It was Lennox who broke the news to us. Usually we listen to the BBC news and News about Britain; but on Wednesday morning we listened to DBS, trying to find out what new imbecility the Government of Dominica was up to. So we missed the notice, worthy of a Prime Minister, about our friend's departure from life. Lennox knew how close she was to us, and had read some of her short letters starting 'Dearest. .. 'in a huge crabbed handwriting.
