Title

Siam: Margaret's Letter to Kenneth

Description

Margaret reads her letter to Kenneth. Letters between the two were often opened and read. She already sealed letters with wax. She refers to a tea party to which Mr. Bulkley had invited her, trying to make her look like a brute. She gives other stories of things that took place while Kenneth was gone. Charlie and Ma Wan came to live on the mission compound and the Landons got to know them.
