Bishop Myriel's annual stipend = 15,000 francs = 450,000 F
(1,500 francs for his subsistence with the two old women = 45,000 F)

That's good to know about the maternity things...I was wondering about that as I read Chapter 2 a couple of minutes ago.
Bishop fanfiction. Hm. True, actually...you would think more people would care about him, since he's basically responsible for the entire plot... I read one once which actually had Mme Magloire as the main character. Now there's one you don't see every day.

I've heard someone say that too.
Question: Why do you think Hugo gave such a short physical description of the Bishop? He gives long descriptions of all the other characters, but doesn't devote more than a few sentences to Myriel. Is it to emphasize how magnificent his soul was, or what?
