WHITE LIES 

by CHARLES READE 

CHAPTER I. 

Towards the close of the last century the Baron de Beaurepaire lived
in the chateau of that name in Brittany.  His family was of
prodigious antiquity; seven successive barons had already flourished
on this spot when a younger son of the house accompanied his
neighbor the Duke of Normandy in his descent on England, and was
rewarded by a grant of English land, on which he dug a mote and
built a chateau, and called it Beaurepaire (the worthy Saxons turned
this into Borreper without delay).  Since that day more than twenty
gentlemen of the same lineage had held in turn the original chateau
and lands, and handed them down to their present lord.
