Best answer
The pocket book was found by one Marius Paumelle and returned to its owner. The news spread through the neighbourhood. Hauchecome was informed of it. He was in triumph. He went round the village and recounted his story. He went on telling his story to everyone he met throughout the day. But nobody seemed to believe him. People had the air of jocking while they listened. They did not seem convinced. Remarks were made behind his back. On the following Tuesday he went to the market and told his story to everyone he met. But again no one seemed to believe him. A farmer from Crequetot gave him a thump and called him a big rascal. In the Jourdian's tavern also nobody believed his story. He left the inn sadly.
