- "Woman, wake up; the toxin of reason must be heard throughout the whole universe; discover your rights. The powerful empire of nature is no longer surrounded by prejudice, fanaticism, superstition, and lies. The flame of truth has dispersed all the clouds of folly and usurpation. Enslaved man has multiplied his strength and needs recourse to you to break his chains. Having become free, he has become unjust to his companion. Oh, women, women! When will you cease to be blind? What advantage have you received from the Revolution?"

- Arno: Were you alone?
- The sad soldier: Just as I arrived someone ran. I'm sure he wore a soldier's uniform.
- Arno: Were you in town last night?
- The young musician (A very young musician, earning a wage by performing in the streets): Why?
- Arno: A soldier has been found dead there. You look like the killer.
- The young musician: Not me, I was at the bar the whole time! And why would I kill a soldier? I want to join the army! Who would hit a woman anyway? There's no fun in hitting a woman!
- Arno: Were you downtown last night?
- The old officer (An old-fashioned officer of the French army. He is enjoying the warm glow of the tavern): I surely was not. I was attending a lovely performance the whole night.
Arno returned to the market and accused the young musician.
- The young musician: This is a man's world. These Revolutionary libertines must be stopped. I was certain you saw things my way. But you are worse than a woman.
The young musician attacked Arno, but was killed by him.
|The murderer was the young musician, who opposed the introduction of female soldiers into the French Revolutionary Army.|
