  • Mathlide's husband, Loisel, had come home from work one day with an invitation to the ball.

  • What's the matter?
  • I don't know exactly, but I think I could manage with four hundred francs.
  • Come, let us see, Mathlide. How much would it cost for a suitable gown?

  • Why don't you ask your friend Madame Forestier to lend you some jewels.
