LACHESNAYE (DE), judge at the Rouen Court of appeal, was the husband
of Berthe Grandmorin, whom he somewhat resembled in character. He was a
little man, dry and yellow, who had been a judge at the Court of
Appeal from the age of thirty-six; he had been decorated, thanks to the
influence of his father-in-law, and to the services which his father had
rendered on the High Commissions at the time of the _Coup d'Etat_. He
was disliked by Denizet, the examining magistrate, in whose eyes he
represented the class of judicial functionary who attained position
by wealth and influence. Lachesnaye was incensed at the will of his
father-in-law, Grandmorin, who left fully half of his fortune to women
of all classes, most of them unknown to his family. La Bete Humaine.
