Miss Prim, did you know that Emily Brontë studied German while things were baking in the oven?" asked little Eksi out of the blue that morning, as she busied herself shaping a tiny portion of pastry taken from the main tart.

"No, dear, I had no idea, but it sounds very interesting.  I suppose your uncle told you about it?"

"No, he doesn't know much about that sort of thing.  Uncle Horacio told me.  He says she used to pace up and down the kitchen with a German textbook in her hand while she was keeping an eye on the bread in the oven.  Isn't that lovely?"
