Histoire de M. Vieux Bois 26

M. V.B. continue sa route tirant l’âne après lui.

M. V.B. devant repasser par les terres des moines, se déguise en meunier et déguise l’objet aimé en sac de farine.

Les moines ayant droit de péage sondent le sac qui se crispe en poussant un cri affreux. Frayeur extrême! M. V.B. leur dit que c’est le diable en personne.

Les moines voyant marcher le sac, sont persuadés que c’est le diable et s’enfuient à toutes jambes, au grand plaisir de M. V.B.

   

 

Mr. V.B. continues on his way, pulling the donkey behind him.

Forced to cross the monks’ fields, Mr. V.B. disguises himself as a miller and the beloved object as a sack of flour.

Having the right of passage the monks probe the sack, which crinkles up with an awful scream. Extreme fright! Mr. V.B. tells them that it’s the devil himself.

Seeing the sack walk, the monks are persuaded that the devil is there and take off as fast as their legs can carry them, to Mr. V.B.’s great delight.
