  1. I, as well, visited the Guépratte when it came to Chicago. A senior college French major, I enjoyed talking with the sailors. Only the officers spoke English, so the seamen were happy to chat with French-speaking locals. I ended up taking one of them to a Michigan Boulevard jewelry store, so he could buy his fiancée a Chicago gift.
