Photograph from Mr Anonymous

The photograph we received today from Mr. Anonymous.

Right in the middle of a rare sunny period here in Belgium, the Jean-Baptise Degoux Society received unexpectedly this curious picture from a person calling himself Anonymous.

Here is what was written in French on the back of the photograph:

Chere Madame, M,

A la question ce qu'est arrivée à Aimé Degoux après la faillite dramatique de ‘les Dolmens de Degoux de Frères et les Menhirs' j'ai peur je ne pourra pas vous donner une réponse satisfaisante.

De toute façon, c'est avec le plaisir je vous envoie cette image de M Degoux le jour avant les faits.



We are happy to help our English readers with this computer translation:

Dear Madam, M,

To the question this that arrived to Aimé Degoux after the dramatic bankruptcy of ‘the Dolmens of Degoux of Brothers and the Menhirs' I am afraid I will not be able to give you a satisfactory response.

In any case, this is with the pleasure I send you this picture of M Degoux the day before the facts.



This picture and these words is all the Jean-Baptiste Degoux Society received today.

There may be more to follow!
