19th century:
§684. Deputy-mayor of Beaussac murdered (1870.8.16): VI-32.

VI-32:
He shall be beaten to death with clubs for treasons,
Shall be taken, trampled in his disorder of clothes:
A frivolous counsel of the wretched great captive,
When Begich shall come in fury to bite his nose.

(Par trahysons de verges à mort battu,
Prins surmonté sera par son desordre:
Conseil frivole au grand captif sentu,
Nez par fureur quant Begich viendra mordre.)

NOTES: Par trahysons (for treasons): The preposition PAR (FOR) expressing the cause.

Par son desordre (in his disorder), par fureur (in fury): The preposition PAR (IN) expressing the manner (cf. Brunot & Bruneau).

Conseil au grand captif (A counsel of the great captive): This counsel is by himself to himself, the preposition “ à ” expressing “ belonging ” (OF).

Sentu: “Horrible, hideous” (Torné-Chavigny, 1870, p.213).

Begich: = “Berich”, “ Bérich: A demon which one evoked to discover his money, lost or stolen. Those who evoked, in such a situation, Berich, were brought to the fire. (Curiosités des Traditions) ” (Torné-Chavigny, id., p.214).

Here is a document that can explain the quatrain at full length: “ Assize Court of Dordogne (December 13th, 1870): On the 16th of the month of August of this year, the day of fair at Hautefaye, around one o’clock, Mr. Alain de Moneys, Deputy-mayor of Beaussac [the great], just arrived at the place of the fair. He heard a great tumult. He asked Mr. Brethenoux the cause of it. He said that Mr. Maillard had cried: Down with Napoleon ! Long live the Republic ! “ It isn’t possible ! ” said Mr. Moneys in taking part with his cousin. – Follow me, said Brethenoux, I will show you it. And he at once jumped into a meadow. Mr. Moneys followed him there. – “ May those who had heard Mr. Maillard cry Long live the Republic ! Down with Napoleon ! raise their hand.” – More than eighty hands were raised. A crowd of people rushed into the medow and attacked Mr. Moneys... It was in vain that he tried to disarm those who surrounded him in crying: Long live the Emperor ! A cascade of the furious bounded upon him, in flourishing clubs, “ It resembled an army,” said a witness. The strokes rained upon his head, the cries of death began to be heard around him. The priest of Hautefaye ran up to help Mr. Moneys with a revolver in hand, but, attained by a hit of an umbrella on the head, menaced by the clubs rising over him, he was taken back into his presbytery by some of his friends, on the other hand the frantic who had taken Mr. Moneys dragged him in vociferating: “ He cried: Long live Prussia ! Long live the Republic ! He should be killed, he should be burned.” In order to try to disarm them, he did not stop protesting by his cries of Long live the Emperor ! [a frivolous counsel of the wretched great captive] against the caluminous accusation that was going to cost him his life. The crowd answered: “ Oh ! he says so, now,” and the strokes continued to rain upon his head, which was inundated with blood... At last they pushed him into a stable, where he had to bow to enter... He took off his vest and shirt, that were ragged [in his disorder of clothes]... “ We have killed him; he would not shout Long live the Emperor ! Till the last moment, he would not withdraw. We were at least eighty in number there... We have done it to save France, our emperor will save us surely...” ” (Torné-Chavigny, id., p.214-215).
