“He spent the rest of the day in various other establishments, and was soon quite reconciled to the fact that the age of miracles he had lately experienced was now, finally, at an end, and that the preceding age had resumed. And so, with his heart set on that slow decline for which a drunkard is always available -and which no sober person can possibly understand! – Andreas took himself back to the banks and bridges of the Seine.”
