He stated. "All goes well in Algeria, at least here where I am. Sidi-Bel- 'Abbe's is in the middle of a rich fertile plain .with., an altitude of around 1500 feet.-And, as in other parts of .'Algeria; the main crops are wheat and grapes for wine. "Yesterday, I .had lunch with the representative /of; the • French gov- ernment'in ;this" region ""and the American: Consul. I learned a bit about the_•: government but .it is a very difficult, one (to understand. "Today .was'-a bit- different. The chauffeur.;,. ; pl'.'the'.'Trench 'family with whom TvV stayed for ' two days got; married. I went with "my host .and; his family to see the Arab marriage. We stayed for an hour arid a half. It is hardly'pos- sible to see all because the marriage feast lasts for two or three days. I understand that the chauffeur had paid 80,000 francs (around $230) for 'his wife. Before the day of the marriage, he 'had never seen his-wife —'never.-:'.. '. ^ ' "The feast begins with the killing of the 'sheep •— a ritual in-itself. The sheep are roasted on a spit over an open fire. All the men sit around talking, and:, .eating. '.; The women 'are in another, room .Where it is agauist;-their, .'religion'for a man to enter. ;.V "After the meal the singing begins. 'The so-called orchestra : — flutes and drums —plays the 'music and a man sings. The men and boys sit around and listen and contribute money to the welfare of the'newly-weds (who are not present.) I understand that.this part of the ceremony becomes rather savage later on in 'the night. "I will arrive in :New York on December 11 and, after four or five days in ..Washington, I'll return home."
