Abstract: 
Surcouf (2nd Chapter), The English Pontoons, No. 4. A strong effervescence reigned in Saint-Malo. "The Gazette:" We have learned that many of our countrymen held prisoner aboard the English ship named the "Crown" rebelled, and have been killed … Fearing for the life of the prisoners, Dutertre decided to prevent Surcouf from leaving. - The Malouins just learned that many of our own have revolted, and that they have been killed on the pontoons. - The mob wants to kill the English prisoners, you alone, can prevent this, come on! … The mob had already broken through the gates of the prison. - You, Bretons, attack defenseless prisoners!! - I swore that they would be respected. You will not make me break my word. And our brothers, should we let them die on the English Pontoons? - To prevent the riot, the minister is rushed. - I'm going to write to William Pitt, the Prime Minister of England, and I'll propose that we'll exchange some of our prisoners for theirs. - But who will take the letter to England? - Your Excellency, here is the wife of General Bruce; you couldn’t make a better choice.
