*A town in southern Cambodia, now world famous for its pepper plantations - one of the best in the world.
I leave Longxuyen and go to Kampot. I'm quite happy with it, it's a money-saving post. I will be the only European in the place, it is 50 kilometres from the border of Cochinchina in Cambodia. I'll tell you about this new residence when I get there. It is a position of trust, it is a great favour done to me and I am very happy about it.
