"The messieurs will find themselves hot to-day," he remarked.
Messieurs were drinking, he noticed, the best wine in the cellars!

Now, messieurs, if you will tell me what you want, I will buy the things for you.
"Good-by, Messieurs," I said politely as the three hastened to leap ashore.
"Good-morning, messieurs," and she made a sweeping courtesy.
