"Now about my reading, -- I have L?on Daudet?s ?Clemenceau?. The book is more interesting to me for the light it throws on L?on Daudet than on its subject ? a person (Clemenceau) that I find thoroughly repugnant. I suppose I ought to read Ren? Benjamin?s ?life?, as I heard him lecture on it at Bordeaux, but certainly I do not find the ?Tiger? a pleasant person in any way at all. But I find Daudet rather attractive, and indeed surprisingly reasonable in his criticism of people whose politics must have been the opposite of his own. The exception is Briand, but I cannot imagine any human being so disgusting as the person described by Daudet under that name ? it is impossible. Malvy and Caillaux also get it hot. But there are descriptions of the Goncourt group which I liked very much, and altogether I enjoyed the ?Frenchness? of the writer."
