"What, the devil! Mr. Dumont, a man like you needs to possess Connaissances utiles ([journal of] useful knowledge)! ... I need to subscribe you ... -No, no, it's a waste of time, I do not want it. -You are absolutely right! But I will give you a good bottle of Bordeaux -No, no that wine is too dry, I do not like it ... You are certainly right! Let's not talk about it anymore; I will sign you up for only the Connaissances utiles and a bottle of Bordeaux ... No, Mr. Macaire, no! -Very good, by God! It's fine! You will pay me when you want; I will send a bill tomorrow!"
