Newman is looking for a world different from the simple, harsh realities of 19th-century American business. -Monsieur has bought my picture, - said Mademoiselle Noemie. -When it's finished you'll carry it to him in a cab.- -A little, my daughter, a little?- said M. Nioche perplexed. -How much?- -Two thousand!- said Mademoiselle Noemie. -Don't make a fuss or he'll take back his word.- -Two thousand!- cried the old man, and he began to fumble for his snuff-box. He looked at Newman from head to foot; he looked at his daughter and then at the picture. -Take care you don't spoil it!- he cried almost sublimely.
