"Your victory in Marseilles is the victory of the poets and all the poets of Provence are swollen with pride. I cannot tell you how the result I learned early this morning, after all this campaign that I have always followed wholeheartedly with you, is a joy for me. This is because your election, of course, is far beyond the scope of a regular election. It is a whole part of Provence, a whole part of the people of Marseilles who voted yesterday for Provence which sings and which fights in a fruitful fight. Today it is not only a canton of Marseille but all of faithful Provence that has you as its representative.
