...L'ennemi menace La France, vous vous élancez, il est foudroyé! Les peuples gémissent dans l'esclavage, ils vous tendent les bras, et vous les affranchissez du joung qui les opprime!!!... Le drapeaux tricolore couvre de ses plis généreux les capitales conquises par vous!!! et vous vous plaignez? quand il n'est pas un mortel qui ne vous porte envie!...
