The Memoirs of Sarah Barnum free pdf Excerpt from The Memoirs of Sarah Barnum A copy of Mario Colombier's book, "Sarah Barnum," which is an account of the adventures of Sarah Bernhardt in this country, arrived by the last French steamer, and was obtained by a publishing house in New York Wednesday morning. A force of translators, sixty-nine in number, was immediately set to work, and the volume, containing 350 pages, was finished at ten o'clock that night. The scandal of the day is the appearance of a book called 'Memoirs of Sarah Barnum." by Mlle. Marie Colombier, who writes with mud and ordure what purports to be the memoirs of Sarah Bernhardt, the authoress' ex-friend and directress during her tour in America. Marie Colombier begins with Sarah Bernhardt in the cradle, drags her whole life through the mire, and winds up a terrible soi-distant prophecy, where Sarah is represented dying and having cut open her head and face from striking the bedstead during an attack of delirium tremens. The first outcome of this abominable book was a duet yesterday morning between Octave Mirbeau, who wrote a scathing criticism of the book, and M. Paul Bonnetain, who wrote the preface to the memoirs. M. Bonnetain received two slight wounds. M. Bonnetain's seconds were Prince Karageorgevitch and the Marquis de Talleyrand. Tho duel begun In the morning by the men was continued in the afternoon by the women, and under the most unique circumstances. Mme. Sarah Bernhardt went in the morning to see M. Clement, Commissaire aux Delegations Judiciares, to find out whether the law did not give her the right to seize the book and stop its sale. Being told that she must first take legal proceedings and await the decision of the judges, Sarah Bernhardt went home again. Meanwhile Maurice Bernhardt, assuming the obligation of avenging his mother's honor, hastened to the apartment of M. Bonnetain, but finding that he had already gone out to fight a duel with M. Mirbeau, he changed his mind and went to No. 9 Rue de Thann, where Marie Colombier resides. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
