La Petite Maison dans la prairie, tome 1 de Laura Ingalls Wilder
Lettre de Rose à son père

I notice Mama Bess (Laura) says nothing about it in her letters, but I can quite understand why she does not. Still, I feel it is only right you should know, and think it my duty to tell you. Wow. I was gearing up for Rose’s fears that Laura had Alzheimer’s or something, but here goes: Mama Bess is growing fat."
