Original Text:
L'ENLEVEMENT D'HÉLÈNE.
Pâris qui par amour sur les dents s'était mis,
N'était plus guère bon qu'à fumer un cigarre.
Hélène le savait aussi sans crier gare,
Sur ses robustes bras elle enleva Pâris.

(Enëide, travestie par Mr. Patin.)


Translation:
ABDUCTION OF HELEN.
Paris, who had worn himself out,
Was just good for nothing but kraut.
Helen knew it and in her strong arms
she carried him close to her charms.

(Eneis, disguised by Mr. Patin)
