Excerpt: PENELOPE IN SWITZERLAND. A DAY IN PESTALOZZI?TOWN. Salemina and I were in Geneva. If you had ever travelled through Europe with a charming spinster who never sat down at a Continental table d'hote without being asked by an American vis?a?vis whether she were one of the P.?s of Salem, Massachusetts, you would understand why I call my friend Salemina. She doesn't mind it. She knows that I am simply jealous because I came from a vulgarly large tribe that never had any coat?of?arms, and whose ancestors always sealed their letters with their thumb nails. Whenever Francesca and I call her ?Salemina,? she knows, and we know that she knows, that we are seeing a group of noble ancestors in a sort of halo over her serene and dignified head, so she remains unruffled under her petit nom, inasmuch as the casual public comprehends nothing of its spurious origin and thinks it was given her by her sponsors in baptism.
