O TIME, STAY THY FLIGHT

and I were due to leave the first day. Robert Fraenckel, exempt from service because of his nearsightedness, refused to stay behind and went to Rouen where he hoped to enlist. My father, who had recently resigned and had great need of rest, announced that he would take my place for the duration of the war and that he refused remuneration. Patriotism was present everywhere. In August 1914 France showed itself marvellously united. Young workmen came to shake hands with their employers.

Above us the stars revolved gently, but we talked on in the warm night until dawn. Very shortly after we had finally retired we were wakened by the drums of the mobilization. Only once when I was with the regiment had I heard the lugubrious beat to arms. It overwhelmed me. From street corner to street corner the drum beats answered one another and re-echoed in our hearts. Then the bells of the churches in Elbeuf, in Caudebec, in Saint-Pierre fell to ringing out the tocsin. The die was cast.
