Oh, how everything sparkles and how sweet it smells!
Her Ladyship, Adelgunde von Uselstein
Every time I sit down at my toiletry table, I think of my dear husband. It gave me such joy as a young bride when he presented these exquisite goods of shiny silver to me. But regarding the contents, I rather take care of them myself. Next week I have to dispatch another order to the court’s perfumer to stock up on pomades and perfume. I just love it when everything smells so fine!
Builders are nothing but trouble!
Chief administrator Behring
Yesterday, the plumber demolished half the wall to install water pipes in the country house. His lordship will take him to court over that because he hacked through the brand-new power line. But frankly, I don’t know how much of all that new technology can be made to fit into these old walls.
Anyone wants a country house?
Manfred Schulz, Mayor
There have been many shady realtors sneaking around Count Klagenfeld’s country house lately. He and his wife moved out a while ago. There is not even central heating in that old rickety house. Can you believe that? I’m not sure whether the realtors know how much money they will need to invest? Well, a couple of them will probably approach me soon: Without the council there is no way they can turn the house into a luxury hotel. Too bad the community does not have the money to buy it.
