Literary synopsis

Fanny Jenisch? She was recovering, there was a history of couliose or whatever, they were attached to Vevey. It was the Hambourgeois, that’s for sure. But in fact, Jenisch, I never knew the origin of this name, it is Jenitsch or Jenatch, is a tribe of Gypsies. So it's funny this lady, anyway, it's funny, her husband was perhaps of Gypsy origin, but German. Anyways, you see the story.

-Auguste Robinet.
