From Sidney to Sophie
6th July, 1946Dear Sophie,…Juliet seems a bit nervous around him – his silence is slightly daunting – and she made a dreadful mess of the tea things when he came by for Kit yesterday.But Juliet has always shattered teacups – remember what she did to Mother’s Spode? – so that may not signify. As for him, he watches her with dark, steady eyes – until she looks at him and then he glances away (I do hope you’re appreciating my observational skills).
