Excerpt

quelques mois, fort pris par un voyage d'exploration dans la région nord-ouest de Courbevoie.

Quand je rentrai à Paris, des lettres s'amoncelaient sur le bureau de mon cabinet de travail; parmi ces dernières, une, bordée de noir.

C'est ainsi que j'éprouvai la douloureuse stupeur d'apprendre le décès de mon pauvre ami Bonaventure Desmachins, trépassé dans sa vingt-huitième année.

--Comment, m'écriai-je, Desmachins! Un garçon si bien portant, si vigoureusement constitué!

Mais quand j'appris, quelques heures plus tard, de quoi était mort Desmachins, ma douloureuse stupeur fit alors place à un si vif épatement que j'en tombai de mon haut (2 m 08).

--Comment, me récriai-je, Desmachins! Un garçon si rangé, si vertueux!

Le fait est que la chose paraissait invraisemblable.

Pauvre Desmachins! Je le vois encore si tranquille, si bien
