Some original papers we found in this house
I think probably these should have been entered last week, and last week's entry would have suited this week, but never mind, these are originals.
Above are a driving licence, a receipt for rental, and a hunting licence, all dated 1938.
These papers are letters written 1945 - 1947, again all found in this house. They are interesting because they mention the hard times in France just after the war.
One is from the archbishop saying he was going to be in the area, and did any of the parishioners have eggs or similar produce to spare because they were having difficulties managing - he asks if they can give anything "for the sake of our future priests".
Another is from Guadaloupe saying that they had been looking for chocolate and vanilla to send over, but couldn't find any. They could buy coffee at a ridiculous price, but there was no sugar whatsoever.
I didn't crop the second one quite so much, so that you can see the original floor tiles in the house.
