Collage 625

"About a week earlier, boot-making supplies and linen cloth had been distributed to the French, and the soldiers had asked the prisoners to make boots and shirts for them. 'It's ready, it's ready, little falcon!' said Karataev, coming out with a neatly folded shirt.
. . . 'Promised and done are born brothers. I said by Friday, and so I did,' said Platon, smiling and unfolding the shirt he had made."
