my grandmother? Sallie has one and Julia and Leonora each two, "Comme vostre principal objet doit estre de faire la guerre sans relache aux Anglois, il faut que vostre plus particulire application soit 348 de detourner de tout autre employ les Fran?ois qui sont avec vous, en leur donnant de vostre part un si bon exemple en cela qu'ils ne soient animez que du dsir de chercher faire du proffit sur les ennemis.
