She had told the Swami during their first meeting in Sarah Bernhardt book York that to gain a true setting for the play, she had visited museums for a whole month and carefully studied everything relating to India. Her performance, however, made them revise their estimate and write enthusiastic reviews. By this time she had eight servants, and she built her first house, an imposing mansion on rue Fortuny, not far from the Parc Monceau.

There they talked only Sarah Bernhardt book dresses and hats, and chattered about a hundred things that had nothing to do with art.

Unlike other famous salons in Europe in the second half of the nineteen century, the central attraction in her salon was not her guests but the hostess herself. Bernhardt told the jury she would instead recite the fable of the Two Pigeons by La Fontaine.
