Excerpt

antable désespoir, auquel il lui était impossible de porter remède. De grosses larmes montaient à ses yeux et sa gorge était serrée comme dans un étau.

Tout à coup Jacques se redressa.

Ses deux mains se posèrent sur les épaules du geôlier. Il plongea dans ses yeux son regard franc et clair, qui étincelait:

--Ami! lui dit-il, au nom de mon père, au nom de tous ceux que tu aimes, il faut que je sorte d'ici....

Lamalou recula, stupéfait. Non, en vérité, il n'avait pas entendu cela. La bouche béante, il regardait Jacques. Évidemment il n'avait pas compris.

--Pierre, reprit Jacques de sa voix mâle et vibrante, je te supplie de m'entendre. Vois-tu! la mort n'est rien... mais, cette nuit, il me faut ma liberté!

L'homme put enfin articuler quelques mots.

--Ah! monsieur de Costebelle, vous savez bien que c'est impossible... c'est de la folie.... La liberté! Ah! vous n'y songez pas... ne me demandez pas cela!

--Pierre, continua Jacques, combien faut-il de temps pour aller aux gorges d'Ollioules?
