Chapter 7 looks ahead into the nineteenth century, when Jules married Sophie and Rosalie became a grandmother. It shows the ways Rosalie adjusted to a post-revolutionary world. She developed bourgeois values that would come to define the nineteenth-century bourgeoisie. She emphasized diligence, modesty, self control, and financial prudence. In letters almost devoid of political references, she wrote instead about cultivating happy family life.
