Letters from Armorica, 4 Juillet 33AF


Dear Aunt Maggie,
Thank you for writing; it’s good to hear from you. I hope all is well with Uncle George?
Now that that’s covered—it’s all very well for you to say that I should have spoken with you before I left, but you know as well as I do that if I had you’d have felt compelled to tell Mum, and Mum would have felt compelled to tell Dad, and Dad would have taken steps, and I’d still be in Yorke. That might have been a favorable outcome for the three of you, but it would have been a far from favorable outcome for me.
Nevertheless, you’re quite right. I should have foreseen that Dad would learn of my letters and would forbid Mum from communicating with me, and I should have begun by writing to you rather than to her
