Well, as to your questions about Alison, I really cannot give very accurate answers as she is but the scullery maid, and thus is most often in the kitchen, a room reserved for the servants. From what Mrs. Hawkins has informed me, however, she has rather an attitude problem. Apparently she’s still having trouble taking orders without question…I think that this is a good experience for her though, she seems to be learning a lot and becoming more responsible.

Oh yes, the food in Spain is simply marvelous! I must agree, baby Peder is the most darling little boy! Do you get to babysit him often? Do you still do any art? We are going to hire an art tutor.
