Re: La Marseillaise 14 July 1795

Dear Sinead,

Since this was written on my response, I will translate mine and Glen's, to
whom mine was directed. Glen Cook was responding, as you know, to Sinclair's
posting of the French patriotic song. My French is not the best. Rather it
be Spanish, in which I would be much more nearly fluent.

Glen: "Vraiment, la Franc est la Mere spirituelle de la Revolution
Americaine."  Rough translation, "Truly, France was the spiritual mother
 or inpirational parent) of the American Revolution."

Stan: "Vrai de'claration, je pense. Salut France! (Should say la France)
Merci Sinclair aussi"  Rough translation: "True statement, I believe. Hail
France! Thank you SInclair also.

Hope this helps some.
