  1. I came across your article when searching ‘Quaker – France – Montpellier (don’t ask)

    I wanted to say how very much I enjoyed your writing and photos (wish there were more).

    So thank you for your kind spirit and I’m sure more readers will enjoy the article.

    Best wishes and good fortune.
