Title

Siam: Kenneth Was Always Getting Something Done

Description

Ma Pawm and Ah Sim came to the Landons very poor and not so nice looking. Margaret taught both of them many things and they greatly improved. Ma Pawm was fond of Kenneth and even more so of Carol when she was born. There was a lot of work to do, and the servants were noisy, but they improved in this as well.
