Have a wonderful Easter weekend!

'We must face this: Eva's capacity for making trouble, attracting trouble, stewing trouble around her, is quite endless. She, er, begets trouble - a dreadful gift. And the more so for being inborn. You may not realise for how long and how painfully closely I've known that family. The Trouts have, one might say, a genius for unreality: even Willy was prone to morose distortions. Hysteria was, of course, the domain of Cissie. Your, er, generous defence of Cissie won't, I hope, entirely blind you to how much of what was least desirable in Cissie is in her daughter. Eva is tacitly hysterical.'
'Not the least of this unfortunate agent's fears are, that you may blow Cathay up by tampering with, er, intricate gas appliances, or burn the place down - he scented pyromania in your excitability when he struck matches.'
