Embedded text or transcriptLeave well known pictures alone - Worth thousands, and not a fence as'd touch
it! Likewise Statues. I don't know what to do with you now I've got you! Trees are awkward
things too. I never fancied horses somehow. If you got an elephant out of the zoo, some
busybody'd stop you. Some of these old cathedrals must be worth millions, but could you get
rid of 'em, even in America?
