V… a préféré l’aveu délicat de sa faiblesse à la stabilité rassurante d’une position établie dans sa province. Aussi voit-elle les garants de l’ordre social se liguer contre le héros, au nom d’une morale de l’honneur partiale et déficiente. Le maréchal de camp est d’ailleurs le premier à plaider sa cause auprès de son fils, qu’il a jugé coupable avant même d’en obtenir les preuves. Il n’est pas indifférent de constater que celuici commet la même erreur avec Madame de B… Prévenu contre elle par une intendante malveillante, il ne lui laisse aucune chance de se disculper.

Les deux dîners suivants et la rencontre qui concluent cet ensemble constituent le négatif des soupers précédents. Les deux premiers ont pour cadre la petite société idéale à laquelle appartient le président déjà mentionné. Ici, le narrateur rencontre enfin un univers conforme à ses désirs, où il trouve « tout le mérite humain rassemblé et tous les plaisirs réunis » (MHH, 242), et où son cœur pourra épancher ses aspirations altruistes, à travers le sentiment vrai de l’amitié pure. Au lendemain du repas donné par le président, il reçoit en effet la visite d’un convive de la veille, Monsieur de La…, qui lui avoue d’emblée son inclination.

Le lien entre la première et la deuxième visite du héros aux de B… serait dès lors clarifié : avec le 23 Jean Sgard, Prévost romancier, op. , p. 514.
