By Henri Dabot
Quand Henri Dabot (1831-1907) termine sa longue carrière d'avocat, il relit et reprend le magazine qu'il a tenu au lengthy de sa vie d'adulte. Ce Parisien curieux de tout et fin observateur, féru d'histoire, a consigné ses 'griffonnages' – comme il aimait à le dire lui-même. Républicain modéré et bon catholique, il aurait pu ne laisser que des écrits un peu plats et ternes, prudhommesques, mais, grâce à son esprit délié, il a au contraire donné des textes relevés et vivants, très plaisants à lire, regorgeant de faits, de détails quotidiens, d'anecdotes, sur l'actualité politique et les mœurs sociales. Mais c'est en deux temps qu'Henri Dabot a conçu ce qui nous reste comme l'un des plus précieux témoignages contemporains de los angeles seconde moitié du XIXe siècle : un fil quotidien, écrit au présent des événements ; et un commentaire rétrospectif, qui examine, remet en viewpoint, evaluate, donne sa measurement historique à l'archive. Ce quantity couvre l. a. période courant de mai 1869 à décembre 1871, ces moments dramatiques de los angeles guerre franco-prussienne, du siège de Paris, puis de l. a. Commune. Ces Griffonnages offrent les notes prises sur le vif family à los angeles guerre, à l. a. politique, à l'alimentation et aux différents facets du quotidien : l. a. vie dans les caves, les bombardements, l. a. faim, l. a. petite vérole, l'inquiétude pour les amis et l. a. famille, los angeles development des combats et des pillages dans Paris insurgé puis mis au pas par les Versaillais.
