My Dear Harriet

You have shown courage and I am proud of you.

Perhaps he will slip up. Arrogant men often do. They think that they don’t have to bother to treat the women who love them, with kindness – honesty – or respect. They think that their forgiving wives will remain ever so. They think that the worm will never turn . . .

So carry on darling, but do put the bottles away won’t you?

I leave you with this dictum: In hac vita, necesse est malum non triumphandum esse.

All love

Mum (in law)
