No longer masculine Francis but feminine-with-a-difference Emilia, vaguely Latin or Italian or French but in any case foreign, not domestic; []

      Miksi en aikoinaan huomannut antaa omilleni tuollaisia viivallisia, vai olenko näin viehättynyt niihin vain Sinun kauttasi. Eikö Sinulla ole kaksoisnimeä? Onko Sinulla ylipäänsä toista nimeä? Minun toinen nimeni on Emilia (Miili-tädin mukaan), ilman ajatusviivaa.
