A letter in the London Times:
Sir, ----Reports favorable to the behavior of Germans during the occupation
of France are rare. It will interest your readers to know that a German
Admiral who had commandeered my house in Bordeaux had my beautiful furniture
stored while he was residing there. Before being expelled from Bordeaux he had the
whole of the house re-papered and re-painted.
What courtesy!
Meanwhile, another German was thrust upon the board of directors of my
French company in Bordeaux. He claimed and was paid a high salary (altogether
500,000f.) to supervise my British interests. Each year he appropriated the
totality of my share of the profits and that of my children. Needless to say that
he sent to Germany the said profits. What a fiend!
Yours, etc., B.H. Seward.
