The French text reads:

Eh bonjour l'enchanté de vous rencontrer — Comment se porte Madame ? – A merveille – Dans l'eau je ne vous reconnaissais pas; je vous prenais pour un lion – Vous êtes bien bon, c'est ce que tout le monde me dit.

Oh hello! It is so nice to see you – how's your wife? — wonderful – In the water I didn't recognize you; I mistook you for a lion – You are very good, that is what everyone says.
