... yards the British battleships opened fire. The first gun from the Britain was a signal which turned them all into so many floating volcanoes. The Britain herself ran between the Patrie and the Republique, vomiting storms of shell, first ahead, then on the broadside and then astern.

... to empty his snuff-box, full of Spanish snuff, into a large glass of wine, and to make Santeuil drink it, in order to see what would happen.

Several mild maniacs ran out in vast agitation, and, to curry favour, offered to help catch him. Vast was their zeal.

Why had steps not been taken to defend them the day before, if their leaders had suspected this, or why, rather, had they insisted on holding ...
