Description

MISS SUSANNAH CHRESSHAM OBSERVES "You ask me about Rose-what can I say? Alas, that my talents should not be equal to your curiosity!

"I have chosen a wet day to write to you and the afternoon hours when my duties are done, so that nothing interferes between us but my faltering pen. Aunt Agatha sits in the next room making knots.

You imply about Rose, and I cannot pretend not to understand.show more
