7506. REVOLUTION (French), Famine and.—[continued].

We have had such a
winter as makes me shiver yet whenever I think
of it. All communications, almost, were cut
off. Dinners and suppers were suppressed, and
the money laid out in feeding and warming the
poor, whose labors were suspended by the rigor
of the season.—
To Madame de Brehan. Washington ed. ii, 591. Ford ed., v, 79.
