Examples

  • We passed now innumerable little towns and villages clinging to red, brown, and green hillsides, with here and there a thatched cottage of other days, for, in the _agglomĂ©rations_, as the French government knows the hamlets and towns, it is now forbidden to thatch or rethatch a roof; you must renew it with tiles or slates when the original thatch wears out.

    The Automobilist Abroad

  • All, through forest life, had become skillful in such tasks, and it did not take them long to rethatch the roof.
