Taking the Cure
Aunt Cora has been recovering well and has been a frequent visitor of Papa and I at our home – I do like saying home rather than house, it feels so much more permanent. Anyway on her last visit she told us that her doctor has advised her to ‘take the cure’ so as to restore her nerves or something. It did sound a bit silly, it is just water after all! Papa immediately suggested Bath but Aunt Cora exclaimed it was not the season for Bath and perhaps Cheltenham, or the newer resort at Leamington would be better. There was something about some Duchesses going to Leamington and that made it better, but I really was not listening properly as it was not anything particularly interesting to me.
