Morissot was angry because the cannon fire was disturbing the peace of a beautiful day. He had no patience for the war or the weapons.

Morissot, who was anxiously watching his float bobbing up and down, was suddenly seized with the angry impatience of a peaceful man toward the madmen who were firing thus, and remarked indignantly:

"What fools they are to kill one another like that!"
