“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”                                       “That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat.

  1. Lovely blog post! A fab summary of the whole story which I saw in the Museum in St Andrews when you brought the exhibition up. It was great to read the blog in French too. It’s a fab opportunity to practice my reading in French… I noticed that she used the past historic here and there and used the part of the verb s’agit which is sometimes used instead of soit ( from être). I laughed out loud when I saw the St Helens canal translated in the French,. It looks almost romantic. Canal Sainte Hélène!

    I hadn’t read the full letter when I saw the exhibition so it was great to read it at the end of the blog. You really get a picture of the domestic concerns just before Xmas in that house.

    A lovely story and great it has lasted so well within your family’s history.

    Thanks for re-blogging this!
