Richard came home from work one evening and found Martha filUng in a survey about friends. A woman had brought it, an hour ago, she said. It was designed to find out what sorts of networks of support people had, what were the patterns of caring; Martha had to write in the names of their good friends, people they could turn to in times of accident, trouble, difficulty; borrow money from, that sort of thing. Possibly people they had already turned to in the past.
