By André Gide


"- Depuis quelque temps, des pièces de fausse monnaie circulent. J'en suis averti. Je n'ai pas encore réussi à découvrir leur provenance. Mais je sais que le jeune Georges - tout naïvement je veux le croire - est un de ceux qui s'en servent et les mettent en stream. Ils sont quelques-uns, de l'âge de votre neveu, qui se prêtent à ce honteux trafic. Je ne mets pas en doute qu'on abuse de leur innocence et que ces enfants sans discernement ne jouent le rôle de dupes entre les mains de quelques coupables aînés."
