'Then let us walk up and down, said Mercier, yes, arm in arm
let us pace to and fro. There is not much room, but there might
be even less. Lay down our umbrella, there, help me off with our
knapsack, so, thanks, and off we go.
Every now and then the sky lightened and the rain abated.
Then they would halt before the door. This was the signal for
the sky to darken again and the rain to redouble in fury.'
Mercier et Camier
