Chapter Summary

It was already three years since the author visited Scotland, where her husband went on business. Glasgow is the centre of industry and commerce just as Edinburgh is the centre of Scotland's politics. John and the author took a train for Glasgow at Haymarket Station in Edinburgh. It was an hour's ride. The author returned to Japan and she suffered from a series of problems. She had lost hearing in one ear and went to hospital on her forty-ninth birthday. She enjoyed reading the book about Scotland's history and listening to Scottish music, while recovering from her illness. The exchange of cards had continued between John and author. The author sent him a picture of her adult daughter in kimono. John sent back a letter of congratulations, and picture of Highlands to the author. The author dreamt of visiting the Highlands someday.
