This letter describes the first Christmas Seymore and Bryhta shared as newlyweds. 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.

It is just as certainly a description of the world Carol Cordiale shares with her husband in their country acreage in historic upstate New York--as Carol describes it, situated "on a rise nestled between two hills with a brook flowing from East to West." Together they have long cultivated an herb and cottage flower garden, raised sheep and goats, and even opened a little wool shop where, for a few years, Carol could sell the yarns she spun from the wool she gathered from her Nubian and Angora goats, and her llama, "Tommy-Hawk...
