The author is in the middle of working when he suddenly gets a visitor – a friend, whose face is completely pale.

Alexandre Dumas (1802–1870) was a French writer. He is best known for his novels ‘The Count of Monte Cristo’ and ‘The Three Musketeers'. Dumas is considered as one of the most significant French writers of the 19th century.
