"Nous étions si proches que nous nous parlions ; ils crurent une fois m'avoir démonté, et un de ces gens me cria en français : Père blanc, les coups ont-ils porté? Je pointai ma pièce et je donnai dans un sabord de sa sainte-barbe où il y eut du fracas. Je leur criai à mon tour : Et celui-là, cornard, est-il bon? " On voudrait tout citer de ce livre de bonne humeur (1722) qui fit les délices de Chateaubriand et de Paul Morand. Car si le père Labat, dominicain de son état, était un rude gaillard, c'était surtout un formidable écrivain. Un Saint-Simon qui aurait oublié de mâcher ses mots et qui, à l'instant de l'abordage en compagnie de ses amis flibustiers de la mer Caraïbe, trouve l'odeur de la poudre plus douce à ses narines que celle de l'encens. On s'explique mal qu'un tel livre n'ait jamais fait l'objet, depuis le XVIIIe siècle, que d'éditions plus on moins " arrangées ". Michel Le Bris en propose ici une version scrupuleusement fidèle au texte authentique de l'auteur
