This may be the end.

Dear Mrs Esther,

It is alright. I can understand you being in shock. I can understand you being so emotionally disturbed. Uncle Cosmo's untimely death was a shock to us all.

Please do not doubt reality.

I am told that his death is as real as Dr Blore's vaccine. What could be more real than that?

You knew he was joking all along? Really, Mrs Esther! I'll tell you what. I am a reasonable woman. I will ask the people who have been reading all of the letters what they think. A small survey, if you will. Let's see how credible your story is. I'll let you know how you go. Okay?

By the way, the offer of the ears is still open, should you wish.

Yours in black,

Kaye Serrah.
