  • Text: C'est dans la petite salle de la mairie de Thann que le général Joffre est venu saluer la terre / d'Alsace. Ils étaient là quatre ou cinq têtes robustes, regards francs, moustaches grises ou blanches, tous / étreints d'une poignante émotion. Le généralisme [sic] vient d'entrer, il a redressé sa haute taille et a prononcé / ces paroles inoubliables: / "Notre retour est définitif, vous êtes Français pour toujours : la France apporte avec les libertés qu'elle / a toujours représentées le respect de vos libertés à vous, des libertés alsaciennes, de vos traditions, de / vos convistions, de vos moeurs. Je suis la France, vous etes l'Alsace. Je vous apporte le baiser de la / France" (Decembre 1914)
