Excerpt

emme murmura:

--Notre voisine s'appelait Marie-Jeanne et notre servante s'appelait Marie-Claude.

Cependant le sergent Radoub admonestait le grenadier.

--Tais-toi. Tu as fait peur à madame. On ne jure pas devant les dames.

--C'est que c'est tout de même un véritable massacrement pour l'entendement d'un honnête homme, répliqua le grenadier, que de voir des iroquois de la Chine qui ont eu leur beau-père estropié par le seigneur, leur grand-père galérien par le curé, et leur père pendu par le roi, et qui se battent, nom d'un petit bonhomme! et qui se fichent en révolte, et qui se font écrabouiller pour le seigneur, le curé et le roi!

Le sergent cria:

--Silence dans les rangs!

--On se tait, sergent, reprit le grenadier; mais ça n'empêche pas que c'est ennuyeux qu'une jolie femme comme ça s'expose à se faire casser la gueule pour les beaux yeux d'un calotin.

--Grenadier, dit le sergent, nous ne sommes pas ici au club de la section des Piques. Pas d'éloquence.

Et il se tourna vers la femme
