"Frenchmen-- thank God they drink a lot"

Postcard Message (Translated)

Your Honour, Mr. Gerlings,

Your letter, etc., has been received.  I am happy to hear that London is doing well and that the trees grow so nicely.  Many thanks for the information.  We are very busy at the brewery, first for Christmas, now for "le jour de l'ander".  Frenchmen-- thank God they drink a lot, especially on holidays.  I trust that your health is all right.

Receive my best wishes for the New Year.
