Antoine Biétrix (1817-1904)
Antoine Biétrix (1817-1904) wrote numerous texts in dialect, especially La lettre de Bonfol. Originally from Fregiécourt, he was interested in the spoken dialect of his region, the Ajoie, and hence the words from his dictionary are used in the district of Porrentruy. It is presented in the form of a dictionary in two columns, with the dialect on the left and the French on the right.

This autograph by Antoine Biétrix contains anecdotes in patois which he collected and wrote down himself. The short stories give the people of Bonfol a terrible reputation. Even if the stories don't concern the people of Bonfol directly, they are attributed to them, undoubtedly because the name of the village lends itself to such.
