Personally, I'd like to think Madame Forestier would take pity on Mathilde and do just that. It would be a gracious gesture, and a great help to Mathile and her husband. None-the-less, I'd also like her to give Mathilde a nice long lecture about honesty and openess. Had Mathilde been honest to begin with.... she could have saved her husband and herself from unnecessary hardship.
