Mary scribbled here a note on the edge of the page:
“Shall I omit this, before the book is published?”
I guess Mary was worried lest men would read this line, and start suspecting their wives.
I decided to leave this remark, thinking that we’ve reached a stage in history, in which men started recognising women’s talents, and cunning is no longer needed in man/woman relations.
Well, at least in some quarters of the Western world. And at least until America will be less great again.
