Guinevere said that Merlin had made a brief appearance in Camelot a week and a half prior—long enough to drop off some letters for her and Gaius and leave without so much of a word to anyone else. That pained him too—that neither he, nor Percival, received a letter. There was still so much unresolved between them, so much he wanted to ask...but he hadn 't a clue where his old friend was or if he 'd ever appear in Camelot again. He made it to the royal chambers and knocked. Guinevere 's maidservant Meliora opened the door.

Semester II Anchor – Historical Narrative Back in 1936, I was unsuccessful in my attempts to find a suitable job in journalism, even though I graduated from Harvard University with a major in English. Coincidentally, I was contacted by Jacob Baker, representing the Federal Writers Project, with the offer to interview former slaves in order to give insight to future generations about the system of slavery from those who actually experienced its cruelty. Of course, I accepted immediately and began conversing with several slaves within the month. The Federal Writers Project has definitely been the most eye-opening experience of my entire life, and it has already been fifteen years since I first interviewed these fascinating people.

She grew up in church, even though we didn’t go to church, she prayed every morning and carries a picture of Jesus in her wallet.
