Summary:
Mia Hasterlik writes to Giulia Kortischoner from Nairobi, Kenya where she is visiting Susi Weiss. Mia congratulates Giulia on her pay raise, but scolds her and Kugel (Mia called Thomas Kugel, because he was round and thick-set like a "ball") for not dating their letters. She talks about Susi's 27th birthday and the weather and activities in Kenya. Mia talks about the local people of Kenya as well as Susi's butler and how Susi treats him and the other domestic workers. Mia is confused by this rude and odd relationship, Susi tells her she is too nice to the help. She also talks about going to see Hans Corey, a relative of the Kortischoner's living in Africa. Mia talks about the swahili language and the native peoples as well. Mia recounts her and Susi's horseback riding trip.
