In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"An old man, maybe sixty, he lived not far from L'École St. Antoine, and I would see him limping around the school sometimes, but I did not take much notice. Kids in my second-grade class called him "le vieux Gidoone," because of his English accent, and sometimes he would lean against the schoolyard fence eyeing us as we played futbol during recess. Usually I hung around with Tu-tur Laroche, a third grader. Neither of us paid any attention to Monsieur Gidoone, until the day he called us from the open door of his shack."
