Woman with a Cigarette

In 1830, Napolean’s daughter Emilee de Pellapra became a widow. Her mother Leroy advised her to meet Lenormana. Pellapra has written in her reminiscences: -

“According to the advice of my mother, I went to see her dressed in a maid servant’s clothes. I tried to look as ugly as possible. The old woman (Lenormana) looked crafty in her black velvet clothes and pockmarked face. She looked at me intently and then continued staring at me for some time. Then she spoke, You have tried your best to hide your identity, but you cannot hide from me what is written on your face. You are a rich woman. Though you seem to be unmarried, you have recently lost your husband. Your troubles are to end soon. You will remarry and that too before the spring. Do not try to know or search for you would be husband. At present, I see a large ocean between you. You shall meet him after two months.” I laughed at this incredible prophesy of the old woman. I even retold the story to every one in jest.”
