Only ten years old when his father took him to Prussia, Jean-Philippe felt out of his depth. He was used to the downtown life in their Paris apartment so vast open fields of Schönwald were dismaying to him. He was not impressed by Otto’s kindness when they arrived, and he did not recognise his humour. He was at first, annoyed to be sent from the room while the negotiations went on but he soon began to explore the estate, and to relax out of his father’s reach.

 

Jean soon felt nervous, so he sent Jean-Émile out to find Jean-Philippe and make him behave.

 

Jean-Émile at first took his task seriously, but quickly fell in with Jean-Philippe and Luise’s games and fun. The two boys played in a way they never had before. They discovered a friend in each other, which stayed with Jean-Philippe for the rest of his life.

 

The boys started to do what Luise wanted, which was against their upbringing. Somehow it seemed easier to go along with her than it was to cross her. Besides, she had ideas they would never have thought of.

 

The wild, free time they had, making the bridge, catching the bat, and running with the horse, dog, and falcon were a treasure to Jean-Philippe. It was a memory that sustained him.
