EXAMPLES
On n’entendait que plaintes et imprécations contre les Flamands, le prévôt des marchands, le cardinal de Bourbon, le bailli du Palais, madame Marguerite d’Autriche, les sergents à verge, le froid, le chaud, le mauvais temps, l’évêque de Paris, le pape des fous, les piliers, les statues, cette porte fermée, cette fenêtre ouverte ; le tout au grand amusement des bandes d’écoliers et de laquais disséminées dans la masse, qui mêlaient à tout ce mécontentement leurs taquineries et leurs malices, et piquaient, pour ainsi dire, à coups d’épingle la mauvaise humeur générale.
Nothing was to be heard but imprecations on the Flemish, the provost of the merchants, the Cardinal de Bourbon, the bailiff of the courts, Madame Marguerite of Austria, the sergeants with their rods, the cold, the heat, the bad weather, the Bishop of Paris, the Pope of the Fools, the pillars, the statues, that closed door, that open window; all to the vast amusement of a band of scholars and lackeys scattered through the mass, who mingled with all this discontent their teasing remarks, and their malicious suggestions, and pricked the general bad temper with a pin, so to speak.
-- En effet, dit Porthos, si nous ne pouvons nous absenter du camp, nos laquais peuvent le quitter.
"Ay," said Porthos, "if we cannot leave the camp, our lackeys may."
Arrivés à l’appartement de l’évêque, de grands laquais bien chamarrés daignèrent à peine répondre au vieux curé que Monseigneur n’était pas visible.
When they reached the Bishop's apartment, the tall lackeys smothered in gold lace barely condescended to inform the old cure that His Lordship could not be seen.
Leurs laquais aussi étaient absents, et l'on n'avait des nouvelles ni des uns, ni des autres.
Their lackeys likewise were absent, and nothing had been heard of either the one or the other.
Nous armerons les quatre laquais de pistolets et de mousquetons; si l'on envoie une armée contre nous, nous livrerons bataille, et le survivant, comme l'a dit d'Artagnan, portera la lettre.
We will arm our four lackeys with pistols and musketoons; if they send an army out against us, we will give battle, and the survivor, as d’Artagnan says, will carry the letter."
