Extrait: ... forces de faire halte et de passer la nuit au camp de Smendou. Le camp de Smendou avait des murailles, mais n'avait point de maisons. On avait du songer a se defendre avant de songer a se loger. Je me trompe: il y avait une grande barraque en bois qui portait le nom pompeux d'auberge, et une petite maison en pierre modelee en miniature sur le fameux hotel de Nantes, qui est reste si longtemps debout et isole sur la place du Carrousel, laquelle maison etait habitee par le payeur du regiment en garnison au camp de Smendou. C'est remarquable comme il fait froid en Afrique c'etait a croire que le soleil, roi des Saharas, avait abdique, et faisait faire son interim par Saturne ou par Mercure. Il avait plu, et gele par-dessus la pluie; de sorte que nous arrivions au terme de notre etape tout mouilles et tout transis. Nous entrames a l'auberge et nous nous pressames autour du poele, tout en commandant le souper. Il faisait une bise atroce, et cette bise passait par les planches gercees, de maniere a nous faire craindre d'etre obliges de souper sans chandelle. Smendou, en 1846, n'en etait pas arrive encore a ce degre de civilisation, de se servir de lampes ou de bougies. Je demandai deux hommes de bonne volonte pour se mettre en quete d'une chambre, tandis que je veillerais sur le souper. Quoiqu'on mangeat mieux qu'en Espagne, cela ne voulait pas dire que l'on mangeat agreablement et abondamment. Giraud et Desbarolles se devouerent. Ils prirent une lanterne: tenter de parcourir les corridors avec une chandelle, c'etait une entreprise insensee qui ne se presenta meme point a leur esprit. Au bout de dix minutes, les intrepides explorateurs revinrent; ils rapportaient cette nouvelle, qu'ils avaient trouve une espece de galetas par les interstices duquel le vent penetrait de tous les cotes. Le seul avantage que presentait une nuit passee la sur une nuit passee a la belle etoile, c'est qu'on avait chance...

After an idle youth, Alexandre Dumas went to Paris and spent some years writing. A volume of short stories and some farces were his only productions until 1927, when his play Henri III (1829) became a success and made him famous. It was as a storyteller rather than a playwright, however, that Dumas gained enduring success. Perhaps the most broadly popular of French romantic novelists, Dumas published some 1,200 volumes during his lifetime. These were not all written by him, however, but were the works of a body of collaborators known as "Dumas & Co." Some of his best works were plagiarized. For example, The Three Musketeers (1844) was taken from the Memoirs of Artagnan by an eighteenth-century writer, and The Count of Monte Cristo (1845) from Penchet's A Diamond and a Vengeance. At the end of his life, drained of money and sapped by his work, Dumas left Paris and went to live at his son's villa, where he remained until his death.
