Dear Mum,
I thought you might like to hear what Mont-Havre is like, since it is very different than Yorke (or anywhere else I’ve been in Cambria).
Mont-Havre is built down the side of a flat-topped mountain, with the poor sections nearer the top. They didn’t excavate the peak to make it flat; the first Provençese colonists found it that way and saw in it a natural harbor for sky-ships. Madame Truc tells me the explorers’ vessel was losing buoyancy at the time, so the discovery was a blessed relief. They called the mountain Mont-Havre, which would be Mount Haven or Mount Harbor in Cumbrian, and the name naturally passed to the city that grew on the mountain side
