This article has a twofold purpose; first, to try to think our way through some of the problems facing the French as they prepared for their winter quarters, so that we can understand the solutions reflected in this billeting list, and make some sort of guess how other Frenchmen were accommodated; and second, to provide a modern translation of this list, based on more than one French original, and edited for easy comprehension by the English reader.
