oh, my, this is such a piece of history

There is no danger of snakes crawling up his pant legs, Lisl.
Lisl: Only a man who lives in such hot regions would think of that comment, Ray
He looks a fine country gentleman Elisabeth.
Lisl: He does, but he wasn't. His father, who was a valet, was imprisoned for stealing jewels from a certain Russian Princess Soltykoff soon after her death. He was valet to her husband.
Apparemment, il a eu une vie bien remplie.
Lisl: He certainly looks like it, Martine
Impressive grandfather who seems like a man of character. I like these portraits of the past time
Lisl: I can't find out a lot about him, but he had a sad life - his father was imprisoned, and his wife died when my grandmother was only three, leaving three small children.

Oh, a proud and multitalented gentleman!

He looks very important Lisl, and what careers.
Lisl: This was just a few of them, Chad. I don't think he was at all important!
Dressed very much as a country man of the time.
Lisl: I wonder if this was him in one of his acting roles
A man of substance in every sense Lisl
Lisl: Quite beefy?
He, like you, liked to keep busy.
Lisl: Yes, I think he did, Mary
Imposant ce Monsieur !
Et beau souvenir de famille
Lisl: It's good for me to know what he looked like
SUch a stately pose Friendship
Lisl: I wonder what he was really like!
I like the puttees and mirror polished boots
Lisl: His boots were certainly very shiny
De la prestance avant toute chose...
Fière allure !
Lisl: He certainly looked smart this day, perhaps he had an acting role
Proud man.
Lisl: He looks pleased with his world
