Mon cher David,
I would love to try a cheese from Jamaica! Right now Le
Papier has sent me quite a few cheeses to try – it is fantastic! But… ugh. I am
so embarrassed. They said they wanted photos with the reviews, and I assured
them that I could take good ones. They liked the first article, but they hated
the photos. And now… they are sending a photographer.
I cannot tell you how much I hate this idea. He will poke
into everything, I just know it, and you know I cannot afford to let that
happen. Undoubtedly it will be some young dandy that’s never been in an airship
before, gawking at everything and getting underfoot, lugging his camera box
At any rate, he is supposed to arrive next week. Because I
signed a contract with the paper I have to bring him on board, but I am not
pleased. I’ll send an update once he arrives.
I’ve enclosed my most recent article. I hope you enjoy it.
All my love,
