Contribution from pending member Mr JS part 3

The Jean-Baptiste Degoux Society hereby presents to the public the third part of the extensive contribution of pending member JS.
In this last chapter JS concentrates on a particular fact in the life of Mr Degoux, being his presumed relationship with Mrs Greyp.

We present these pictures with the text that was sent with them, but again the Society wants to draw the attention to the fact that it is not responsible for the historical value of it.

Mrs. Julia Greyp in 1928 on a car trip with JBD.

The car is not his, but lent from a friend. Miss (at that time) JG in her early twenties, JBD an already somewhat olderly men, but still very vital. JG remembers the trip well:
'We went to the countryside. We had fun, but afther some time, in the middle of a forest the car halted suddenly. Afther a quick inspection JBD said it was the 'piston'. He said the engine had to cool off for a long time and we 'll have to spent the night in the car. To our suprise we found blankets, food and wine in the booth. It was a night to remember. Next morning , as JBD had predicted, the motor started again and we drove home. '
