The Story to live together
I am writing to you in a hurry because I have just learned that Lord Byron will be a guest for a few days at our wonderful Cà Zen Venetian Villa. I have authorized Silvia, our housekeeper, to double the servants and spare expense, because I want to be sure of making a welcome worthy of our family. So, I invite you to present yourself at the servants’ lounge and guarantee your utmost commitment right now, so that every detail is taken care of perfectly in preparation of the arrival of this illustrious guest.
Be at Ca ‘Zen in the morning with a clean apron. If all goes well, you will receive double pay.
Signed Teresa Guiccioli Ca ‘Zen,
