Siam: Peggy's Disposition and Character


Kenneth wrote that Margaret looked plump and healthy. She said that she felt better than at any time since coming to Thailand. Peggy had a "sort of fragile-looking beauty, and is very dainty in all she does. That is, she is until she decides to spank Bill for something he has done. And then you should see the determination on her face. Bill is as big as she is, but she handles him and gives him a sound spanking when she thinks he does wrong." 


Landon, Kenneth (1903-1993)


August 8, 1930
