THE TARPEIAN ROCK

refugees; the house is full. There are friends here and a crowd of strangers. Maman and Madame Menicot have succeeded in lodging 127 people, making the most of both houses, the stables and even the sheepfolds. To feed these poor exhausted people we have had to kill all the chickens in the poultry yard.
Andre, my dear, we are very unhappy. But there remains one steadfast hope; our country cannot die. France is immortal and she has a persevering and unshakable ally ... We too have something that even defeat cannot take from us: an immense love, beautiful memories, a long past of affection and trust. If the war reduces us to poverty, we will start again from zero.

`You can dictate them to me.'
`But you don't know English shorthand.'
`Yes, I do ... I have learned it during the war.'
This new accomplishment was to be of great service to us in the United States.
To find ourselves once more in New York sadly evoked the shining memories of the preceding year. To our personal suffering was added the distress of finding public opinion in large part hostile to France. Not only was our unhappy country occupied, despoiled and humiliated, but it was slandered as well. With sorrow and surprise we became aware of the development of a campaign, highly suspect in origin, that charged our soldiers with not having defended themselves.
