    Excerpt from At the Casa Napoleon

    In 1878 he had married Catharine Ann Drinker, who shared to the full his devotion to art and letters. While they were living at Saint Remy de Provence their friend ship with F élix Gras brought them an Opportunity of reading the manuscript of his Reds of the Midi. It was through their appreciation that the work of Gras was brought to the attention of an American editor and his books, admirably rendered into English by Mrs. Janvier, were made known to the English-speaking world. Mr. Janvier wrote of the Midi with an understanding and an enjoyment which, perhaps, no English-speaking writer has equalled. It was this same delightfully human zest that was felt in his genius for friendship and also in the quaint seriousness of his devotion to the gourmet's high est arts.

    His life in the Midi yielded various magazine articles and stories, all characterized by intimate appreciation. Among the books of this time were An Embassy to Prov ence and The Christmas Kalends of Provence. He spent three years (from 1894 to 1897) in his beloved Midi.

    From 1897 to 1900 he lived for most of the time in England, deeply interested always in old London. Later his home was in New York, with the exception of frequent visits abroad. The attraction which the past of New York held for him found expression in, his book entitled, In Old New York, published in 1894.
