Excerpt

ment, je n'avais pas, comme eux, un poisson dans le bec.

«Cinq minutes après je n'y pensais plus, et j'étais sec comme M. Valéry, tant le soleil a mis de complaisance à me caresser.

«Oh! je voudrais, partout où vous êtes, madame, conduire un rayon de ce beau soleil, ne fût-ce que pour faire éclore sur votre fenêtre une touffe de myosotis.

«Adieu, madame; pardonnez-moi cette longue lettre; je ne suis pas coutumier de la chose, et, comme l'enfant qui se défendait d'avoir fait le monde, je vous promets que je ne le ferai plus; mais aussi pourquoi le concierge du ciel a-t-il laissé ouverte cette porte d'ivoire par laquelle sortent les songes dorés?

«Veuillez agréer, madame, l'hommage de mes sentiments les plus respectueux. «ALEXANDRE DUMAS.

«Je serre bien cordialement la main de Jules.»

Maintenant, à quel propos cette lettre tout intime?
