BACHELARD (NARCISSE), a commission agent, whose keen business instincts
were not blunted by his intemperate habits. He was a brother of Madame
Josserand, and had at one time promised to give a dowry to her daughter
Berthe; this promise he was unwilling to implement, and when spoken to
on the subject usually feigned intoxication; eventually he suggested
the somewhat dishonest plan by which Berthe's intended husband was
hoodwinked into the belief that the dowry would be duly forthcoming. His
protegee, Fifi, having compromised herself with Gueulin, his nephew,
he insisted on their marriage, and presented the girl with a dowry.
Pot-Bouille.
