segunda-feira, 12 de maio de 2008 air, and a je ne sais quoi,...

Francis Seymour Larpent (Judge-Advocate ) escrevia a 23 de Agosto de 1813.

«Nothing can look better than the condition of the Portuguese troops. They are cleaner than our men; or look so, at least. - They are better clothed now by far, for they have taken the best care of their clothes; they are much gayer, and have an air, and a je ne sais quoi, particularly the Caçadores both the officers and private men, quite new in a Portuguese. It is curious to observe the effects of good direction and example, how soon it tells. »
