Il dura quelque temps sur le quai, puis il s’écoula peu à peu, comme si ce qui passait entrait dans l’intérieur de l’île, puis il cessa tout à fait, et la ligne du quai redevint droite et immobile.

Le bourgeois à qui était la fenêtre l’ouvrit, y parut en chemise avec sa lampe, regarda sur le quai avec un air hébété, prononça quelques paroles qu’elle n’entendit pas, et referma son volet.

Si maintenant le lecteur, après avoir contemplé cette scène vive et criarde qui se joue sur tous les points de la place, porte ses regards vers cette antique maison demi-gothique, demi-romane, de la Tour-Roland qui fait le coin du quai au couchant, il pourra remarquer à l’angle de la façade un gros bréviaire public à riches enluminures, garanti de la pluie par un petit auvent, et des voleurs par un grillage qui permet toutefois de le feuilleter.
If the reader, after having contemplated this lively and noisy scene which is being enacted in all parts of the Place, will now transfer his gaze towards that ancient demi−Gothic, demi−Romanesque house of the Tour−Roland, which forms the corner on the quay to the west, he will observe, at the angle of the façade, a large public breviary, with rich illuminations, protected from the rain by a little penthouse, and from thieves by a small grating, which, however, permits of the leaves being turned.
Il descendit l'échelle de fer du quai et sauta dans l'embarcation.
