This site seems quite simply to copy Wikipedia articles (a pet peeve of mine) in order to draw traffic (and sell advertising).

The Wikipedia article appears to have been updated a bit, but basically that's the site's (uncredited) source:

wiki is a great resource for facts and dates Jimbo
I make no apologies for making use of it.

get the full Campan memoirs in bite sized chunks
go here ...

then go get natural readers.... cut and paste those chunks
in.. then sit back... give your eyes a rest... and listen to Mme Campan

get Natural Reader
the free version
go here

the things I do for this forum.... but I sometimes think... why bother !

silverstar, wikipedia is a notably dubious source for facts and dates and should always be verified by checking the source of all information posted (if there is one!). I recommend the same for THIS website - do not trust what you read on the internet!

For what it's worth what you do for this forum is no more and a great deal less than what many others do, Jim for one ... if it's not worth your while, then as you say, why bother.

Having problems on the forum? You can contact me for help via email or google talk:
