Accompanying a team of loggerheads from the gardeners guild, Seymore and Bryhta go with Leornian and Coca on an outing to the Old Pinewood at Lanham, away to the south of the Promontory. Seymore concludes his letter with this introduction to sundry observations about attempting to make Christmas perfect: If an abstract idea of perfection is the standard by which Christmas is measured, the effort is doomed from the start.
