Her husband, held in prison and condemned to death, had been pardoned by the Convention, but the revolutionary tribunal at Nantes had not provided the pardon papers. Madame de Bonchamps sent her seven-year-old daughter to request the papers.
The judges demand that the child sing the prettiest song she knows in order to receive the pardon papers. The child begins to sing with full voice a Chouan song, the refrain of which is Vive le Roi, à bas la République; her genuine nature disarms the judges, despite the song that she sings them, and de Bonchamps daughter receives the writ of pardon.
