Qu’est-ce qu’ils font, ceux du palais? Ils ne se pressent pas. Moi. je trouve que c’est le plus dur, cette attente : on est l, on pitine sous un ciel de feu, sans quitter des yeux cette pierre noire … Ha! ils sont l-bas derrire; ils attendent comme nous, tout rjouis la pense du mal qu’ils vont nous faire.

Horrible, horrible attente. Il me semble, vous tous, que vous vous loignez lentement de moi. La pierre n’est pas encore te, et dj chacun est en proie ses morts, seul comme une goutte de pluie.

Chiens! Osez-vous bien vous plaindre? Avez-vous perdu la mmoire de votre abjection? Par Jupiter, je rafrachirai vos souvenirs. Il faut bien nous rsoundre commencer sans elle. Qu’on aille qurir lectre au palais et qu’on l’amne ici, de gr ou de force.

Piti! Piti!

A vos places. Les hommes ma droite. A ma gauche les femmes et les enfants.

Ces gens-l n’en peuvent plus. tez la pierre.

Ils sont l!

Horreur! Piti! Horreur! Piti!

Ruffian! Je ne te permettrai pas de mler le nom de mon pre tes singeries!

Arrtez, jeunne homme, arrtez-vous!

lectre!

lectre!

English Translation:

What are they up to, those palace folk? They’re never in a hurry, and it’s all this waiting gets one down, what with the blazing sun and only that big black stone to look at. Just think! They’re all in there, crowded up behind the stone, gloating over the cruel things they’re going to do to us.

Oh this horrible, horrible suspense! Do you know, I have a feeling that all of you are drifting miles and miles away, leaving me alone. The stone is not yet rolled aside, but each of us is shut up with his dead, and lonely as a raindrop.

Dogs! How dare you bewail your lot? Have you forgotten your disgrace? Then by Jupiter, I shall refresh your memories. We must start without her it seems. Go seek lectre in the palace, and bring her here; by force if needs be.

Mercy! Mercy!

Take your usual places. The men on my right; women and children on my left.

Sire, these people are at breaking point. Roll away the stone.

They are coming forth!

Heaven help us! Have mercy!

I forbid you to drag my fathers name into this mummery!

Stop young fellow! stop that!

lectre!

lectre!
