Three Sisters & the Puritan
by James L. Sauer
Archives. That’s what brought us together. The room was full of librarians, registrars, and other academic life-forms. We moved toward the beautifully arranged luncheon tables and were seated. I was sitting with three sisters. No, they weren’t related. They were nuns, three old nuns: human relics of Catholicism as it was a generation ago. After preliminary announcements, grace was said, and the waiters began to serve the meal.
The food was excellent. The first course was a soup, a tasty vegetable in a clear broth.
