I hadn't even thought about the possibility that books were on sale at Fort King George. To me Miss Bessie was just the lady who played the organ at the Presbyterian Church when I was a boy. It's always hard, I suppose, to think of one's own native turf as in any sense a tourist attraction.
I'm a native of Darien who's been gone many years. I'd really like to know how you came across Miss Bessie Lewis' book.
Loved your review of "A Wrinkle in Time." I had a similar experience--just now read the book for the first time at age 29, was worried as soon as I saw "It was a dark and stormy night."

Lovely book indeed, though!
