Our fairs and exhibitions are very popular with the people abroad and each of them is called an "eye-opener".* They show our great achievements in science, industry, agriculture and other fields of our national economy. Foreign visitors are interested both in the exhibits and the Russian way of life in general. These fairs and exhibi­tions do a lot to establish contacts and to promote trade, and trade, as we know,1 promotes peace.

XIX. Read and retell the story. Answer the questions given below:

Once the English poet Samuel Coleridge was walking along a village street. The postman was delivering letters at that time. When the postman came up to the door of a small house a young girl came out. "Here is a letter for you. I believe it's from your brother," said the postman. The girl took the letter and looked unhappy. Coleridge came up to them and asked: "What's the matter?" "I've got no money," said the girl and returned the letter to the postman. Coleridge felt sorry for the girl. He paid the postage and gave the letter to her.

When the postman had gone the girl thanked Coleridge but told him she was sorry he had paid the postage because there was nothing written in the letter. She told Coleridge that her brother had gone to work in London. Before he left, they had agreed that as they had no money to pay for the postage, he would send an envelope with nothing in it. She was to return the envelope to the postman. If the envelope arrived regularly, she would know that her brother was all right.

Coleridge was greatly impressed by the story. He told it to his friend who worked in the Post Office. His friend thought it would help many people if the charge for postage could be reduced. He thought it would be good to introduce stamps. A few years later the government agreed to his idea.

Samuel Coleridge —С. Колридж, английский поэт (1772—1834); poet— поэт; postman—почтальон; postage емкость почтового отправления; to feel sorry for smb.— жалеть кого-л., to agree — договориться; to agree to smth. — согласиться на что-л.; envelope — конверт
