I want to invite you to go have a drink with me at the bar for a heated discussion about your daughter Lucie. I know you have basically just got out of prison and you are a little crazy, but you seem like a cool guy
You think I'm crazy?
Father she is just ring to spend some time with you. I approve.
Father, please try to keep an open mind. You never know what kind of relationship you will be able to form until you give him a chance. #LucieManette
I know a man that has recently got out of prison, yet he does not want to show his true face for he has escaped. Do not tell anyone that I have said this. I have just found out myself. I used to love him and he now calls himself The Count of Monte Cristo, for he owns it. Tell me if you see him. @CountOfMonteCristoGang
Sorry Carton, but I have already promised my full support to Charles Darnay.
Thank you Dr. Manette it is such an honor to have your support and to be in the presence of your lovely daughter.
Oh please! I've heard that you are just dying for an excuse to have a drink no matter the reason or who it is with. People say that you would drink with yourself but you do not want to look like a loner. As for me, I have some unfinished business to take care of.
I have no recollection of going to jail. What are you talking about? Also there will be no conversation of my beautiful daughter. You are not worthy of taking her delicate hand. #Dr.Manette
I can feel the fires of revolution in my former country, France. I fear for its future. #Dr.Mannete
@Jarvis Lorry, I do also feel for France's future because the British goverment will not send help to teh people because our goverment just does not like them
I agree. There is talk of revolution all over the great country of France. I was just imprisoned in the Chateau d'If because I was suspected of treason and supporting the Bonapartists. This is wrong and we need to put the fire out
The Count of Monte Cristo

Yes, I myself was imprisoned in France! Where is Chateau d'If? I was held in the Bastille, which was in Paris. #Dr.Mannete
I do not know exactly know where the Chateau d'If is, for when I sailed to it I was in a small rowboat with two militiamen that would not say anything, for it was their job to do so. All I know is that the Chateau d'If is on a large, menacing island, about the size of what the U.S. is naming "Alcatraz."
What is this revolution you speak of? I laugh in the face of death dirty gutter rats! I fear nothing!
#rich #amazing #slightlyarrogant #marquis
You were in jail as well? Well, you should find yourself lucky you have no recollection on that time, as it truly was a horrific time. Although, much was done in those years by me.
# Abbe Faria
Are you talking about your book, the rope and tools, the candle, and the pens that I found in your cell? It was a pity you died, you could have given me some of that "money" Hahaha!
Dr. Manette, why would you accept this fool's invitation? He wants your daughter, but is reckless, drunken fool and is unfitting for her. Besides, Lucie is most obviously in love with me.
Mr. Darnay, that is out of line. I believe my daughter will make the best choice possible, and I will support her through it all. Woe be it unto the man who makes my daughter suffer. Even if she does marry the drunken fool, I will still love her.
None of the ruffians who come asking for Ladybird's hand are fit to marry her!
I would gladly die in your "Ladybird's" stead! I love her with all my heart and soul.
Dr. Manette, my name is The Count of Monte Cristo. I have been informed that you were wrongfully imprisoned during the first French Revolution. I went through a similar situation, as I was plotted against by my shipmates who were jealous of the position I was about to assume, and my lover. I was imprisioned in the Chateau D'if for 14 years. I am now plotting revenge by ruining the lives of those who sentenced me, and I encourage you to do the same. #the count of monte cristo
Do you really think that seeking revenge is a wise thing to do. You should make better use of you time while you still have it a cherish these last years that you have. Do not risk the possibility of being imprisoned for getting revenge on people for something that happened many years ago.
As a man who has just lost his loving daughter and has recently found her, I truly believe that any man who is devoted and who makes my dear Lucie positively jubilant will be her destined husband.
I have helped you come back to reality after your long imprisonment. Can still be a little crazy but mostly back.
Father, thank you for having that insightful talk with me! I was definitely having some cold feet about the wedding. I love you. I have never been more happy. I have you and Charles.
Think about this. You can't give up your daughter. She is your prize. You once went through dark times and lost that prize. Please listen, shall you not cave and share your love of your precious daughter, may all times be lavish and beautiful from here on.
@DrM hey man, heard you got out of the slammer a couple years ago. well anyway, i think i want to marry your daughter, but only if it doesn not affect your relationship with her. I will stop by sometime and maybe we can discuss our topic more. #iamchuckdarnay
How are you doing after your recent breakdown? I hope you have finally seen how to feel happy and not revert to such an akward hobby. Try to stay happy, as I need to return to my work. @Dr._Manette #Mr._Lorry
My dear friend, I am doing well and fine. I will hope that there are no more breakdowns. Even though I am a little sad about losing my workbench, it is necessary. I am very happy as I have my daughter and you and Miss Pross's support. #Doctor Manette
Oh, Father I think that maybe I should not marry anyone for, my heart is only for you and your health now that I have found you! I could never give my heart to anyone else.
But I have promised you away and you have been fine, and now you have left, Mr. Darnay is yours just as you are his.
I am expecting to hear of Charles Darnay's secret identity at the time of his marriage.
Doctor Manette, the time will come where I will reveal my true identity for fear that you and Lucy will not be too shocked before the wedding. I love your daughter dearly, and will care for you as my father.#Charles Darnay
Your daughter is too beautiful for me and I don't think you will ever allow her to love me or the opposite. :(
Certainly not the opposite. In your quest to seek favor, your tounge seems to have slipped. I will let my daughter choose whom she wishes. I will not stand in her way. However, I will never forgive you were you to hate her.
Dr. Manette. I am indeed in love with your daughter, I, if you approve of my love for her, I shall care for her, treat her with respect, and keep her in safety. Lucie is a great woman, please do not deny my love for her Dr. Manette. I greatly thank you for raising this great daughter. I thank you.
- Mr. Charles Darnay
#charlesdarnay #lukebede #letter
How do you feel about Carton, Stryver, and Darnay chasing after your daughter?
I feel like she is above all of that rabble trying to take her hand, but I feel like she will make the best decision possible in any case.
@ Jarvis Lorry
I'm afraid that I may have suspected such. My dear Lucie has a clear head, yet anyone might become overwhelmed by so many suitors. But perhaps, at this point, it has become less of who she loves most, and more of who she loved first.
Your daughter is too beautiful for me and I don't think you will ever allow her to love me or the opposite.
I believe she will marry who she sees fit. Don't be to doubtful of yourself.
I would like to have the hand of your most exquisite daughter, in marrige. We would be perfect for each other, and I will take care of her and protect her always.
My dear Mr. Manette, I wish to congratulate you on your daughter's recent engagement. I was present at the trial of your new son-in-law when he was charged with treason that short year ago that now feels like an eternity. I have heard of your situation as to mental state and recollection to life, and would am now curious of how this situation reflects upon your view of God. I know that as for me, my wife has prayed to turn him against me and many atimes he has struck me down due to her prayers. I know not what you think of this subject, but since you have a rather unique perspective, would you mind sharing your views?
As I have talked to your daughter in some of our meetings, I think she is not mentally prepared because of the sudden apperance of you. Also I have seen, there have been fine men chasing her and I think she is too busy to think about her love yet. Although Charles Darnay seems devoted to her.
I hope you are doing well, Dr. Manette. After your recent relapse, I had thought I should check up on you. I know how hard that relapse must have been for you. Be assured I will always support you and your daughter no matter what the circumstance is. I was there for you during your imprisonment and I will be there for you again.
Dr. Mannette I wiould very much like to marry you fine daughter. I know how close you are to her though and I am sorry if i am impeding in yours and hers relationship. So please forgive me.
# Charles Darnay
Charles, if you truly love Lucie, you have my blessing. She is my pride and joy. I hope you make her very happy. #Dr. Manette @Charles
My dear old friend, I am glad to see you as your old self again, and congradulate you on your daughter's marriage. However, let me warn you, I think it is best to keep your daughter away from Carton, he has a bad habit of being a drunkard. #Jarvis Lorry
I am insulted! I am a fine young man and I look forward to meeting Dr Mannette to discuss Lucy.
Hello dear Doctor Manette. I trust you are feeling well today. Did you and Lucie scale the stairs early this morning? I hope not. When do you think this rebellion will turn to full scale war? I have a dreadful feeling about the end of this game. Who else will face the fate of the blood thirtsy guillotine once all the opposing pieces are captured?
I fear for my son-in-law, Charles Darnay. He obviously has ties to the country and may want to visit it again to ensure the well-being of his estate. If he is captured, he will certainly be killed by a mob.
Ties to France? I see. Perhaps he has been registered? Possibly a spy? Maybe he will be killed, maybe not, it all depends on the nobles. But now with the Marquis dead, things will go more smooth and orderly.
My dear Lucie, I am so jubilant that you and Charles have found pure happiness in each other. You have blessed me with a lovely grandaughter, who keeps me company when ever I feel sullen. Your gallant husband brings joy to me, knowing that you are cared for by him in every way possible. My heart sings for your happiness that always fills the room.
My constant show making might possibly be symbolism. Just like the disturbed and upset french wish to build a new country, I wish to build new shoes when I am upset. #DrManette
But you must understand the concern I have that the recent relapse you experienced could be caused by this constant reminder of your past.
My dear father-in-law, I hope that you are not distressed by my sudden absence. I plead with you to not fall into your former state for the sake of our mutual beloved. I know that my departure will cause great grief to her, and ask that you might be there for her as she has always been for you. I feel that you likely understand my purposes and will respect my decision, seeing as you know the importance of being staying loyal to you and vice versa, since if your daughter had not stayed loyal you yourself would not have been fully recalled. I pray that we might meet again, and I will ask of you yet again, please be there for your daughter.
When I was first thrust into prison, I was unsure of how to occupy my time. But shoemaking came naturally to me. I suppose my skilled hands from years of surgeries made it obvious. And why do I keep my shoemaking table and tools? I view it as simply a lost hobby, worthless yet still an inerasable part of me.
Oh Dr. Manette, I thought better of you. Can you not see that Darnay is merely trying to use and abuse you, in your post-traumatic state, so he can take advantage of Lucie? Has he not told you his secret, and do you not feel threatened. If you look for one with true feelings for Lucie, you need look no further. I beg you to reconsider this marriage before it is too late.
Dear Dr. Manette,
When you returned from your tiring journey, I could see a face with enlightened eyes, a calm and strong look, and something I had never seen from you before. Playing a key part in Darnay's life seems to be positively influencing you.
Dr. Manette, you have failed to help me in my time of need. It is because of this that I have imprisoned you, and that I will despise you until the end of your days.
I am happy I was able to help my son-in-law for my daughter, although I am still concerned for his situation. He doesn't seem to be out of this mess just yet.
I am truly indebted to you Manette. You have been so supportive of your daughter and I and I find that you have been a great father-in-law
I hope that I can offer my son-in-law some assistance in Paris, seeing as I was a former prisoner of the Bastille. I hope to spare his life, for I feel Lucie would be lost without him.
I hope that my son-in-law's trial tomorrow goes well. I pray that my efforts with everyone at La Force were not a waste and that all of my newfound supporters show as much kindness to Charles as they did to me.
I have never been so scared in my life. Revolutionists came to my house in the afternoon and took Charles away. The soldiers told me that Defarge, Madame Defarge, and one other individual accused Darnay. I don't understand what he is being accused for and who the other individual is?
Father, is it true that you are the other individual that accused Darnay. I can not believe this. You must have been framed by Madam Defarge. That woman is up to no good.
I have assured my son-in-law's safety throughout his imprisonment. He shall not be beheaded thanks to me! My efforts have proven to be worth it. I am now the physician at the prison and have befriended the man in charge of the prisoners. Charles Darnay shall live! (Despite his heritage)
Father, I need you to know that I will always love you as much as I do now. Although I am giving my heart to Charles, there will never be a spot in my heart that will not devote itself to you. Even when I am away, keep me in mind and know that you have a new life now. Do not fear that you will revert back to your old state. Instead, spend time thinking of me and others that care about you, and you will never again forget who we are.
Dr Manette, these past 15 months were nothing but anguish and torture for me to be stuck away in prison amongst other innocent men caught up in the chaos of the revolution. You succeeded in making my heart content when I got a simple glimpse of my precious Lucie on rare occasions. Without your reputation as a former prisoner of the Bastille, my release may not have been so promising. And since my return, I still can not help be question whether this is final. Every move is so risky nowadays. I can be certain of nothing.
Darnay, I should be the one who should thank you. For you have brought happiness to my daughter. I could not deal with even one day with out seeing happiness in her life. She has been a part in reconstructing my life after returning to England. She has been a huge part in my life and deserves happiness.
Everyone, you musn't worry about Charles' recent release being only a glimpse one. I have saved him. Nothing can happen to him because I have saved him. I am no longer a shoemaker, I am not one hundred and five north tower. I am more grateful than ever of what I have in my life, a wife, a grandchild, and a son-in-law whom I have assuredly saved.
Dr. Manette, you cannot possibly believe that you can keep an emmigrant's head on forever. You play the game well against puppets. Your ploy in the first summoning proves this. But how well do you play against those pulling the strings?
@citizendefarge I will play those people very well. I will do this by having Jerry Cruncher our resident Grave digger to dig up dirt on the people that are pulling everyone's strings. Once I have that information I will Black mail them so they do not pull my strings and pull the strings of people who deserve their string to be pulled. #Dr. Manette
Dr. Manette, my dear father, I miss you so, living with you, and all the great times we had. I, though am happily married, my young son passed away, tragic. Yet, my darling little girl Lucie is fine, and well. Charles is a great man, and prison is not where he belongs. So, we went through a rough time, but that will shortly be over. I love you father. Best Wishes. -Lucie
You have told me of your power, Dr. Manette. If you do believe in this power as I believe in it, you should use it to free Darnay from his horrible prison.
I want to thank you, Dr. Manette, for giving me not only your permission to marry you daughter, but also your full support and blessing. I promise to be kind to your lovely daughter and treat her with the most respect.
I cannot believe that you did not help me, of all people, and I wished that you would help me. Now this is why you were imprisoned, I will never forgive you. Oh, and that Charles Darnay, he does not deserve to be my nephew, for he also has disobeyed me.
To Dr. Manette
Dr. Manette, I will do my best to help Charles Darnay get out of prison and court. I know I have messed up in my life, but I am trying to turn in around. It is very difficult to have many people disappointed with me, but I know I can help, and that is exactly what I will do.
I am sorry to say that Charles Darnay is dead. For those who were at the trial I want you to know that I did not press charges against my dear son-in-law. I did my best to help the dear man but Madame Defarge's power was greater than mine.
Father, I never knew that you had so much power wiht the French! I still cannot believe you were able to get Charles out of La Force.
Yes, Lucy. Being one of the people freed from the tyranny has its benefits. @Lucy_Manette #Dr._Manette
Dear father-in-law, I am extremely grateful for my release! It is all thanks to you! But now that I am back in jail yet again, I fear that this time we will not be so lucky. These French Revolutionists despise me because of my family's numerous actions.
My dear Dr. Manette,
Your daughter, Lucie,is a marvel. I am deeply in love with her. She has sent me out of my drunken spiral towards death. I am still recovering This golden-haired doll of yours has stolen my heart which I do not intend to retrieve. #Sydney Carton
Father, be safe out there. Try to release poor Charles! He needs you. You are well respected here in France because you have already been in jail. Here my deepest plead!
Dear "Diary?", I feel so great helping out my son-in-law after that whole brouhaha. I was definitely not going to be related to some prisoner, and I surely did not want to see Lucie darling sad. I hope everyone knows my capabilities because I will make even riskier actions if I need to, anything for my daughter!
Thank you for coming to my rescue! I was locked in a cell FOR NO REASON AT ALL! Thank you for coming through to me. After all, you are the only one that knows my secret identity. I understand how you felt in a cell. It was uncomfortable the moment i stepped foot into that place.
I sincerely would like to deliver my utmost gratitude to you. Your popularity, influence, and persuasiveness all contributed heavily to my acquittal. I would, without a shadow of a doubt, have been guillotined if your timely arrival had not occurred. Although I disliked Monseigneur and the rest of the aristocrats, I do not believe in this violent method of killing them.
Father, I did not realize that you had so much influence within the realm of France. It is quite obvious to me that you and your daughter are much adored by these revolutionaries. I want to express my sincerest gratitude in your help in my acquittal. It is my honor to be part of the Manette family.
Thank you so much for assisting me while I was in mental disrepair. And thank you for giving your own life for such a noble cause. There is no way I will ever be able to fully repay you.
father if only you would consider him he could be just right for me
Oh dearest father, thank you for freeing my Charles from La Force! You are my hero!
I may have failed at saving Charles but I will not fail at making shoes, I must finish these shoes...
Hard times have fallen and I have managed to help some, but not all. I have helped many, but I feel as if I haven't been able to improve myself.
I am overjoyed to have helped my son-in-law get acquitted. If it had not been for my position as a former prisoner at the Bastille, I might not have succeeded. I also feel that if I had not have saved Lucie's dear husband, I would have entered another great relapse.
I have so much to thank you for. First for promising me your lovely daughter Lucie. There is no better prize in the world! Also, sending my word to Lucie and talking to me every day. You truly are like a father for me! Thank You
I am so glad to have been able to acquitt my son-in-law, as if I can even really think of him as one now, of his charges. I love him as a son, and I love my dear Lucie more than anything. I know by helping him to stay away from all the revolutionary business I am in, he can continue to treat her as I want him to. Moreover, I see everyone is happy to hear of his acquittal. Hopefully nothing like this happens again.
Father, I only wish you would listen. I have been trying so desperately to get you to understand... Making shoes constantly is not going to help you. I am your daughter and you need to listen. I will help you, you just need to trust me.
I do not feel of help! You wandered off with that Darnay, and I was taken up with a small breakdown. Although it is fine now, but if it is your way, it is also mine! I'm your father! You should go by my ways! Don't set up your own rules! You are none of authority yet!
Thank you for helping me get acquitted, without your help I would have been conquered by the guillotine. Now I know that you really care about me and your daughter.
Time: Book 3 Chapter 3
I would like you to know that your beloved husband Charles is safe and well. I am currently acting as the prison doctor in order to stay close and keep an eye on him for you. With my great influence, I am fully confident that he will be released soon. #drmanette
Father I just wanted to thank you for all you have done to help me keep my relationship with Charles afloat! Thank you father! I love you!
Dear father I grieve of your lost years when you where you were imprisoned. The years of despair left you in a depression that is far beyond reasoning. I want to bring you back to a state that most people have. Understand me father I want you to form a family again, a family of ours so we can love each other and live a content life.
Dr. Manette I thank you dearly for defending me from the fate of the people who revolted against the French government. You are truly a great man of honor and passion. Passion for the ones you love and the ones who are your friends. Help god to repay you for saving my life for he sees your good heart.
I must thank you again for your kindness. In Lucie's absence you have taken care of me, along with Mrs. Pross. Now I am much healthier and no longer rely on shoe making skills.
I would like to thank you for helping to persuade the jury to acquit me in my trial. Why did the court like me better knowing that you are my father-in-law? Anyways, I am glad that I have finally established that I had renounced my title out of disapproval of the aristocracy's treatment of peasants long ago. Thank you for your kindness!
I cannot comprehend what idiocy led you to believe that you could actually recover your buffoon of a son-in-law from prison. Well, you are an old man whose mind is escaping him with every step, so I will take some pity. But how could you allow your daughter, such a vulnerable young thing, marry an aristocrat with a family as corrupted and villainous as his? Aristocrats are the very reason why France is on the brink of total annihilation! I wish that the Evremondes were gone forev---. That is not important. I shall weave to my heart's content whatever the case may be.
Whatever you speak of my family is of no consequence. I have renounced their name, and do not associate with them in any way. Long ago, I renounced my name; I decided not to join the revolution, but to renounce my nobility. The revolution, in my opinion, is making enemies of innocents and slaughtering everything in its path. It is a force of pure chaos. While I do not disagree with the revolution's motives, I believe that my arrest is unnecessary and wholeheartedly disapprove of the violence and evil created by such a beast. My sense of morality, not my socioeconomic position, justifies my opposition to the violence of the revolution.
My daughter is beautiful and deserves the best. I hope to be able to continue protecting her even through my old age. # Dr. Manette
Hi father, I wish to let you know I am extremely paranoid of Charles safety here in the revolutionary time and area. I understand you have healed him and that you assure his safety but it scares me to possibly lose my husband who is newly acquainted with me as well as Little Lucie losing her father. Anyhow I love you! Bye! #LucieManetteDarnay
Dear Dr. Alexander Manette, I am here to speak to you as a dear friend that cares for your welfare and condition physically and emotionally; I wish to let you know that your habits of shoe making are concerning. I do not want to inform Lucie and disturb her. Please return to your normal state. #JarvisLorry
Oh my dear, sweet Lucie. How worried she is about that husband of hers, locked away. I wish I could only ease her worries.
Everybody here has the upmost respect for you and your practices, Dr. Mannette, but why are you harboring this emmigrant? He has broken the law by coming into France illegally and should be punished by death. But, if you see fit that he is important to you, we shall let him live, For now.....
Thank you father for helping me in the hard choice of who to marry. It means even more to me that you approve of who I chose!
I am disgusted with the way you have acted. It is almost as if you have chosen your daughter over your own country. How could you! You had the power to sway her decision as to who she should marry, and you let her end up with Charles Darnay while she was under your supervision. Not only this, but you have freed this man from his charges. Perhaps you were better off in the Bastille.
You are a hero in the eyes of the patriots for your unjust punishment @Dr.manette. #Lorry
Am I? I was unaware of this--as of many things relating to my time in the Bastille...
Thank you Doctor, for trying everything in your power to get me out of this accursed prison. I am very thankful that you are trying your hardest for my sake.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
