    • Scene First.—An inn on the road to Flourens.
    • Scene Second.—The Widow Munier's house in Flourens. Not the poor rude hut that Oliver had left her in when he first went to Paris, but the house of the late Doctor Fouchette—the best house in the town. The Widow Munier is discovered sitting at the window, with her face close to the glass, looking down the street expectantly.

    • Scene Fourth.—The parlor of the house in Flourens.
    • Scene Fifth.—A garden at the Château de Flourens.
    • Scene Sixth.—The marquis's cabinet. The marquis discovered seated at a table, drumming upon it with his fingers, and awaiting the coming of Oliver, who has just been announced. Enter Oliver, carrying a stout iron-bound box, which he deposits upon the table.
    • Scene Seventh.—The Watteau-like garden described before—the trees, the statues, the fountains, the flowers, the river. Mademoiselle Céleste is discovered sitting in the shade, reading, and making just such a picture as the great artist would have painted upon a fan.
    • Scene Eighth.—The marquis's private closet.
  • ACT III.—Paris.
    • Scene First.—Madame de Pompadour's salon.
    • Scene Second.—A room in the Hôtel de Flourens, whither Oliver has been removed after having fainted in madame's salon.

    • Scene Fourth.—The marquis's dressing-room.
  • ACT IV.
    • Scene First.—The Seine at midnight.
    • Scene Second.—The master's apartments.
