to you, by my hopes of salvation, I will tell you all, for the Abbe Busoni himself only knew a part of my secret; but, I pray you, go away from that plane-tree.
  • I shall be most grateful, monsieur, if you will, at some future time, renew your offer, but I have been flattered with the hope of being introduced to the countess, and I will therefore wait.
  • Cocles opened the gate, and Baptistin, springing from the box, inquired whether Monsieur and Madame Herbault and Monsieur Maximilian Morrel would see his excellency the Count of Monte Cristo.
  • Cocles opened the gate, and Baptistin, springing from the box, inquired whether Monsieur and Madame Herbault and Monsieur Maximilian Morrel would see his excellency the Count of Monte Cristo.
  • "Then, count, I admire you," said Villefort, who, for the first time in this strange conversation, used the aristocratic form to the unknown personage, whom, until now, he had only called monsieur.
  • "I agree with you, monsieur," said the young man, turning pale, and, in spite of himself, trembling beneath the scrutinizing look of his companion, "such consequences would be extremely unpleasant."
  • "I was at the festival of my marriage, monsieur," said the young man, his voice slightly tremulous, so great was the contrast between that happy moment and the painful ceremony he was now undergoing; so great was the contrast between the sombre aspect of M. de Villefort and the radiant face of Mercedes.
  • This portion of the napkin was marked with half a baron’s crown, and the letter H." "Truly, truly," said Madame Danglars, "all my linen is marked thus; Monsieur de Nargonne was a baronet, and my name is Hermine.
  • "You are most welcome, monsieur," said the Count of Morcerf, saluting Monte Cristo with a smile, "and monsieur has rendered our house, in preserving its only heir, a service which insures him our eternal gratitude."
  • "You are most welcome, monsieur," said the Count of Morcerf, saluting Monte Cristo with a smile, "and monsieur has rendered our house, in preserving its only heir, a service which insures him our eternal gratitude."
  • But it is not so easy to forget, monsieur, that the very next day after your princely gift you saved the life of my dear friend, Madame de Villefort, which was endangered by the very animals your generosity restored to me.
  • "Oh, monsieur," said the concierge, "I shall not have much cause to regret him, for he came here but seldom; it is five years since he was here last, and he did well to sell the house, for it did not bring him in anything at all."
  • "How have I deviated from those principles, monsieur?" asked Monte Cristo, who could not help looking at Morrel with so much intensity, that two or three times the young man had been unable to sustain that clear and piercing glance.
  • "No, monsieur," returned the count; and he drew from his pocket a marvellous casket, formed out of a single emerald and closed by a golden lid which unscrewed and gave passage to a small greenish colored pellet about the size of a pea.
  • "Why, he was not altogether forsaken," continued Caderousse, "for Mercedes the Catalan and Monsieur Morrel were very kind to him; but somehow the poor old man had contracted a profound hatred for Fernand—the very person," added Caderousse with a bitter smile, "that you named just now as being one of Dantes’ faithful and attached friends."
  • "To what do you allude, monsieur?" said Danglars; as if he were trying in vain to guess at the possible meaning of the general’s words.
  • Monsieur, I told you that I considered it best to avoid all explanation.
  • "Monsieur Pailletin, if you please, my good woman," replied Andrea.
  • "Oh, monsieur," said Caderousse, "make one more attempt—try me once more!"
  • The porter knew him, and let him pass, only calling to him, "In his study, Monsieur Procureur—in his study!"
  • "Monsieur," she said, "I—I do not understand you."
  • Oh, mercy, mercy, monsieur!
  • "It is done, monsieur," she said with a rattling noise which seemed to tear her throat.
  • Jacopo will carry you to Leghorn, where Monsieur Noirtier awaits his granddaughter, whom he wishes to bless before you lead her to the altar.
  • "You will, I trust, excuse me, monsieur, for not calling you by your title when I first addressed you," he said, "but you are aware that we are living under a popular form of government, and that I am myself a representative of the liberties of the people."
  • ’—’Alas, no, monsieur,’ replied the count; ’all those who surrounded the vizier, or who knew me at his court, are either dead or gone away, I know not where.
  • "Thanks, monsieur," said Monte Cristo; "I shall content myself with being presented to your sister and her husband, if you will do me the honor to introduce me; but I cannot accept the offer of any one of these gentlemen, since my habitation is already prepared."
  • In the meanwhile, as the thing is difficult to find in France, and your abbe is not probably disposed to make a journey to Paris on my account, I must continue to use Monsieur Planche’s anti-spasmodics; and mint and Hoffman’s drops are among my favorite remedies.
  • ’—’Monsieur,’ I replied, ’it is not for myself that I entreat your interference—I should grieve for him or avenge him, but my poor brother had a wife, and were anything to happen to me, the poor creature would perish from want, for my brother’s pay alone kept her.
  • And now remember one thing, Monsieur Officer, that my grandfather commands you not to take any rash or ill-advised step which would be likely to compromise our happiness.
  • Besides, the provident law has deprived you of the power to disinherit me, at least entirely, as it has also of the power to compel me to marry Monsieur This or Monsieur That.
  • Besides, the provident law has deprived you of the power to disinherit me, at least entirely, as it has also of the power to compel me to marry Monsieur This or Monsieur That.
  • "And you, too," said he, "come, if you like, monsieur; you have a claim, being almost one of the family, and I will give as many rendezvous of that kind as I can find persons willing to accept them."
  • "Monsieur de Morcerf," replied the count, "your offer, far from surprising me, is precisely what I expected from you, and I accept it in the same spirit of hearty sincerity with which it is made;—nay, I will go still further, and say that I had previously made up my mind to ask a great favor at your hands."
  • It only remained to put it to the vote, when the president resumed: ’Gentlemen and you, monsieur,—you will not be displeased, I presume, to listen to one who calls himself a very important witness, and who has just presented himself.
  • Well, out of the five or six millions which form your real capital, you have just lost nearly two millions, which must, of course, in the same degree diminish your credit and fictitious fortune; to follow out my simile, your skin has been opened by bleeding, and this if repeated three or four times will cause death—so pay attention to it, my dear Monsieur Danglars.
  • But Danglars, instead of receiving this address in the favorable manner which Morcerf had expected, knit his brow, and without inviting the count, who was still standing, to take a seat, he said: "Monsieur, it will be necessary to reflect before I give you an answer."
  • …of his last cruise, with the death of Captain Leclere, and the receipt of a packet to be delivered by himself to the grand marshal; his interview with that personage, and his receiving, in place of the packet brought, a letter addressed to a Monsieur Noirtier—his arrival at Marseilles, and interview with his father—his affection for Mercedes, and their nuptual feast—his arrest and subsequent examination, his temporary detention at the Palais de Justice, and his final imprisonment in…
  • ’—’No, monsieur; but it appears that in prison he made the acquaintance of a rich Englishman, and as in prison he fell sick, and Dantes took the same care of him as if he had been his brother, the Englishman, when he was set free, gave this stone to Dantes, who, less fortunate, died, and, in his turn, left it to us, and charged the excellent abbe, who was here this morning, to deliver it.
  • Danglars felt his own not to be very well supplied just then, and gradually the man appeared less ugly, the bread less black, and the cheese more fresh, while those dreadful vulgar onions recalled to his mind certain sauces and side-dishes, which his cook prepared in a very superior manner whenever he said, "Monsieur Deniseau, let me have a nice little fricassee to-day."
  • A cloud passed over his brow as he said,— "No, monsieur, I do not know the writing, and yet it is tolerably plain.
  • I swear by my honor as a sailor, by my love for Mercedes, by the life of my father"— "Speak, monsieur," said Villefort.
  • "Monsieur," continued Dantes, "I know it is not in your power to release me; but you can plead for me—you can have me tried—and that is all I ask.
  • "Monsieur," continued the prisoner, "I am the Abbe Faria, born at Rome.
  • "Monsieur," said the baron to the duke, "all the servants of his majesty must approve of the latest intelligence which we have from the Island of Elba.
  • "Monsieur," returned Villefort, "I was then a royalist, because I believed the Bourbons not only the heirs to the throne, but the chosen of the nation.
  • "And your excellency has one, which was let to Prince Lobanieff; but I was obliged to pay a hundred"— "That will do—that will do, Monsieur Bertuccio; spare these gentlemen all such domestic arrangements.
  • Villefort looked disdainfully at Morrel, and replied,— "You are aware, monsieur, that a man may be estimable and trustworthy in private life, and the best seaman in the merchant service, and yet be, politically speaking, a great criminal.
  • "Oh, no, monsieur," replied Monte Cristo; "I do not thus betray my enjoyments to the vulgar.
  • "No, monsieur," returned Monte Cristo "upon the simple condition that they should respect myself and my friends.
  • "Undeceive yourself, monsieur," replied Monte Cristo; "I am quite sure, that, on the contrary, he will choose everything as I wish.
  • "Ah, monsieur," returned Albert, "I would never forgive you this mistake if you had seen another picture beside this.
  • "Oh," replied Morcerf, reddening slightly, "I have left the service, monsieur.
  • "My dear Monsieur Bertuccio," said Monte Cristo, laughing, "control yourself; we are not at Sartena or at Corte.
  • "Monsieur," said the steward, "it is fatality, I am sure.
  • " ’Monsieur,’ I said, ’my brother was assassinated yesterday in the streets of Nimes, I know not by whom, but it is your duty to find out.
  • "I see; to your domestics you are ’my lord,’ the journalists style you ’monsieur,’ while your constituents call you ’citizen.’
  • "Ah, monsieur," returned Julie, "it is treason in my brother to bring you thus, but he never has any regard for his poor sister.
  • And this is the reason, monsieur," continued Maximilian, "of my sister and brother-in-law having only 25,000 francs a year."
  • "Ah, in such a case one supposes"— "Sister, sister," said Maximilian, coming to the count’s aid, "monsieur is quite right.
  • "But, monsieur," said the Count of Morcerf, "for a man of your merit, Italy is not a country, and France opens her arms to receive you; respond to her call.
  • "Monsieur Baptistin," said the count, "you have been in my service one year, the time I generally give myself to judge of the merits or demerits of those about me.
  • "Monsieur," said Morrel, recovering his assurance as he proceeded, "do you recollect that a few days before the landing of his majesty the emperor, I came to intercede for a young man, the mate of my ship, who was accused of being concerned in correspondence with the Island of Elba?
  • "Monsieur," said the count to Albert, "I do not ask you to accompany me to my house, as I can only show you a habitation fitted up in a hurry, and I have, as you know, a reputation to keep up as regards not being taken by surprise.
  • "The address, ’To monsieur the Baron Danglars, banker, Rue de la Chaussee d’Antin.’
  • "Excuse me," said the implacable young girl, "Monsieur Albert claims and well deserves his share.
  • Well, am I to rush into his arms, and strain him to my heart, crying, ’My father, my father!’ like Monsieur Pixerecourt."
  • "Ah, here you are, monsieur," she said in her naturally calm voice; "but how pale you are!
  • "The punishment?" exclaimed Madame de Villefort, "the punishment, monsieur?
  • "I was saying to him only yesterday, ’You are imprudent, Monsieur Count; for when you go to Auteuil and take your servants the house is left unprotected.’
  • "Yes, it is very soon," said the doctor, looking at the corpse before him; "but that ought not to astonish you; Monsieur and Madame de Saint-Meran died as soon.
  • "Upon my word, monsieur," said Danglars with affected carelessness, "I attach no sort of value to such empty distinctions; but the fact is, I was made baron, and also chevalier of the Legion of Honor, in return for services rendered, but"— "But you have discarded your titles after the example set you by Messrs. de Montmorency and Lafayette?
  • "Monsieur Morrel," said Valentine to the young man, who was regarding her with the most intense interest, "my grandfather, M. Noirtier, had a thousand things to say, which he told me three days ago; and now, he has sent for you, that I may repeat them to you.
  • "Monsieur," returned Maximilian, raising the glass cover, and respectfully kissing the silken purse, "this has touched the hand of a man who saved my father from suicide, us from ruin, and our name from shame and disgrace,—a man by whose matchless benevolence we poor children, doomed to want and wretchedness, can at present hear every one envying our happy lot.
  • "It is true," said the baroness, with that strange simplicity sometimes met with among fashionable ladies, and of which plebeian intercourse can never entirely deprive them,—"it is very true that had not the Morcerfs hesitated, my daughter would have married Monsieur Albert.
  • "Monsieur," replied the count, with a chilling air, "I am very happy to have been the means of preserving a son to his mother, for they say that the sentiment of maternity is the most holy of all; and the good fortune which occurred to me, monsieur, might have enabled you to dispense with a duty which, in its discharge, confers an undoubtedly great honor; for I am aware that M. de Villefort is not usually lavish of the favor which he now bestows on me,—a favor which, however estimable,…
