Pliny the Elder is credited with popularizing, in Latin, an old Greek saying that there is always something new out of Africa: ex africa semper aliquid novi. Much the same is true of La France Profonde

Menuiserie générale is general carpentry and joinery; neuf et réparation means that he makes new things and repairs old ones; and a cerceuil is a coffin. For any vampires among my readers who may need their coffins repaired, Monsieur Ayrault is in Mirebeau, somewhat north of Poitiers.
