RAMBAUD (M.), half-brother of Abbe Jouve, had a large business in the
Rue de Rambuteau, where he sold oil and other southern produce. Along
with Abbe Jouve he showed much kindness to Helene Grandjean after the
death of her husband, and was a constant visitor at her house. Later on,
the Abbe tried to arrange a marriage between Rambaud and Helene, but
at her request the decision was delayed. Meantime the love episode with
Doctor Deberle intervened, followed by the death of Jeanne. Two years
afterwards the marriage took place, Rambaud having previously sold his
Paris business and removed to Marseilles. Une Page d'Amour.
He retired from business and went to live at Marseilles. Having by his
marriage become a cousin of Madame Lisa Quenu, he was appointed a member
of the family council which nominally had charge of her daughter's
fortune. La Joie de Vivre.
Rambaud led a happy life with his wife, whom he adored. Le Docteur
