Franklin did not understand a word of these speeches, but he also applauded after each one .At last, after one of the speeches, everybody, including Franklin, got up, applauded, and cheered loudly .Then everybody began to laugh.
Franklin asked the person next to him.”What are they laughing at ?”
“They are laughing at you,” said the man. “In the last speech, the speaker spoke about you ,he said that France was proud of you that you were a very great man”.
