Excerpt from Message

Yes, very handsome + amiable you “gentleman” if he was at Calais, he would create a sensation; very [illegible] also your big trees, and well made to astonish our fancy of Frenchmen. This, is a tower of very great antiquity, and of Roman origin. A man living on the top of this tower, keeps a constant look out. In case of fire he rings an alarm bell and shows by a signal the direction of the conflagration. Truly yours C. Desmoulins
