je me le rappelle parfaitement

on March 27, 2013

Yesterday I started working on another painting, this one with a cross. Feeling very spiritual as I work and I was inspired by this page I had out of an old French book. Thought I should look up the meaning before I used it in my art, so I went over to my old friend Google.

This is what I typed:

bourg Saint-Nicolas; je me le rappelle parfaitement. Vous venez consulter ici pour votre mari ; attendez, je vais vous faire entrer dans le cabinet di docteur, je desire sincerement qu’il puisse rendre la vue a votre pauvre homme, car vous etes de bein gens.
l’ecclésiastique passa dans le cabinet aussitot que le docteur eut termine sa consultation, et ne tarda pas a en sortir pour y faire entrer Germain et sa femme. la pauvre Elisabeth etait aussi pale que la mort en y entrant; elle se sentit un grand fardeau de moinssur le coeur lorsque le docteur lui dit qu’il fallait retarder l’operation de deux jours et employer ce temps a faire certains remedes qu’il prescrivit. croyant remarquer que l’oculiste avait l’air de les traiter comme par charite, elle lui dit qu’ils avaient le moyen de payer, ajoutant que M. Edmond d’Osseville leur avait donne l’argent dont ils avaient besoin.
je suis fache, repondit le docteur en souriant, que vous n’ayez pas dit cela plus tot; j’attendais depuis plusieurs jours les personnes dont m’a parle mon juene ami; quoi qu’il en soit, il n’y a pas grand mal, et je donnerai les ordres necessaires pour qu’on vous fasse entrer aussitot dans mon cabinet jeudi prochain.
elisabeth ne cassa pas de prier et de pleurer en attendant le jeudi suivant; elle etait dans aprehensions continuelles sur le resultat de l’operation; Germain montrait plis de calme et de courage; il voyait approcher avec une douce resignation le moment qui allait decider de son sort

This is what Google gave me in return:

village of Saint-Nicolas, I remember perfectly. You come here to see your husband wait, I’ll get you into the office di doctor, I sincerely desire it can make your vision a poor man, because you are bein people.
the priest went into the office as soon as the doctor had finished his consultation, and was not long in order to bring out Germain and his wife. poor Elisabeth was as pale as death, entering, and she felt a great burden moinssur heart when the doctor told him he had to delay the operation of two days and use that time to do some remedies that prescribed. believer out that the oculist seemed to treat them as by charity, she said they had the means to pay, adding that Mr. Edmond Osseville had given them the money they needed.
I am angry, replied the doctor, smiling, you have not said this earlier, I waited for several days for people who told me about Juene my friend anyway, there is no great harm, and give the necessary orders for that you do enter soon in my office on Thursday.
elisabeth did not break to pray and cry until the following Thursday, she was in continual aprehensions on the result of the operation; Germain showed folds of calm and courage he saw approaching with gentle resignation the moment that would decide to his fate

I really love it so much.
