Excerpt

dité de leur procédé. Il fallut recourir à la protection du consul français de Soller, et, quel que fût son empressement, je n'en restai pas moins captif pendant trois mortelles heures, gardé par le señor _Sei-Dedos_, gouverneur du fort, véritable dragon des Hespérides. La tentation me prenait quelquefois de jeter à la mer, du haut de son bastion, ce dragon risible et son accoutrement militaire; mais sa mine désarmait toujours ma colère. Si j'avais eu le talent de Charlet, j'aurais passé mon temps à étudier mon gouverneur, excellent modèle de caricature. Au reste, je lui pardonnais son dévouement trop aveugle au salut de l'État. Il était bien naturel que ce pauvre homme, n'ayant d'autre distraction que celle de fumer son cigare en regardant la mer, profitât de l'occasion que je lui offrais de varier ses occupations. Je revins donc à Soller, riant de bon coeur d'avoir été pris pour un ennemi de la patrie et de la constitution» (_Souvenirs d'un voyage d'art à l'île de Majorque_, par J.-B. Laurens.)]
