BAUDU (GENEVIEVE), daughter of Baudu, the draper. She was engaged for a
number of years to Colomban, her father's shopman, but in consequence of
the state of trade the marriage was put off from time to time. Genevieve
ultimately learned that her fiance had become infatuated with Clara
Prunaire, one of the shop-girls in "The Ladies' Paradise." Her health,
never good, suffered greatly, and soon after Colomban's disappearance
she died. Au Bonheur des Dames.
