MRS. ORMEROD

AGATHA, my dear, you are a saint with your letters. They come every month as regularly as the tradesmen's bills, and mine to you are hardly more frequent than the demands for Poor Rate. They have to be long to restore British credit. Tonight I'm blissfully free; Bill has unexpectedly been called down to address a meeting of local big-wigs in his constituency, so you can picture me feeling all good inside-it isn't the cook's night out-chair drawn up to a blazing fire, coffee on the table beside me, and a fountain pen filled to capacity, which explains the blot.
I'm a pig I suppose to mention November luxuries like this when I remember how impossible you find the problem of maids. You ought to edit a new Famous Trials series. If you do I have a contribution to make. So here goes.
When you were last in England I think you met the Inchpens when they called one afternoon, though I expect you 've forgotten all about it. Aleck Inchpen was a medical missionary in equatorial Africa, tall, thin, stooping, dreadfully short-sighted, with a wisp of a beard; rather a big bug in the anthropological way, but a perfect dear. His wife was at the Royal Free with Nell Butterworth. You would never imagine she was a doctor. She rescues wasps from marmalade and puts them on the windowsill with a saucer of water for their wash and brush up. She reminds me rather of the French mistress at St. Olave's and the strange thing is I like her enormously. These two have faced innumerable hardships, have lived alone hundreds of miles away from other white people, have adopted I don't know how many black twins who would otherwise have been left to die, twins apparently being unlucky, and have now come back to England, where Aleck is to write an epoch-making work on native psychology in the intervals of going round as a deputation-a ghastly job-lantern slides, curios, silver collection, vicar in the chair,
