A Death Concealed: November 20, 2015

We aren’t anxious.  His nurses really are nice women; and full of fight and energy – and so far there have been no quarrels.  Indeed I had the greatest compliment I have had yet—‘you really are more sensible than other people, Miss Stephen” – and she didn’t know that I am also more inspired than most people.  Aint I?    (L1 249)
