"Le Baptême" is a short story by the French author Guy de Maupassant. The story was published in 1885.


It was first published in the newspaper Gil Blas on 13 January 1885, before being reprised in the Monsieur Parent collection.[1]

This text should not be confused with a short story of the same name which was published in 1884. This story begins with the following words:

Allons, docteur, un peu de cognac...


The story is about an old navy doctor who lives in a country house near Pont-l'Abbé. His gardener, Kérandec, has asked the doctor to be the godfather to his son. On 2 January, they set off to the church.
