Gaboriau, Emile (1835-1873), an eminent French novelist, was born at Saujon. In his early literary career he wrote for the Parisian papers, and his first great success was L'Affaire Lerouge, which appeared as a feuilleton of Le Pays. His tales are of the police and detective type, and display great ingenuity of plot. Two of his works, L'Argent des Autres, and La Degringolade, were published posthumously.

“Are you dejected? here is comfort. Are you sinful? here is righteousness. Are you led away with present enjoyments? here you have honours, and pleasures, and all in Christ Jesus. You have a right to common pleasures that others have, and besides them you have interest in others that are everlasting, that shall never fail; so that there is nothing that is dejecting and abasing in man, but there is comfort for it in Christ Jesus.”
–Richard Sibbes, Description of Christ
