I couldn’t understand all the secrecy. I thought Mrs Hayes was asking me back when she wrote but she said afterwards that it was a hint to stayaway. There’s not a single thing in this life that you can’t take in two opposite ways. Especiallywith people like Mrs Hayes readyto swear black is white. She had written two pages on the subject of potatoes which I read with myhomesick heart bursting from myblouse. Two bags of Golden Wonders deposited in her cellar bya man who nearlypassed out taking them down with the sheer weight of them & theywere balls of flour. Mrs Hayes onlywished that I was there for them, no one appreciated myfood more than you, Miss Cronin & was that an invitation or what with mymouth watering as fast as myeyes?
