Here is the translation of part of an

; After much research it has been so

Spanish bull, t ut here is a Dutch bull:
"The pi had no marks on his ears
except a short tail."
And here is a German bull:

r.lunlers in Knglin speech are not
uncommon. The orthodox bull of Ire

A fellow of the Iloyal society speaks :

"The West Indies wlil now have a
J future which they have never h.id in .

which makes your potatoes taste nasty
