CHANTEAU (M.), a cousin of M. Quenu, by whom he was nominated guardian
of his daughter Pauline Quenu. On the death of his father, he succeeded
to the timber business at Caen. Being an inactive man, unaspiring and
careful, he contented himself with putting his affairs on a safe basis,
and living on a moderate but sure profit. He married Eugenie de la
Vigniere, who was an ambitious woman and hoped to rouse his indolent
nature. Her schemes were, however, frustrated by the ill-health of her
husband, who suffered from gout to such a degree that he ultimately
sold his business to Devoine, and retired to Bonneville, where he had
a house. His sufferings from gout gradually became more and more severe
until he was a complete invalid. His ward Pauline Quenu showed him much
kindness, and the Abbe Horteur played draughts with him regularly. La
Joie de Vivre.

Until the end of his life he was taken care of by Pauline. Le Docteur
