Side 63 - ... et sa queue, dont il sort un bruit sinistre, oscille avec tant de rapidité, qu'elle ressemble à une légère vapeur. Alors le Canadien commence à jouer sur sa flûte ; le serpent fait un mouvement de surprise , et retire la tête en arrière.
Side 61 - Ses couleurs sont aussi peu déterminées que sa marche : elles changent aux divers aspects de la lumière, et, comme ses mouvements , elles ont le faux brillant et les variétés trompeuses de la séduction. Plus étonnant encore dans le reste de ses mœurs, il sait, ainsi qu'un homme souillé de meurtre, jeter à l'écart sa robe tachée de sang, dans la crainte d'être reconnu.
