Excerpt

t menus abattis de volailles; la rousse me semble née d'un gril chargé de côtelettes et de saucisses; la noire vient tout simplement des fours de boulangers... On fait de si bon pain à Poissy!

--Nous ne sommes pas à Poissy, répondit philosophiquement un des gardes qui s'étendit sur l'herbe brûlée; nous sommes sur les terres de Sa Majesté.

--Dirai-je très-chrétienne? demanda un autre d'un ton goguenard.

--Pas encore mais bientôt, j'espère, dit vivement Pontis. Le roi nous fait mourir de faim parce qu'il n'est pas catholique. Que ne l'est-il?

--Eh! eh! monsieur de la messe, crièrent au jeune homme plusieurs huguenots réveillés par ce souhait de Pontis, si vous n'êtes pas de la religion, n'en dégoûtez pas les autres.

Le capitaine s'éloigna en chantonnant, pour ne point se compromettre.
