Sie versuchten nun, die Felder zu verpachten (es kam ihnen nicht einmal in den Sinn, daß sie sie hätten verkaufen können, sie und das anspruchsvolle, halb verfallene Haus, das der Vater in der Stadt erworben hatte und das sie in der Folge, Bodendiele um Bodendiele, Decke um Decke und Ziegel um Ziegel in jahrelanger Arbeit praktisch vom Keller bis zum Speicher wiederaufbauten), aber die meisten waren so schwer zugänglich und so wenig ertragreich, daß niemand sie haben wollte, und bei denen, die jemand zu übernehmen bereit war, bestahl man sie erneut, so daß schließlich, ungeachtet der Proteste des Knaben, der sonntags ebenfalls in eine alte Hose schlüpfte und an ihrer Seite arbeitete, eine von ihnen, die ältere (es war auch noch die Mutter da – oder vielmehr eine Sache (eine Kugel), etwa so groß wie eine Faust und gelb, eine Haube mit Volants auf dem Kopf, die regungslos auf einem Kissen lag, das makellose Laken bis zum Kinn hochgezogen, so flach, daß es nichts zu bedecken schien, mit einem Mund in der Mitte der Falten, dem man mit Hilfe eines kleinen Löffels etwas weißlichen Brei einflößte, der weiter unten wieder herauskam in Form von Exkrementen, von denen man sie täglich säuberte)… so daß schließlich also die Ältere resigniert zu der Stellung zurückkehrte, aus welcher der Vater sie für 56 immer hatte herausholen wollen, und mit ihren Werkzeugen erneut die Wege zurücklegte zu den Maisgevierten, den Weinbergen oder den Obstgärten, deren Bäume Birnen trugen, die schon wurmstichig waren, bevor sie reiften, und hart wie Holz.

Jedenfalls brauchte das Regiment (die Truppe in den Viehwagen zusammengepfercht, der Oberst und seine Offiziere in einem Erste-Klasse-Wagen auf Polsterbänken bespannt mit grauem Tuch und mit Schonerdeckchen versehen) über sechsunddreißig Stunden, ehe es auf einem kleinen Bahnhof des Departements Meuse ausstieg, von wo es in Gewaltmärschen nach Belgien aufbrach, jeder der berittenen Hauptleute seiner Kompanie ein wenig voraus, die jungen Leutnants und Unterleutnants am Schluß des Zugs.
