Jean-Claude Halley: Daniel Marciano Enhanced Image of Saint-Georges With Historical Fact

[Le Chevalier de Saint-Georges; Published by the Conseil Régional de la Guadeloupe (Regional Council of Guadeloupe) (2005)]

Yesterday AfriClassical posted: “Daniel Marciano On Discovery of Death Report of Le Chevalier de Saint-Georges”. Monsieur Marciano is a former professor at the University of Franche-Comté in Besançon, France. Today Jean-Claude Halley of Guadeloupe has contributed a comment in French.  It can be found on the blog, just below yesterday's post.  Our English translation follows:

This article published on the website of Bill Zick in the USA is not surprising. It brought to mind Daniel Marciano's constant attitude of enhancing the image of Le Chevalier de Saint-Georges, while rigorously adhering to historical fact. I still recall with emotion the first exchanges between Besançon and Guadeloupe and the words of Daniel's invaluable writings. Subsequently, the sequence of events and the findings of researchers showed the qualities of that rare Chevalier enthusiast. Daniel collaborated with spontaneity and efficiency in the little children's book published by Guadeloupe, and always responded positively to all requests. Jean-Claude HALLEY”
