“We tell the most remarkable stories about our journeys in South America and when we have been lying the most and somebody dares to question, we encourage them to write to You to ask if it is not true. Should you receive such a letter, I am convinced that You wouldn’t give me away but testify that what I have told is the simple words of truth. ” DS
