This chapter focuses on the correspondence between Eugène and Adèle Galles during Eugène’s deployment in Spain. The marriage of Eugène and Adèle bore all the fruits imaginable for those of their milieu in the years that followed their first encounters with the trials and joys of “establishment.” Adèle returned to Vannes in 1821 to live once again in the Galles’s ancestral home. This chapter first discusses three weddings involving the Galles and Jollivet families: between Joséphine Le Monnier and Jean-Marie Galles, between Yves Jollivet and Zuma Kerviche, and between Louise Jollivet and Augustin Le Montagner. It then examines the crisis that hit the Galles-Jollivet household as a result of a “fever” of “epidemic” proportions in Vannes. It also considers the military and domestic affairs of the Galles and Jollivets, including the birth of Eugène and Adèle’s new son and René Jollivet’s arrival in Vannes.
