    More accurately: "One does what one can." Quote from a French Officer who
    boarded the Patna after she drifted and who stayed on board some 36 hours.

    Talking of "little grey cells", mine would have written "qu'on" rather
    than "q'on".

    A Google search produces both forms, so which is the more correct
    French, or are both acceptable?
