you can see by that, the people in France are not starving to death, the meat markets are full.

The most of the inhabitants wear long wooden shoes with iron all around the bottoms and they sound like a horse coming down the cobble stone streets. The people all take off their hats to “Old Glory” as they see it passing by and most every home has a American flag in the window. It does not sum to be I am so far from home.
