Fruit Cake


Note received with an ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS fruit cake from a kind reader:

“At long last, the fruit cake I had promised. I apologize that I didn’t get
it to you in time for Christmas. I hope you enjoy it and, if you do, all I
ask in return is a Corner post for my Mom praising her fruit cake. Her name
is Raquel Moore-Green and she lives in Salem, Oregon. The fruit cake is
highly coveted by fruit cake lovers in and close to my family and is the
source of many ‘fruit cake conversations.’”

I am happy to confirm that Mrs. Moore-Green’s fruit cake is truly bodacious
and altogether superlative. Many thanks to her son for taking the trouble
to send it to me.
