Wonderful!! I hate to take you away from Maxime, but I’m sure he will manage for an evening. Is there any dish you would prefer?
He will manage. Goodness, it’s not as if I were his nursemaid; Eleanore attends him. No, I have no preference beyond a fondness for vegetables. I still believe that the convention should adopt our suggestions for the armies’ diet.
Hmmmm, I know you aren’t really his nursemaid, but sometimes it seems differently! And in that case, I shall have Elisabeth make a most healthy meal. But I will, of course, give her carte blanche with regards to the desserts.
