Dear Miss Bloomwood:

Thank you for your letter of December 9 regarding your joint account with Mr. Luke J. Brandon. I
Agree the relationship between bank and client should be one of friendship and cooperation, and in
Answer to your question, my favorite color is red.

I regret, however, I am unable to reword entries on your forthcoming statement as you request. The
Particular debit item you refer to will appear on your next statement as “Prada, New York.” It cannot be
Changed to “Gas bill.”

Yours sincerely,

Dear Miss Bloomwood:

Thank you for your letter of January 4 regarding your joint

account with Mr. Luke J. Brandon, and for
The chocolates, which I must return. I agree it is difficult to keep tabs on every tiny purchase, and was
Sorry to hear that “the odd little misunderstanding” had arisen between you.

Unfortunately, it is impossible to split the statement into half as you suggest, sending half to yourself and
Half to Mr. Brandon and “keeping it our little secret.” All income and outgoings are itemized jointly.

That is why it is called a joint account.

Yours sincerely,

Walt Pitman

Marriage is all about. It’s about love, obviously. And companionship, and mutual support. And. . . soup?
My eye rests on a huge antique silver tureen, complete with ladle. Now, that would make a perfect
Wedding gift. I can just see it: Suze and Tarquin sitting by the fire, ladling soup into each other’s bowls.
It’ll be all lovely and domestic and heartwarming, and every time they drink soup they’ll think of me.
Perhaps I could even have it engraved. “To my best friends Suze and Tarquin on their wedding day with
Love and affection from Becky.” And a little poem, maybe.
Mind you, engraving is quite expensive. I’d better check how much it would all come to.
“Excuse me, how much is this soup tureen?” I say, turning to Arthur Graham, who is the owner of
Graham’s Antiques. This shop has to be one of my favorites in theWestVillage. It’s small and intimate
Like someone’s home, and everywhere you turn, there’s something you might want. Like that fantastic
