...Or also, the 96 centimeters [tall] man, carrying [sic-wearing] a broad leather belt, shoes and panties [sic-underpants], which [sic-who] rose in the airs [sic] thanks to two boxes in the shape of pears, placed under each arm. This being was seen by Mr. Lacambre, forestry workman in Saint-Pardoux [sic- Perdoux1] (the Lot), on Monday, October 4, at 8:10 a.m., and the witness has even determined from the footprints that the small being fitted shoe size 21 [Europe standard]...
...Then only the facts would remain, logically unexplainable, which would constitute the true file on the Martians. One would then notice that this file is extremely thin, if not non-existent, and that in this business, there is much, far too much, literature.
MICHEL FIGUET ET JEAN-LOUIS RUCHON:
The two ufologists indicate in their book that on October 4, 1954, at 08:10, Mr. Lacambre saw at the edge of a brook within 200 meters of his residence, a small being of approximately 90 centimetre[s] in height and oddly dressed. It was brown, carried [sic-wore] a broad leather belt, leather shoes and carried [sic-wore] underpants. Under each arm he carries an object in the shape of a pear. The witness returned at [sic-to] his place to take his shotgun. Coming back stealthily, he found the small being bent, drinking drinks a water mouthful in the hollow of its hand [bent over the brook drinking water from his hands]. Then it collected stones which it put in its belt. Mr. Lacambre approached up to 12 meters and heard the creature utter: "ortou" or "ortin". It then flew vertically and disappeared from sight in 30 seconds.
During a purification of his UFO close encounters in France, FRANCAT, Michel Figuet received a letter of [sic-from] Mr. Bosc who informed him that the case was a hoax devised by its witness, Mr. Lacambre.
