During this evening, several performances are given successively. Denis Martinel inaugurates the evening. He is blindfolded; five cardboard targets hung by a string are mounted on the wall. Antoine Alvarez places Denis Martinel in front of each one of them, he lights a firecracker each time, the targets swing. Denis Martinel strikes blindly at each explosion. The banderillas [darts] randomly hits one of the circles of targets which all carry the painter’s symbol. The public vigorously applauds each shot taken as if it were a feat.
