“To tell you the truth, I haven’t been following his progress about our great and fair country too carefully, on account of being ensnarled in McCarthy again. How I wish he would die, so that I could think about something else.”
I think I liked this quote, having personally felt that way about various political figures. Not so much that I wish they would die, but very much that they would go away. I love the little insights into these two womens’ lives in these letters. Highly enjoyable read, recommended by As the Crowe Flies (and Reads).
