  • Text: Le 31 Janvier 1915, dans l'humble cimitière le La Celle-Saint-Cloud, eut lieu une émouvante / cérémonie à la sépulture de Paul DÉROULÈDE, en l'honneur de l'anniversaire de sa mort. / Dans une touchante et belle pensée, ses amis déposèrent sur la tombe un des premiers poteaux / enlevé à la frontière alsacienne reconquise. / Aucun hommage n'aurait pu être plus sensible au grand patriote, fidèle chevalier de l'Alsace- / Lorraine, qui toujours avait espéré la revanche et qui, d'avance, avait prédit la victoire de nos armes./ Comme l'a dit éloquemment sur sa tombe, l'autre grand patriote, Maurice BARRÈS: / "O! Destin, il fallait nous laisser DÉROULÈDE, une année encore!"
