He knew the justice of this message, he knew that it only forbade what all humanity, hospitality, manhood, and compassion forbade to him.

But hitherto he had sought to persuade himself that the communications thus strangely forced on him arose perhaps from idle motives, a jest, it might be, of one of his old college friends, or at best the vain enthusiasm of some more credulous admirer.

As if people were not masters in their own house!" "That was perfectly absurd!" objected Maxence, who was determined to gain the good graces of the landlady.
