The Dumchester Letters 17 July
To Mrs Chrysanthemum Sideloader
The Carnegie Library
Bloggington on Sea
Dear Mrs Sideloader
My efforts in Dumchester have begun with an appraisal of the number of staff working in each library, the times at which they work and the numbers of readers visiting and using the libraries at different times of day.
The people are amiable, but Perkins does not like Black Pudding.
PS I am to stay at the Abide-with-me Freedom Lodge, which allows pets to stay. This is satisfactory in some respects, but the gentleman on the floor below evidently keeps pigeons which is distressing for both Perkins and I. We will become accustomed, I have no doubt, but hopefully they will race soon, which I gather means they will be away for several days.
