Most Women Are Dull and Stupid

Chapter Text

I always enjoy when the Priestly's call, well, not
The husband so much. William has hard time
Calling a spade a spade. Eliza on the other hand
Will analyze the spade's motivations for digging,
Whether it's a garden or a grave. This morning,

For example, he showed shock that Ann would
Go to York, so suddenly, with Miss Lister, to consult
A doctor there when she had a doctor here. But
Eliza calmly said it was to separate her from her kin.
William tried to shush his wife, but that horse

Had left the paddock. I told him. I said, "What is
Unspoken, William, is not always unkown."
I finished my bit of cake. "You mark my words.
Oh yes. Miss Lister will have her in Paris before
We know it." I shared a knowing glance with Eliza.
