From the Author: "In the preface of The Companions of Jehu I told why that romance had been written; and those who have read it cannot fail to have seen where I borrowed from Nodier in the description of the execution, of which he was an ocular witness. In short, I borrowed by denouement from him." "Now The Whites and the Blues, being a continuation of The Companions of Jehu, my readers will not be astonished if I again borrow from Nodier for the beginning of my story." "After the great success of The Companions of Jehu, I was tormented with a desire to write a great romance, entitled The Whites and the Blues, taking my departure for this new book from Nodier's Episodes de la Revolution, as I did the motive for a former one from his Reaction Thermidorienne." "This time I wished not only to borrow a few pages from him, but to make him assume a role in the action of the drama." "With permission from his daughter, there was nothing to stop me; and as I had already outlined my plot, I set to work at once."
