Je vais encourir bien des reproches. Mais qu'y puis-je ? Est-ce ma faute si j'eus douze ans quelques mois avant la declaration de la guerre ? Sans doute, les troubles qui me vinrent de cette periode extraordinaire furent d'une sorte qu'on n'eprouve jamais a cet age ; mais comme il n'existe rien d'assez fort pour nous vieillir malgre les apparences, c'est en enfant que je devais me conduire dans une aventure ou deja un homme eut eprouve de l'embarras.
