Eugenie Grandet

Author: Honore de Balzac


To Maria.

May your name, that of one whose portrait is the noblest ornament
of this work, lie on its opening pages like a branch of sacred
box, taken from an unknown tree, but sanctified by religion, and
kept ever fresh and green by pious hands to bless the house.

De Balzac.
