In making Le Diable Volant (in English : "The Flying Devil"), I wanted to complete the whole thing in French first and next try to adapt it in English: a very difficult task because I don't master English as well as I would. But the whole thing didn't have progressed as fast as I would and I don't have time to work on translation at this point. Thus, I have decided to delete the small English section that I have uploaded first in 2000. It let to all who don't understand French one solution : use an electronic translator.
