#124 — Perhaps not CM’s source, but this article ( http://www.liberation.fr/france/2016/08/02/quand-le-dr-tosquelles-fonde-la-societe-du-gevaudan_1469919 ) fits at least some of the information: “On attendait alors les livraisons d’armes” — We were waiting for a delivery of arms; “ce n’était pas le malade seul qu’il fallait soigner, mais l’institution et les murs qui l’entourent” — It’s not just the patient that had to be treated, but the institution and the walls which surround it.
