Tender is the Night Book 2, Chapter 10
In September, Dick had tea with Beth in Zurich. They discussed Dick's relationship with Nicole. Beth wanted to make sure that Dick was not trying to marry Nicole just because she is rich. Beth suggested that Dick was not suitable for her, and referred to the differing social status of the two families.
Nicole entered and said that she and Dick were in love, that he was going to take care of her, and the two would live simply, without all of her money. She then, however, accepted her family's money so that she could maintain her lifestyle. She wanted the nicer apartment, and then she wanted to spend her money so that they could have a house. She rambled about her travels with Dick--they traveled all over the world that year.
Some time passes. Nicole had two children, and after her second child, Topsy, she started to go crazy again. Nicole talked about how work is everything and knowledge is important. She mentioned her friend Mary, and Tommy who was in love with her.
She went on about how she pretended to be other people. Nicole noticed that Dick and Tommy do not like each other. She mentiond how Rosemary was beautiful.
