An Observation

The art of the successful salon depends on the exchange of abundant praise and a smidgeon of criticism. I have never met a human being who was undone by this discrepancy, nor an event. It is the etiquette of the salonniere, the basis of a bel esprit and the very core of our little café of Saint Gilgen. 'Encore! Bravissima! Let there be more coffee and cake.' Madama Sonnenburg.

My Dear Dodo,
Your praise is a perfect demonstration of my hypothesis!
Yours, Nan
