    I think Haydee knows who Albert is. Wasn’t there that scene at the opera where Monte Cristo pointed him out to her and said so, and she was so affected they had to leave?

      Oh you are SO RIGHT! I remembered that they hadn’t spoken, but forgot that Monte Cristo pointed him out to HER! YES!

    Did anyone else notice that when Beauchamp asks for three weeks to investigate the story further, he says that’s 24 days? Did they go by a different calendar back then?

      I wonder if that was like a “bakers dozen” or an accepted unit of time (like a fortnight). Or, you know, it could be Dumas writing too fast. ?
