The Abb0tC1'1'rlc' 1920
"U15be Bumancers "
Once upon a time in olden France there lived and loved two children, Sylvette and Percinet.
Oftimes for the sake of a kiss, they would steal by starlight to the crumbling old wall that separated
their gardens, little dreaming that their fathers were far from being the feudal foes they thought
One night the bell for vespers found Percinet waiting at the wall for Sylvette, when a sudden
shriek rang through the gardens! In a trice he had leapt to the other side, and was upon the rav-
ishers, sword in hand, and when Bergamin and Pasquinot arrived on the disordered scene, it was to
find Sylvette in the arms of Percinet. Well did the fathers feign astonishment, and well might
they be reconciled to the marriage since it was naught but their own cherished plan!
With this change of conditions the wall was torn down, the two gardens merged in one, and now
constant irritations between Bergamin and Pasquinot arose, finally resulting in a complete con-
fession of the false abduction to Sylvette. Percinet, reading by mistake the bill of the abduction
drawn up by the swordsman, Straforel, who had staged the little drama, fled in a rage from the gar-
At this utter ruin of all their hopes and plans, Bergamin and Pasquinot considered the bill of the
abduction void, and so, in order to get his ninety pistoles, Straforel was forced to patch up the mar-
riage, which he did by so disgusting Sylvette with romance that it was with open arms she wel-
comed back the wanderer, and the scene ends in a charming tableau - the wedding minuet.
