Now why, may I hazard an inquiry, would Kaya the indian be so inclined to "squish" tomatoes between rocks, as you mentioned in your last letter? Is it to create some sort of tomato sauce for her to eat? But surely, her culture is not that advanced yet? And why then, would she be making an Italian cuisine? I am quite intrigued.
William was always a well-behaved little baby and never cried when I requested that he desist the activity. Now as he grows up, however, he is becoming more and more troublesome for Edward and I. He spends most of his days in friendly scholarly discussion with his good friend Pierre, who is, of course, a nephew of Mrs. Lavendar Fox.
Together they are studying the Latin language to assist them in their entrance exams to Oxford, which they both plan to attend come their sixteenth year. All this is well and good, as you may imagine, but as soon as Pierre leaves, William becomes as listless as a leafless tree in the heat of August.
I simply don't know what to do about it besides to give him more duties and assignments to keep him busy.
And how is little Britta? Is she behaving for you lately? And what are her latest projects?
Yours, Lily Merriman
