"Monsieur La Baudunais ne sera pas embarassé pour donner sa voix dans les élections puisse t-il y trouver beaucoup de citoyens qui lui ressemblent !" [= "M. La Baudunais will not be embarassed to vote for this election" and Bernardin de Saint-Pierre adds "may he find many people like him !"]
Bernardin de Saint-Pierre also writes : "J'ai publié tout ce que j'ai cru pouvoir être utile à ma malheureuse patrie. Ma santé dérangée m'interdit toute espèce de travail." [ ="I have published everything I believed to be helpful for my unfortunate country. My poor health prevent me from doing any work." ]
