Good friend Mimi Pixel has just been signed by Dodo Books on the strength of her mechanical journal. Advance of 70,000 shillings will keep her in gin for six months or more. Must consider starting own with unique angle, as hers (one woman’s struggle to bring up seven children in a nunnery – in secret). Can’t stay in cotton forever. Or can I? How long is a piece of cotton? (Sixteen foot nine inches on average).
