In Lyons, France on June 24, 1894, Santo Caserio allegedly stabbed President Sadi Carnot while riding in an open carriage. The next day Carnot's widow received a letter containing a photograph of Ravachol inscribed, "He is avanged." On the day of his execution, August 15, he was said to have murmered a few words as his neck was placed on the block of the guillotine. Some heard, "Vive l'anarchie!", others, "A voeni nen," meaning, in the Lombard dialect, "I don't want to."
