публикация №1190295964

20 сентября 2007 Александр Павлович Шиманский FAMOUS RUSSIANS

Аннотация от автора: "I have great bundles of grain but I have no mill and there is not enough water close by to build one. But there is water enough at a distance if only I shall have time to build a canal, but the length of my life is uncertain.
