HUBERTINE, wife of the preceding. At the age of sixteen she fell in
love with Hubert, the chasuble-maker, and as her mother, widow of a
magistrate, would not give her consent, they ran away and were married.
A year later she went to the deathbed of her mother, who, however,
disinherited her and gave her her curse. "So affected was she by the
terrible scene that her infant, born soon after, died." The Huberts had
no other children, and after twenty-four years they still mourned the
little one they had lost. She warmly approved of the adoption by her
husband and herself of the foundling child Angelique, whom she treated
with the greatest kindness. From the bitterness of her own experience
she had a horror of disobedience to parents, and when she found that the
consent of Monseigneur d'Hautecoeur could not be obtained to a marriage
between his son Felicien and Angelique, she did all she could to sever
the lovers. In this she was successful for a time, until the illness of
Angelique, and her miraculous recovery, induced the Bishop to give his
consent. Le Reve.
