Well, my grandfather managed a paper mill in Three Rivers, Quebec from 1918
to 1923, and my aunt was born in Three Rivers, Quebec, in 1920!
Come on, now, folks, after what you did to my Nurse ancestors, we're
entitled to Anglify Trois Riveres.
I am at a loss to understand how a Texan would not respect the right of
places to their original names.
After all, your metropolis near the Gulf is not "Saint Anthony" but "San
Antonio", and your city in the southwest of the Republic [excuse me, the State]
is not "The Pass" but "El Paso".
Your kinfolk to the North deserve at least as much consideration as your
neighbors to the South.
