I just read a story called: Emilie: A Tale of the French Revolution, and in this story Emilie has just escaped execution by members of the more radical jacobin party, who have seized control of the revolution and believe the Girondists must be put down. As she escapes she suddenly gets spotted by an old baker who lets her escape. The baker and his wife provide Emilie everything necessary to escape from the city she was in. They kindly give her a pass, from which she could escape the city.

my question is Why were the baker and his wife sympathetic to Emilie?

    The baker and his wife were sympathetic to Emilie because he understood she was the one who escaped execution by members of the more radical Jacobin party. He may have been through the same experience, felt awful not to help, or was just a very kind man.
