|I LIKED THE OLD BELLS BETTER!|
Sibson discovered that Hugo had links with the restoration of the cathedral at that time and was aware that the hunchback oversaw another employee named Monsieur Trajin, Both Hugo and the hunchback (Le Bossu) lived in the same town of St. Germain des Pres in 1833. In the early drafts of Les Miserables, Hugo named his main character "Jean Trajin," later changing it to "Jean Valjean." Connect the Dots, or rather the Humps.

in the peal, the air, the heart of ringing.
We’ll take refuge in bells and we’ll float
over the earth in their heavy casings.
and a single white daisy, over the bench on which love
carved its imperfect symbol, over a willow
obedient to the will of cool wind,
and mourning, over binoculars shining
over the pupil of somebody’s eye, over a rusty cannon,
over the garden gate which no longer exists,
over clouds, over rain drinking dew,
lost lifetimes ago, lies hidden still.
in bells, those airy carriages,
those bronze balloons.
