Original Text:

-Eh! bien, monsieur Caboulot, vous ne venez pas?........ il est temps de rentrer chez nous......

-Non..., j'ai vu un oiseau venir se remiser sur cet arbre,...... je ne vois rien bouger...., il dort probablement......, mais dusse-je passer la nuit ici, je le surprendrai à son réveil !........

Translation:

-Well, Mr. Caboulot, aren't you coming? It's time to go back home.

-No, I just saw a bird landing on this tree, I don't see anything moving right now, he is probably sleeping, but even if I have to spend the night here, I'll surprise him when he wakes up in the morning!
