.Just a suggestion. Why don't yon
move over and make room? Can't you
see the old town is overrun with good
people wanting shelter for the winter.
If you can spare a few rooms for good

and help locate the people. Rent some
rooms or build a cottage and house
the folks, and do it for a reasonable
price don't rob them. Do your bit
and put the old town over the top.
