On an editor at work:
Miss Julie Eidesheim, of Alsatian extraction, and consequently a linguist, is a foster-mother of books. She delivers them, pins up their didies without comment on sex, numbers and picks out the solecisms from their sheets. Frequently and usually she proceeds further. She teaches her charges how to spell, she corrects their pronunciation with diacritical marks, she gives them courses in geography, history, botany, foreign languages, etc., etc., etc. — — and English — always and above all in English.
