I received a note from Chloë yesterday, the envelope sealed with a wax seal impressed with a design that reminded me vaguely of a leaf, perhaps the leaf of an oak or a horse-chestnut, but I’m not sure: my years of dendrology are long past. In the note she said she is collecting leaves and sticks and intends to put them together to make her very own tree. I have no idea what she’s talking about. Indeed, I don’t know who this Chloë person is. I can only assume the note was delivered to the wrong address.
