Serge Mouret, the younger son of Francois Mouret (see La Conquete de Plassans), was ordained to the priesthood and appointed Cure of Les Artaud, a squalid village in Provence, to whose degenerate inhabitants he ministered with small encouragement.

The Abbe fell in love with Albine, and, oblivious of his vows, broke them... (J. G. Patterson)"
