Dear Queenie,

  I just came across a letter to you in which the Eldest Sister wanted to know who should get her mother’s cooking recipes. I was thinking of local publisher Lasana Sekou, the House of Nehesi.

  Just a suggestion, Queenie.—R.S.

Dear R.S.,

  And a good one, provided her mother would not have wanted the recipes kept within the family and would have been willing to have them made public.

  Thank you, and sorry for the delay in my response.
