Dandy Gilver and the Proper Treatment of Bloodstains by Catriona McPherson

1st May 1926 - Dear Alec, Just when those who should be working are all downing tools for this wretched strike (and I still can?t believe it ? I mean to say: riots, Alec ? in Edinburgh of all places) guess who is setting her virgin shoulder to its very first wheel? I am dressed in serge and sensible footwear, sleeping in an iron bed and dining off pickled tongue at six o?clock each day. I am, in short, that nice young Mrs Fleming?s new maid. But don?t worry, Alec dear: things haven?t got as bad as all that. It?s just that that nice young Mr Fleming is going to kill his wife. At least, she thinks so, and the more I hear about him from butler, cook and bootboy the more I?m inclined to agree. So I?m undercover, in disguise, bent upon foiling. And jolly hard work it is too ? tomorrow is my half-day free if you?d care take me out for a restorative bun. (Every maid needs a nice young man to buy buns for her.) Yours, Dandy xx p.s. Ask for Miss Rossiter: below stairs I am she.
