À chaque famille, ils offraient la charité de recueillir l’un de ses enfants ; ainsi que le secours immédiat d’une pièce d’argent et, plus précieux encore, quelques vivres. La faim 40 G4/450-D65677-BAT-3 à fin Page 41 Mardi, 4. juillet 2006 4:42 16 avilit sûrement : les parents cédaient leurs plus beaux petits ; les mères pleuraient mais obtempéraient, pensant sauver ainsi leur progéniture.

L’été fut pire encore : l’eau manqua partout, avec l’eau le fourrage ; une sécheresse extrême brûla les blés, le seigle et le froment. Le petit peuple des journaliers ne trouva plus à louer ses bras.

On avait aussi trouvé dans son échoppe un exemplaire d’un libelle ordurier à l’endroit de quelques notables du cru.
