        The Mathematics of a Boarding House

          (with Apologies to Stephen Leacock)

1. Any landlady is an irregular polygon: that is a

figure of many corners + much "side," and all

landladies are equal to all other landladies.

2. Any landlady can be reduced to terms by a

series of propositions.

3. A single room is one without magnitude

and without dimensions.

4. Any two Boarding House meals are not

equal to two square meals.

5. If two boarders occupy similar rooms

and the wrangle between the one boarder

and the landlady is equal to the wrangle

between the landlady and the other

boarder, then their bills will be equal -

otherwise one will be greater than the

other; then the latter will be less than it

might have been, which is absurd.

You have been a brick dear Sister -

Thank you for the many kindnesses

crowded into one short week.
